Coffs squash player shows skill

COFFS Harbour squash player Tamika Saxby has come agonisingly close to beating one of the best junior players in the world.

The Woolgoolga High student was competing in the World Junior Women’s Squash Championship in Cologne where she was facing seventh seeded Egyptian Nouran El Torky in the round of 16.

Saxby showed the great strides she has made in recent months to be on the precipice of advancing to the quarter finals.

Twice the local led during the match only for the classy Egyptian to fight back to level terms and eventually claim the match in five games 7-11, 17-15, 7-11, 11-5, 11-3.
