Bendigo International PSA

Days 1-2 After a long travel day composed of three flights, a bus & a train, I arrived in Bendigo, Australia.

Squash Career Since Cornell

After graduation in May, I flew home for a day and then went straight to Yellowknife for an exhibition tournament with Nikki Todd, Melina Turk, and Jackie Moss.

After the exhibition in Windsor
