Thanks to Director of Squash Damon Leedale-Brown for this summary ...
Boys Varsity Squash
Seeded #2 in Division 2, the boys cruised through their 8am match against Haverford JV and then prepared for what looked to be a tough encounter against GFS in the semi-finals of the Division. The match did not disappoint – important wins in the first rotation of matches by Max Lubowitz at 3, Nick Case at 5 and Tom Bradbeer at 9 – Rohan Bhambhani losing out in four games at the #7 position. With a 3-1 lead, we went into the second rotation of matches – Soren Heinz kicking things of with a quick 3-0 win at #8 to put us within one match of the win. Senior Reid Kleinman clinched the match with a 3-0 win against an opponent he had lost to by the same scoreline in regular season.  Ben Swanson was our final winner of the day, battling back from a 2-0 deficit, and Marker Angelakis put in a notable performance at #2, losing out in a fantastic five-game match.

The final and third match of the day against the SCH Varsity B team proved to be one match too far for our boys – our only wins coming at #4 from Reid Kleinman and #2 from Marker Angelakis, who dug deep to grind out a 13-11 fifth game victory.  A 7-2 loss to SCH, but all round a good day of squash.

Girls Varsity Squash
Our girls were in the top division for MASA and faced a tough first-round proposition against the #1 seeds and defending MASA Champs, Baldwin. A good learning experience for our girls against many of the top junior players in the country, and highlight of the match was the five-game win for Elisabeth Ross at #1 against a player she has lost out to on their three previous encounters.
Our second match was against SCH, which proved to be a little too strong for us on the day. Convincing win for Elisabeth Ross at #1 and an excellent four-game win for Meredith Bernstein at #8. Lexie Kaiser at #9 battled hard, going down in five games, and both Gwen Davis and Hatti Specter put up a good fight at #2 and #4 strings, taking their opponents to four games. Final match was against HLM and the girls finished the day with a strong 6-3 win to secure a seventh place finish at MASA.
