Squash Champs Results for Friday


Varsity squash competed Friday in the National High School Championships with PC's teams going 1-2 overall.

The boys, competing in the Division II portion of the tournament, opened in the morning with a 5-2 win over Phillips Exeter Academy, of Exeter, New Hampshire, before returning to action in the evening and falling to Conestoga, 5-2. Those matches were played at PC.

The girls traveled to Philadelphia Cricket Club, in Chestnut Hill, for a late-afternoon Division I match and were swept by Noble and Greenough, of Dedham, Massachusetts, 7-0.

All five triumphs in the boys' win were claimed by 3-2 scores. Those winners, with the fifth-game score in parenthesis, were Tate Miller (11-1), Tommy Fournais (11-3), Marker Angelakis (11-8), Reid Kleinman (11-6) and Max Lubovitz (11-9).

Miller also won by 3-2 vs. Conestoga, thanks to 11-5 dominance in Game No. 5, while Marco Rodriguez pulled off a 3-0 sweep.

For the girls, only ninth-grader Elisabeth Ross, recently named the No. 1 U17 player in the country (she's just 14 years old), managed to avoid a sweep.

After falling into a 2-0 hole, "E" (shown above, center) slapped together a terrific rally against a highly-rated U19 player, Grace Doyle. She won the third and fourth games and entertained the spectators by getting involved in ties at 4-4, 5-5, 6-6, 7-7, 8-8 and 9-9 in Game No. 5 before dropping an 11-9 decision.

Fifteen minutes after it ended, people could still be heard discussing the match and saying how much they enjoyed it.
