Fundraiser helps Vernon squash player

William Rutter, 15, is one of the top age-group players in B.C., and is off to a tourney in the U.S.

A two-hour fundraiser goes Friday to help send one of B.C.’s top squash players to a camp and tournament in San Franciso.

The Roster Sports Club in Vernon will host the fundraiser for William Rutter, 15, a student at Vernon’s W.L. Seaton Secondary and one of the best players in his age group in the province.

“Gus Morris, owner of the Roster, and myself will be donating money and doing a squash clinic fundraiser to help send William to this event in the U.S.,” said Adam Terheege, Rutter’s coach and head coach at the Interior Squash Academy, which Rutter also attends.
