Kurtis Cullen’s run for a national title came to an end on the first day of men’s singles play at the Canadian racquetball championships on Wednesday in Brossard, Que.
The 22-year-old Brandonite, who’s ranked 13th in the country but was the event’s ninth seed, fell 15-7, 15-4 to Saskatoon’s Nathaniel Hasulak in the quarter-finals. Hasulak is the tournament’s eighth seed.
Cullen, who easily beat Anthony Schonberger of Hamilton 15-8, 15-3 in the opening round earlier in the day, will now play for a ninth-place finish. He faces Alain Lavigne of Joliette, Que., in today’s Blue Draw quarter-final.
