Brown Earns Wins Over Bowdoin and Bates
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.
