WASHINGTON - The No. 17 George Washington men's squash team honored four seniors on Friday afternoon but was unable to earn a victory in the season finale, falling to No. 7 Franklin & Marshall, 9-0, at the Matthew J. Grossman Squash Courts at Lerner Health & Wellness Center.

GW (10-9) honored seniors Omar Sobhy, Sam Ehrlich, Player Haynes and Islam El-Fiky prior to the match. The quartet has combined for 171 individual victories over their careers.

Sobhy clashed with Guilherme de Melo, the No. 9 player in the College Squash Association (CSA) Individual Rankings, at the No. 1 position. De Melo swept his way to a 13-11, 11-7, 13-11 victory.

Freshman Reid Breck, who leads the Colonials with 16 individual victories, nearly picked up his 17th win of the season but dropped a five-set decision at No. 6 to Alex Arjoon.
