ANNAPOLIS, MD - The No. 16-ranked George Washington men's squash team notched victories in the top two spots on the ladder, but could not overcome No. 11 Williams College, dropping a 7-2 decision on Sunday afternoon in Annapolis, MD.
Sophomore Islam El-Fiky once again recorded a win in the top ladder spot, cruising to a 3-0 victory (11-7, 11-7, 11-8) over William Morris. The win marked El-Fiky's second individual win in a row, and nine out of his last 10. El-Fiky is currently the 27th-ranked player in the College Squash Association (CSA) and the 172nd-ranked men's player in the world.
