KINGSTON, Jamaica – It was a sibling success story as the All Jamaica Junior Squash Championships wrapped up over the weekend at the Liguanea Club in Kingston with Lucas and Savannah Thomson as well as Tobias and Sebastian Levy winning age group titles.

Under pressure to retain his Under-15 Boys title, Tobias Levy dug deep to fight off a serious challenge from the improving Rhys Greenland. Levy went the distance to post an 11/8, 4/11, 11/8, 7/11, 11/7 win to keep his new rival at bay and claim his 6th national title.

Conversely, the challenge facing older sibling Sebastian Levy was to retake a junior national title after losing in the final last year. The former Under-15 Champion overpowered Alexander Desnoes 14/12, 14/12, 11/3 to once again lift an All Jamaica trophy.

The in-form Lukas Thomson, who won both the national and regional Under-13 titles last year, maintained his dominance despite moving into a higher age group. The promising youngster beat Lek Drummond 11/3, 11/2, 11/0 to claim his first Under-13 crown.

Similar progress was made by Savannah Thomson who was All Jamaica and Caribbean Under-13 girls champion in 2018. Thomson beat Mia Todd 12/10, 11/7, 7/11, 11/4 to win the Under-15/17 age category.

The Under-13 Girls title went to Eleanor Hind who beat former Under-11 Champion, Mehar Trehan 11/2, 12/10, 11/4. While Karan Dhiman took the Boys Under-19 title in a round robin contest which culminated with him beating his namesake, Karan Chatani 11/9, 11/1, 11/2 .

The award for Sportsmanship went to Emily Vaz.

“This is the premier event for our junior players and a lot was on the line but we saw the youngsters really rising to the challenge and dealing well with the pressures of a national championship which will serve them well as they prepare for the regional championships which will take place this summer,” said President of the Jamaica Squash Association, Chris Hind.
