The U.S. men’s team earned two bronze medals–individual and doubles–and will aim for Team gold as the two seeds at the Pan American Championships in Guatemala.
The U.S. delegation consists of Faraz Khan, Spencer Lovejoy, Timmy Brownell and Chris Gordon and is led by Ganek Family US Squash Head National Coach Ong Beng Hee.
In the individual event, it was Khan who earned the first medal for the U.S. The American entered the draw as the top seed and reached the semifinal with three 3-0 wins to set up an encounter with Colombia’s 3/4 seed Juan Vargas. Vargas pulled off the upset to consign Khan to a bronze medal.
Spencer Lovejoy and Timmy Brownell partnered to lead the doubles draw as the top seeds. The Americans sustained a semifinal upset however against Peru’s 3/4 seeds to collect a second bronze medal.
The team competition closes out the tournament April 7-9, with the U.S. set to face hosts Guatemala in the semifinals Friday night, April 8, and a potential final against either top seeds Argentina or 3/4 seeds Colombia in the finals Saturday, April 9.
