Grace Lodge took home first place in the U.S. Junior Squash Championship in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend. The Darien native, who is ranked No. 1 for U11 girls in the country, won the final after overcoming a two-set deficit in the middle of the match. — an announcement from Chelsea Piers Connecticut

In addition to her after-school clinics, Grace takes private lessons two to three times per week with her coach Arturo Baretto, as a part of our Elite Squash Program. Baretto credits her strong work ethic and positive outlook for her success,

“I am just happy that all of the work that Grace has been putting in showed up in the final,” Baretto said. “She overcame a mental hurdle in the middle of the match that made the difference between winning and losing.”

Grace started playing squash when she was just six.
