Warwick squash stars

SQUASH: Warwick pair Jason Anderson and Caleb Johnson played in the Darling Downs under-19 boys squash team which was runners-up in the state championships at Acacia Ridge in Brisbane.

Darling Downs was second behind Metropolitan North.

Warwick State High School student Jason Anderson played for Darling Downs for the fifth time, his second time in the U19 side.

He has won his pool finals in the past two years, pool C last year and pool B2 this year.

Jason won six of his seven games at the championships.

He has played squash since the age of eight and believes his game is still improving.

"I plan to continue squash after I finish year this year, definitely."

Caleb Johnson, who attends The School of Total Education (SOTE), played for Darling Downs for the third time and had three wins and four losses at the championships playing in pool A.

"My best win was against Nik Laver from Capricornia," he said.

Caleb won 3-0 on games to make the state team for the third time.

SOTE students Sebastian Johnson and Cameron Darton were part of the Darling Downs U15 team which finished fourth overall.

Sebastian played for Darling Downs for the second time and won four of his seven matches at the championships.

"It was a really good experience again to play at the state championships," he said.

"I have improved a lot since last year."

It was the first time Cameron played for Darling Downs and he won six of his seven games in the championships.

All four Southern Downs players in the regional teams play senior fixture squash in Warwick.

Warwick Rose Squash Club finals will be played tomorrow night at St Mary's Squash Courts.
