The team at East Coast Squash Academy would like to congratulate Maggie Goodman on her recent success at the Australian Junior Championships. Maggie and her brother Sam have both been working with Head Coach Aaron Frankcomb over the past year in the lead up to this event. Maggie seeded number four in the U15 girls event, defeated number two seed Ella Burge in four games to take the title (9-11, 11-3, 11-4, 11-9). Sam (seeded 27th) on the other hand, began the event by toppling the 15th seed in the first round which allowed him to finish in a top 16 position. This was a fantastic result for both Goodman's which is a testimony to their dedication and effort to training throughout the year! Well done guys!
