The Women’s Squash team traveled up to Brunswick and
Lewiston in Maine on Sunday to take on the Bowdoin and Bates
squads, and left with two wins, 9-0 at Bowdoin and 7-2 against
The Bowdoin match saw the Bears play solidly throughout, and the highlight match was Laura Pyne’s win at #1.
After a short turnaround the Brown team boarded the bus and met a strong Bates squad who were very strong at the top of the ladder. The Bears lost at #1 and #2 but Sarah Crosky at #2 was involved in one of the two best matches of the day. Sarah fell 0-2 down playing tentative squash with insufficient length and width to give her a chance. Sarah’s shots became more accurate and hit with more pace for the remaining three games and Sarah fell 12-10 in the fifth in an exciting squash match.
The other match of note was Kali Schellenberg’s 3-2 win at #4. Kali started slowly but her shot making ability shone through in the fourth and fifth games before running out a comfortable winner in the fifth game.
Next up for the Bears are Yale and George Washington at the Pizzitola Sports Center on Saturday, February 6.
