INFINITUM Squash wishes to congratulate INFINITUM Junior Academy players, Noah Goel and Max Crowe on a successful weekend of tournament play.

After strong showings in this season's JCT's and a 9-12 finish in the US Junior Squash Championships (Closed), Noah won the Boys U11 draw of the St. Louis Junior Gold this weekend. Seeded #1, Noah didn't drop a single game on the way to claiming his first Junior Gold event.

Congratulations, Noah!

Noah joined INFINITUM Squash's junior program ranked #18 in the US in the Boys U11 category. Since beginning with Coach Nick Taylor, Noah has continuously put in a huge effort in practice. Hard work has paid off and within four months under Nick's guidance, Noah had placed himself firmly in the top 10 in the country, securing a Junior National Squads invitation this summer - an honor reserved for the top six seeds in the country.

INFINITUM Squash Junior Academy player, Max Crowe has also been training with Coach Nick Taylor since INFINITUM opened in September. With hard work, his fitness and technique have steadily improved and this weekend, Max battled through the middle of the draw, including a five-game semifinal, to surpass his seeding and reach the finals of the Boys U13 flight of the Life Time Boston West Junior Bronze tournament in Framingham. In the final, Max courageously shook off a second game 11-0 loss to take the third in the tie-break but was ultimately unable to convert the fourth. An amazing effort. Congrats, Max! We can't wait for your next big result.
