Brisbane’s Jessica Turnbull will lead the Australian team to the World Junior Women’s Teams Championships in Wroclaw, Poland from July 16-27.
Turnbull, 17, played at the previous two Junior World Championships as an individual, but was not part of the last teams’ event in Boston in 2011.
She is a three-time Australian age champion and recently took out the Australian Junior Open in Sydney.
Turnbull is joined in the team by Caloundra’s Grace McErvale, Natalie Newton from Laidley in Queensland and Melbourne’s Nicole Stoneham. Grafton’s Moana Gray is the non-travelling reserve.
McErvale finished runner-up to Turnbull at the AJO, while Newton won the Australian Junior Championships in Melbourne last September.
“All the girls in our talent squad should be congratulated for their hard work over the past two years,” Squash Australia CEO Gary O’Donnell said.
“I’m sure that the four who were selected will perform well and do Australia proud in Poland. We wish them well.”
