SATURDAY WRAPUP
[Men's Draw]   [Women's Draw]
The Yale seniors Michelle Quibell and Julian Illingworth both made it to the finals with upset wins.  Michelle won hers over Meredeth Quick in 5 and Julian won his over Meredeth's brother Preston Quick in 4.

In Saturday's final, Latasha Khan, the US # Seattle, continued her dominance of women's US squash with yet another championship, this time defeating Michell Quibell on her home courts.

Defending Champion Julian Illingworth now faces muliple US-title winner Damian Walker. When Illingworth won the title last year, Walker was injured and not in the hunt, so this time will be Illingworth's chance to stake his clear claim to US #1 on his home courts.
