2011 Teams : Egyptian Girls take title in Boston

Finals day of the Women’s World Junior Championship 2011, and what better conclusion than to see hosts USA in their first-ever World Squash Team Final against the five-time finalists and two-time defending champions Egypt.

Harvard’s Murr Centre was buzzing with excitement this afternoon, but before that we had seven playoff matches to determine the finishing order from third to sixteenth.

Hong Kong can be well pleased with their third place, Wales made the top eight for the first time, and Guyana won the matchup with Ecuador to see which debutant would finish higher.
