ONCOCARE National Junior Championships 2024

Three-peat for Ong Zhe Sim and a first for Ethan Kuan

Ong Zhe Sim and Ethan Kuan were crowned National Junior Champions after the duo triumphed convincingly in the finals of the Under-19 main events of the ONCOCARE National Junior Championships 2024. The pair also made it a double when they clinched the Under-17 events.

The win marked a third consecutive title for Zhe Sim, who still has two years to play in the age group. The Methodist Girls School student had earlier came back from two games down in her semi-final match en route to the final.

For Ethan, it was his first main event title. The Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) student  did this in style, never dropping a single game along the way. At just 15 years of age, he is set to win more than one.

In the younger age groups,  Naisha and Rehaan Singh made it a family double when they clinched the Under-15 titles. Naisha was seeded to win, while Rehaan showed great maturity in his final match to upset the top seed.

Another pair of siblings also triumphed – Jackrish and Kareena Sashikumar clinched the Boys Under-13 and Girls Under-11 titles. The pair were clearly a class above their counterparts, both winning in convincing fashion.

In the remainder categories, Kaelen Evan Low bagged the Boys Under-11 and Jacintha Han the Girls Under-13.

The finals was attended by Dr. Tay Miah Hiang of title partner ONCOCARE Cancer Centre and SSRA Vice-President Dr. Tan Ming Jen.

The event closed with Dr. Tay pledging his continued support to SSRA’s efforts in developing junior squash, with a $35,000 mock cheque presentation.

Thank you Dr. Tay and ONCOCARE Cancer Centre from all of us at Singapore Squash!
