It is my honor to report that some of HKFC’s younger players have shown superior performance in the Intercollegiate Squash Team Competition.

 

We had players from different divisions competing in the men's and women's event. The HKFC youngsters won trophies galore for their respective university and colleges.  

 

The team game had the Men’s event which was the Best of 5 rubbers and the Women’s event which was the Best of 3 rubbers

Haywood Lau (HKFC 2B) and Gary Lam (HKFC 6) of HK University won their bronze medal match 3-1 against Chinese University HK in which Robinson Law, the former Hong Kong Junior Open champion, played position 1 for the team.

In another pool, HK Baptist University (HKBU), the dark horse and bronze medalist last year were ably led by Wilson Chan (HKFC 3B) this year. This university team was the giant killer of the competition, first beating EduHK and CUHK, then seeing off last year’s runner-up PolyU in the last pool match. HKBU went on and dethroned HKU 3-0 convincingly in the semifinal and reached the final.

At the last day of the tournament, HKBU played City University led by Jeff Leung (HKFC 8B) in the final, which was a repeat of the semifinal of last year. Both teams were unbeaten on the way through to the final. Jeff who was a reserve player in the final, led his fellow teammates to beat HKBU 3-0 with the presence of Hong Kong National Team member Wong Chi Him playing in their no.1 spot.

In the women’s event, Gemma Sung (HKFC L2B) won a bronze medal to follow in the footsteps of the HKU men's team where she overcame her opponent from HKUST in her match.

Another great victory was by Yurisa Yeung (HKFC L2C) of Poly U who triumphed in the women's final. PolyU beat CityU 2-1 in which Ho Tze Lok, the world ranked top 50 played in the team. The result saw PolyU successfully winning the 6th consecutive title in this event.

 

Thank you Himmy Yeung (HKFC 10), the PolyU graduate and former player for cheering for us. Special thanks to the siblings Nam Chan (HKFC 6) and Niki Chan (HKFC L2B) for being part of the officials to make the tournament successful.

 

What you can do to make your college life memorable? Definitely winning the Intercollegiate Cup! Most importantly, it makes the football club proud that we have so many successful juniors.
