While the world’s best squash players competed on the glass court this past weekend, two hundred and eighty-eight U.S. juniors participated in the Arlen Specter Pennsylvania JCT at Drexel and Penn.
The tournament is named after Arlen Specter who was a senator from Pennsylvania for thirty years. Specter was an avid squash player who played almost every day. After his death in October 2012, the JCT in his hometown was renamed in his honor.
The JCT’s are a marquee circuit of junior events of which the Arlen Specter is the second of five over the course of the 2017-2018 season.
The JCT is the pinnacle of junior squash in America and provides important rankings points that determine seeding leading into the U.S. Junior Championships in March.
