Antoinette claims national title

Antoinette Ramsey, now in her fourth year at Racquet Up, won the Bronze Junior National Championship on Sunday, April 30th.

Antoinette faced strong competition in the three-day event in Stamford, Connecticut, hosted by US Squash, but finished undefeated to become the first Racquet Up student to claim a national title.

Currently ranked #92 in the country for U15s, Ramsey is also a member of a national High Performance Team established by the National Urban Squash and Education Association (NUSEA), and was one of six Racquet Up students to compete in the Bronze Nationals over the weekend.

Derek Aguirre, Executive Director of Racquet Up Detroit said: “This is a significant achievement for Antoinette, and for the sport of squash in Detroit. Years of dedication and hard work are paying off, not just for Antoinette but for many of our students, who frequently represent Detroit across the country. Such success reminds us that if we create opportunities for our young people, they can achieve great things. We are excited to support our students to continue their success both on the squash court and in the classroom, as we aim to help them realize their potential.”
