Squarefour would like to issue an official thank you to Peter Lowell, the head honcho at the Lakes Environmental Association in Bridgton, ME, who dreamed up the Four Square World Championships so many years ago. It's clear that without his initiative and hard work that the Champs would never have gotten off the ground nor would they have grown into such an excellent event.
Chris Glasser was awarded the Men's Four Square World Championship title on Feb 28, 2009. This is the first time in the five year history of the world champs that the men's title has come home to the Boston area. Chris, currently from Somerville, MA, yet clearly holding some affiliation with Louisville, is pictured here with his towering golden trophy.
Justine Petrillo of Cambridge, MA, returned home with yet another Four Square World Championship title. This makes Justine a three time champion, setting the record for both cumulative and consecutive women's world champ awards.
The rumor has just been confirmed that Dana Ostberg, the world's first and second women's world champion of four square will be returning to Bridgton, ME, on Feb 28, 2009, for another shot at the title. Ostberg, now hailing from Baltimore, MD, took home both the 2005 and 2006 women's title in the two first years of the world championships and has been rivaled by only Justine Petrillo of Cambridge, MA, who holds the women's titles from 2007 and 2008.
Please leave your gasoline at home because we anticipate some sparks.
