Bronxville High School senior Rustin Wiser has earned the U.S. Junior National Champion title after competing at the Arlen Specter U.S. Squash Center in Philadelphia from March 15-17. He competed in the boys under 19 age group, which is the oldest junior age group, as the No. 3 seed.

“It’s amazing. I can’t really describe it,” Wiser said. “I worked so hard for this and I’m glad it paid off. This weekend went the best way it possibly could. I just went out and played and it went my way. I’m just super ecstatic. It’s been an amazing junior squash career for me. I just went out there and had fun. There were plenty of ups and downs, but this is a good way to end it.”

Wiser outperformed Zane Patel, a No. 2 seed from California, in the semifinals in four games, followed by a 3-0 win over Alex Dartnell from Florida in the finals of the championship.

“The U.S. Junior Nationals is the most prestigious and competitive national squash tournament,” said Supreet Singh, who is Wiser’s coach and director of squash at the Bronxville Field Club.

As a result of Wiser’s stellar performance at the event, he qualified for the World Junior Squash Championships, which will be held in July in Houston. He will represent the United States as a member of the Junior Nationals Team.
