Professional Athlete Award
Born Sept 9, 1966 in Quebec, moved with his family
to Sarnia and attended Northern.
After having been exposed to squash by his parents Lewis
and Janet at the age of 12, Gary became part of a
burgeoning junior squash movement in the area inundating
courts at Pinsonneault’s and the Sarnia Riding Club for
years to come. Gary garnered more titles than any other
junior squash player in the history of Canadian squash.
He would continue this trend into the professional ranks
to become one of the most decorated professional squash
players in the history of the game worldwide. In 1993,
while attending Harvard University, Gary could lay claim
to being the #1 hardball singles player, #2 hardball
doubles player and #12 softball singles player in the
World...a feat in combined rankings not achieved by any
player in the history of any of the three disciplines.
