Team USA’s Caroline Fouts and Spencer Lovejoy will compete in the 2024 PSA World Championships in Cairo, Egypt, May 9-18, after winning the Pan American Qualifying events, Sunday, April 21, at Play Squash Academy in Columbia, Maryland.

Fouts, world No. 62, will return for her second World Championships appearance on the world’s biggest stage after making her debut in Chicago last year, while Lovejoy, world No. 66, will make his maiden appearance on the world’s biggest stage.

Both Fouts and Lovejoy entered the $5,000 PSA Challenger event as the top seeds alongside fifteen other players from the Pan American region. Fouts made a perfect title run without dropping a game, including a semifinal win over U.S. teammate Riya Navani in the semifinals and Mexico’s Sarahi Lopez in the final.

Lovejoy dropped just one game all tournament and finished with a flourish against two top-100-ranked players in the semifinals and finals. Lovejoy defeated Argentina’s world No. 86 Jeremias Azana in the semifinals, and Guatemala’s Alejandro Enriquez in the final.

Fouts and Lovejoy join eight other Americans in the PSA World Championships draw who qualified on ranking, including Olivia Fiechter, Sabrina Sobhy, Marina Stefanoni, Timmy Brownell, Shahjahan Khan, Andrew Douglas, Todd Harrity and Faraz Khan.
