Jack Webber defends title at Chilliwack Squash Championships

Chilliwack’s top squash players squared off last week at the Landing Leisure Centre.

Jack Webber won his second straight Chilliwack squash championship last week, out-dueling Thomas Monteith in the men’s A division final.

Titles were determined in five men’s divisions and one women’s division at the Cheam Leisure Centre.

Forty men filled out the men’s draw and Webber was the best, turning aside a strong challenge from first-time finalist Monteith to win 3-1.

Steve Hood claimed the men’s B division championship with a 3-1 win over Chad Mowat and Mel Kaario downed Darren McDonald 3-1 for the men’s C division crown.

The men’s D division title went to Dave Jelinski, who topped Jimmie Jayes 3-1, and the men’s E division title went to Nick Baer with a 3-0 triumph over Adam Forcier.

Six athletes competed in the women’s division and Katalyn Waine emerged victorious with a 3-0 win over Lainy Jagusch.

The event also included an exhibition match featuring local pro Shawn Zwierzchowski, ranked No. 24 in B.C., taking on No. 21 ranked Zachary Leman from Vancouver’s Jericho Tennis Club.

Zwierzchowski defeated Leman 3-1.
