Captain of the Westlake Girls Premier Squash team, Lucy Cadness-Aspinall, was rewarded for a strong performance at the New Zealand Secondary Schools with selection to the New Zealand Secondary Schools Squash Team. The Year 12 student led the 6-person team against some of the best juniors in the country and had a strong start to the tournament with a 5-0 win against Sacred Heart from New Plymouth. In the second round, the team faced 2nd seeds, Whangarei Girls and after a tussle, they went down narrowly to them, 2 -3 in the afternoon. The next day, Hamilton Girls was too strong for Westlake, winning 1-4 but they bounced back to beat the coasters, Greymouth High School, 3-2. On the final day, Westlake met Tauranga Girls in the play off for 5th and 6th and once again, narrowly lost, 2-3. Westlake’s second seed, Aishah Lotfy had a successful tournament winning all her games. The event was won by Otumoetai College. Cadness-Aspinall is now readying herself for the New Zealand Secondary Schools Team and the Trans-Tasman series in Sydney from 21 – 25 August.
