HOUSTON – Four incoming Virginia squash players will be competing at the 2024 WSF World Junior Squash Championships, being held July 12-23 at the Houston Squash Club in Houston, Texas.

Nathan Rosenzweig, Ewan Harris and Juan Jose Torres competed in Boy’s U19 while Maria Min will play in Girls’ U19.

The individual tournament runs from July 12-17 with the team event running July 18-23.

In the individual tournament, Torres, who was a 3/4 seed, won three matches to advance to the Round of 16 before falling against Harith Danial Jefri. Both Harris and Rosenzweig won their opening matches before falling in the Round of 64. They both won matches in the consolation draw.

Min was upset in her opening match against Valerie Huang , falling 3-2, but then stormed through the consolation draw, making it to the consolation final before falling 3-1 against Doyce Ye San Lee on Wednesday morning. Both players were 17-32 seeds upset in their first-round matches.
