Rosemont Ridge sixth-grader places first in age group at Oregon Junior Racquetball Association state championships

Daryl Wainwright, a sixth-grader at Rosemont Ridge Middle School, won first place in the 12-and-under singles group at the Oregon Junior Racquetball Association state championships last month at the Eastside Athletic Club in Milwaukie. He also finished second in boys beginner doubles.

Daryl, 12, started playing when he was 6, practicing two to three times a week at the Multnomah Athletic Club. His parents, Bill and Liz Wainwright, met through racquetball -- Bill played racquetball and Liz played squash at the same club in Vancouver, B.C., said Liz Wainwright. Brother Billy, 20, started racquetball when he was 8 and was playing in adult leagues by age 12.

Daryl's past honors include first place in the 2009 mixed beginner doubles and two first-place finishes in the 2007 state championships.

Says Daryl about this year's win: "I was happy that I won. It's fun to play. I love racquetball. I don't care if I win or lose but it's fun to win."
Congratulations Daryl !!!
