Diva Results 

The 2010 Diva is now in the history books - another great job by Kelly MacWilliams and Shara Cody -well done girls!

Overall, the calibre of play was exceptional, with hard-fought matches in every division.

  • In the Newbie division - Hannah O'Brien pulls out the championship win in her first tournament with a victory over Angus-Mom Marlene MacInnis - Marlene even "took one in the ear" in her effort to pull out the victory - a very close match
  • Chrissie Terry closes the door on Laura Ready in the Newbie consolation final and takes some hardware back to Halifax
  • In the B/C Final, Sam Lawther and Eli McKenna battle it out again for the final - and once again Sam comes out on top!
  • In the B/C Consolation final, Rhonda MacLean pulls out the win, after a "very long day" of matches, beating Kathy Lanthois in five - great effort ladies!
  • In the A division final it was our reigning champion Mary Andrews, pulling out the victory in a hotly-contested 5-game battle with a tough Jane Hicks - what a match to finish the day !!!! 
  • Also a great 5 game battle in A consolation between Moncton's champ Darlene Acton and Emily Terry of Halifax.  Darlene pulls it off, after a great series of rallies featuring lots of hard-hitting drives - super match girls.

The day finished up with the presentation of awards, and for some ... a sleepover at the Jinks residence!

Lots of fun, great squash, tasty food, and some creative signage from the boys made the tourney a success - congratulations to all participants - see you next year.  Check out the Photo Gallery in the right side panel for pictures of the event.
