Stafford battles into Caribbean Championships squash final

Cayman’s only pro squash player, Cameron Stafford, battled through to the final of the men’s Caribbean Championships.  

Stafford, 23, played Jamaica’s Chris Binnie on Tuesday night at the South Sound Squash Club.  

Binnie, 26, was seeded No. 1 at the start of the tournament on Sunday and beat Guyana’s Sunil Seth to reach the final.  

Stafford, the No. 3. seed, beat Lewis Walters, the No. 2, in four games on Monday to reach the final.  

In the women’s tournament, only Jackie Geils and Claire Roscoe were left in the individual competition on Tuesday, in the consolation tournament.  

In the women’s main draw top seed Karen Meakins of Barbados and No. 2 seed Runa Reta of Bermuda reached Tuesday’s quarterfinals.  

The tournament runs until Sunday. Chief organizer Mark Chaloner said, “Sunday was a logistical nightmare because we had to organize 100 matches on six courts. Thankfully, it all went well and there were no serious hiccups.”  

He added that the tournament is running smoothly and there is a good atmosphere between the players and countries.
