Girls and Boys Squash Play at Nationals

Penn Charter's girls squash team was proud to be placed in the top-level portion, The Patterson Cup, of the U.S. National Championships, held at seven sites (including PC) this past weekend in Philly and the suburbs.

Understandably, the challenges were many and the Quakers wound up posting a 1-3 record.

Friday, they fell to Deerfield Academy (MA), 5-2, in the Round of 16, then defeated Hotchkiss (CT), 4-3, in the first of the consolations. They lost to Greenwich Academy B (CT), 6-1, on Saturday and to Pingry (NJ), 4-3, on Sunday.

Overall, they placed 12th out of 80 teams.

Elisabeth Ross Penn Charter SquashJunior Elisabeth Ross, like always, was a whirlwind. Playing in the No. 1 slot, she triumphed in all four of her matches and posted three shutouts while remaining unbeaten this season. Against Deerfield, she stormed back from a 2-1 deficit to win the last two games by identical 11-2 scores.

Juniors Hatti Specter/Mia Bezar won two matches. Seniors Gwen Davis/Charlotte Murray won one.

The boys, who were placed in the second of seven tiers, also went 1-3.

Their win came against Phillips Exeter Academy (NH) by a 6-1 count. They lost to Westminster (GA) and Andover (MA) by 6-1 scores and to Tabor Academy (MA), 4-3.

Senior Marker Angelakis led the win parade with three. Eighth graders Philip Hyun Su Price and Oliver Leedale-Brown were next with two apiece. These guys won once: senior Marco Rodriguez, freshman Ryan Yeatman, junior Rohan Bhambhani and junior Tom Bradbeer.

The boys finished No. 29 among 110 teams.
