NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 18 George Washington men's squash team opened play at the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Nationals on Friday with a 5-4 win over No. 23 Hamilton at the Rosenbaum Squash Center at Wesleyan University.
GW (11-9) advances to face No. 22 Wesleyan on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. in the Summers Cup (C-Division) semifinals. The match will be played at Wesleyan's home courts at the Rosenbaum Squash Center.
"A win is a win," said Head Coach Wendy Lawrence. "Now our attention turns to Wesleyan, who upset Drexel on their home courts. They have a lot of momentum heading into tomorrow, so we need to make sure we get plenty of rest tonight and come back ready to play."
The Colonials jumped out to an early 2-1 lead on the ladder with straight-set wins by freshman James Reiss at No. 3 (11-7, 11-7, 12-10 over Joshua Wolpert) and junior Chris Bell at No. 9 (11-6, 11-6, 11-0 over Austin Engross).
With the win, Breck improved his individual record to 17-3 overall.
Senior Omar Sobhy picked up his 16th win of the season to clinch the match for the Colonials. Sobhy defeated Martin Bawden in straight sets at No. 1, 11-5, 11-5, 11-6.
Wesleyan defeated No. 19 Drexel to set up Saturday's semifinals clash. It will be the first meeting between the schools this season. The Colonials defeated the Cardinals twice during the 2010-11 season.
