The top performer from Windsor was Mark Eugeni, who successfully defended his Hardball Championship by beating Rob Graves of Michigan 3-0 in the final. With this win, Mark continues his lifetime-undefeated streak in Hardball!
Another notable match featured our own Dan McLatcher. Dan is a true fan of the game of Squash and has a great respect for its history. Dan was competing in the age division and had the great fortune to draw Gul Khan along the way. Khan is a former world champion and member of the famous Khan family, which dominated Squash for so many years. Dan did not take down the champ, but did relish the opportunity to be on court with him. Read more about the Khan Family here.
