After a grueling team trial this past weekend in Montreal, Andrew Schnell emerged as one of three athletes selected to the squad which will represent Canada at the 2017 Men's Team World Squash Championships in Marseille, Fra. November 26 - December 3 2017. Schnell finished second at the trial, dropping his only match to former Canadian Champion Shawn De Lierre by the narrowest of margins; 10-12 in the fifth.
Schnell, De Lierre, and Mike McCue, who also qualified at the team trial over the weekend, will join Nick Sachvie on the squad, who qualified automatically following his National Championship run last season. Unfortunately Alberta's other athlete in the trial, Graeme Schnell, did not qualify for the squad.
