MERION STATION, PA. > SQUASH
McGuinness, a freshman at the U.S. Naval Academy, teamed with B.G. Lemmon (Villanova, Pa.) to become the first player to win four men's under-19 national titles at the U.S. junior doubles championships in Wilmington, Del. The duo swept the final 15--12, 15--9, 15--8. He also partnered with Olivia Feichter (Philadelphia) to win a third-consecutive U-19 mixed doubles title. Last year he captained Episcopal Academy to its third straight national high school title.

Sydney, a 5'8" eighth-grade point guard on the high school varsity at Upper Room Christian, scored 63 points in a 78--17 win over Our Savior New American to break the Long Island girls' single-game scoring record of 60, set in 1973. She also had 13 rebounds, 11 steals and two assists. The only eighth-grader on the Royals, Sydney was averaging 41.7 points through Sunday. Last summer she earned MVP honors in the Golden Hoops Classic at Harlem's Rucker Park.
