4:04 pm on 12 June 2011

The New Zealand junior squash player Megan Craig has won her second successive title in as many weeks in Malaysia.

The 18-year-old from Marlborough beat Malaysia's Tan Yan Xin who has already been ranked inside the world top 70 professional players 11-3 11-5 9-11 11-5 in the under 19 final of the Penang Junior Open in Malaysia.

The win holds Craig in good stead to be selected as the top player for the New Zealand junior team as it heads to the world junior championships in Boston next month.

The side is named after the Auckland juniors later this month.
