_CMP2772From Squash Canada:

The Canadian squash team brought home two medals today at the Maccabi Games in Israel. Canada won silver in the open team category and bronze in junior teams.

The junior team of Albert Shoihet, David Levine, and Joel Seider had a shot at the silver medal but fell short in their match against Team USA and had to settle for the bronze. The open team of Ethan Shoihet, Lucas Sheiner, and Jackson Rubinoff also played the Americans in the silver medal match, but they were able to flip the script and claim the silver medal with a 2-1 match victory.
