Tuesday Terrific for Squash, Tough for BKB

In the indoor racquet sport, there's nothing like squashing the opposition.

Penn Charter did exactly that Tuesday in the Mid-Atlantic Squash Association Tournament.

The girls snuffed nearby Germantown Friends, 7-2, to conclude their season with a sixth place finish in MASA while the boys dominated St. Andrew's (DE), 8-1, to set up Wednesday's Division 2 final vs. SCH Academy B.

Junior Elisabeth Ross powered the girls with a 3-0 win that enabled her to finish the season, as coach Damon Leedale-Brown described it, with a perfect record "across all competitions, including Nationals."

Also impressive was freshman Nezzie Alexanian, who surrendered just five points in her win. Junior Hatti Specter and senior Charlotte Murray won in three games. Junior Mia Bezar, senior Chloe Master and junior Alexa Lenfest did so in four.

In the Nos. 1 and 2 boys slots, captains Marco Rodriguez and Marker Angelakis dropped just six points apiece in three-game wins. Other three-game wins were recorded by soph Jack Kennedy and junior Tom Bradbeer. Junior Rohan Bhambhani and eighth graders Oliver Leedale-Brown and Hyun Su Price won in four games. Frosh Ryan Yeatman toughed out a five-gamer.

The basketball teams went 0-2.

The girls were topped by visiting Episcopal Academy, 51-46, though three players—soph India Barnes (13), frosh Kait "Katchy" Hnatkowsky (12), soph Carmen Williams (10)—scored in double figures.

Major shooting woes from the floor (11-for-63) doomed the boys in a 55-37 setback at Germantown Academy. Junior Ryan "Zingy" Maloney claimed 11 rebounds. Ryan "Pooch" Holmes leaps over GA. More photos.
