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."
