Two Georgia players are returning from the USA Racquetball Junior Olympic Championships with medals!

The USAR JOC took place in Fridley, Minnesota from June 22 thru June 26, 2016.  Over 200 players aged 18 and under gathered and played in Olympic format divisions in order to determine placement on the USA Racquetball Junior National Team for the next year.

Marina and Emma Kernan (left to right in the picture) took home medals in each division they entered.

The pride and respect of the Georgia racquetball community goes out to these two positive young ladies!
