Cullen finishes 9th at Manitoba Open

Brandon’s Kurtis Cullen finished in ninth place at the Manitoba Open racquetball tournament in Winnipeg on the weekend, which was the first national team selection event of the season.

Cullen, ranked 12th in Canada, bounced back from losing his first men’s open singles match of the event earlier in the week to Saskatoon’s Lee Connell by taking his final two. He defeated Saskatoon’s Joshua Keil 15-1, 15-6 in the ninth-place match.

Fellow Brandonite Cameron Wachs placed 18th after posting a 1-1 record in the Red Division round robin. His victory was a 15-7, 15-11 decision over Winnipeg’s Dennis Oteyza.

Wachs didn’t leave Winnipeg empty-handed as he teamed up with fellow Brandonite Connor Madill and won the doubles open crown. The pair capped their championship run with a 15-9, 13-15, 11-7 win over Winnipeg’s Darryl Drohomerski and Lyle Philpott.

Brandon’s Pat Madill, Connor’s father, and East St. Paul’s Kirby Shwaykosky won the bronze-medal match 15-6, 9-15, 11-5 over Winnipeg’s Dave Boyd and Len Gerelus.

In the women’s singles A/B event, Brandon’s Alexandra Murray reached the semifinals before falling 15-10, 15-6 to Regina’s Susan Dauk.

Fellow Brandonite Milana Paddock reached the consolation final before falling 15-9, 15-3 to Winnipeg’s Roberta Mack.

In women’s doubles A/B, Murray and Paddock went 2-1 in the round robin event to place in a three-way tie for first, but they were awarded second based on game differential.

Brandon’s Reid Sorotsky placed sixth in the junior singles B event. He fell 15-8, 7-15, 11-4 to Winnipeg’s Zachary Johnson in the consolation final.
