Brandon’s Alex Murray will play for gold today at the Canadian junior racquetball championships in Grande Prairie, Alta.
Murray had Wednesday off in the girls’ under-16 singles division and will take on Jewel Sauve from L’Assomption, Que., for the title today. Sauve improved to 1-0 in the three-player event with a 15-5, 15-0 win over Jessica Leduc (0-2), who’s also from Quebec.
Meanwhile, Murray and fellow Brandonite Milana Paddock will fight for their medal hopes in the girls’ doubles event today. The duo fell 15-3, 15-2 to top seeds Danielle Drury and Michele Morissette (3-0) on Wednesday to drop to 1-2 in the six-team round robin. Things won’t be much easier today as the Brandonites take on second seeds Alexis Iwaasa and McKenzie Brayley (3-0).
Wednesday proved to be a tough day for Paddock, who dropped to 0-2 in the girls’ under-18 singles competition with a 15-1, 15-0 loss to Morissette, who is the top seed. She’ll take on Drury today.
In the boys’ 12-and-under singles draw, Brandonite Reid Sorotsky defeated Naman Gauri of Lethbridge, Alta., 15-6, 15-6 to finish third in his qualifying pool at 1-2. His record put Sorotsky in the consolation playoffs, which he begins today against Alberta’s Kai Reum.
