Brandonites win big at racquetball provincials

A trio of Brandonites came home from the provincial racquetball championships in Winnipeg as champions, while two of them won a pair of division titles.

Kurtis Cullen, ranked 12th in Canada, went undefeated through the men’s singles open event and claimed the title with a 15-4, 15-3 win over Jen Saunders, the No.2-ranked women’s player in the country who played in the men’s field. Cullen also won the mixed doubles championship with fellow Brandonite Teighan Fleming. They defeated Darryl Drohomerski and Liane Bissonnette 15-6, 15-11 in the final.

Cullen, however, missed out on a perfect event as he and Dennis Oteyza lost the doubles open final 9-15, 15-4, 11-8 to Saunders and Brian Campbell.

Fleming, meanwhile, teamed up with Bissonnette to win her second title of the tournament in the women’s doubles event as they defeated the Wheat City tandem of Alex Murray and Milana Paddock in the final 11-15, 15-11, 11-6.

Murray, however, proved to be the best women’s singles player in the field as she took that title with 15-4, 15-8 win over Fleming in the final. Paddock placed fifth after winning the consolation final by no show.

In the men’s singles open event, Saunders proved to be the Brandonite killer until she faced Cullen. She knocked off Cameron Wachs 15-13, 7-15, 12-10 in the semifinals and Pat Madill 8-15, 15-4, 11-5 in the quarter-finals to leaves Wachs in a tie for third and drop Madill to the consolation side of the draw. Madill reached the consolation final, but lost it 15-12, 14-16, 11-3 to Drohomerski to place sixth overall.

Saunders continued to haunt Wachs and Madill in the doubles open event as she and Brian Campbell defeated the Brandonites 5-15, 15-9, 11-8 in the semifinals.
