Westlake Girls win Silver at Auckland Secondary School Squash Champs

Lead by New Zealand Secondary Schools Squash representative, Lucy Cadness-Aspinall, the Westlake Girls Team met local school Takapuna Grammar in the final of the Auckland Secondary Schools Squash Teams Championship at Epsom Eden Squash Club on Tuesday.  Westlake Girls swept through their first-round opposition from Epsom Girls winning all five matches before beating Macleans College in a similar fashion, 4-1 to round out the pool play.  Fifth seed, Anais-Lily Monsellier suffered a setback with an ankle injury in her match and struggled to overcome her opposition.  In the final, Westlake Girls dug deep against Takapuna Grammar, with second seed, Aishah Lotfy, collecting the school’s only win, with a brilliant come back from 2-0 down to win her match in five sets.  The Tyler Duberly coached team, a former student of Westlake Girls herself, is now readying the team for the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championship which will be held in Auckland from 4-6 August.
