The Canada Winter Games in Red Deer Alberta are only one week away. The squash competition however, will begin on February 24th, with squash being in week two of the games. The boys team lead by 2nd time CWG participant Alex Kirbyson, is seeded fourth in the team event and hoping to reach or exceed their seeding and hopefully bring home a medal. The girls team is captained by Dorothy Hargraves, one of three Hargraves sisters competing for the Mb squash team. They are seeded 7th for the event and will undoubtedly be the youngest team there, with all four girls having a chance at a second Canada Winter Games four years from now.
