Jan. 16, 2011
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.
Sophomore Omar Sobhy also continued his winning streak, defeating Will Gruner in a five set marathon, 8-11, 11-6, 11-7, 11-13, 11-7. Sobhy, the 88th-ranked player in the CSA, has now won two matches in a row and 11 of his last 12 after dropping the 52nd-ranked Gruner.
Sophomore Player Haynes won the first game of his match against Jared Zuckerman but was unable to maintain the momentum, falling 10-12, 11-2, 11-6, 11-6.
The Colonials return to action this weekend as they compete in the Yale Round Robin. GW will square off against No. 17 Middlebury, No. 26 Connecticut College, No. 20 Stanford and No. 23 Tufts.
