HARTFORD, Conn. - The No. 16 George Washington men's squash team split a pair of matches on its final day in New England, beating No. 18 Colby, 9-0, before falling to No. 2 Trinity, 8-1, on Sunday afternoon.
GW (7-2) opened the day with a 9-0 triumph over Colby, winning six matches in straight sets, including the top four positions on the ladder. Senior Omar Sobhy yielded just eight points in a 11-0, 11-3, 11-5 win over Trey Simpson at No. 2.

In the nightcap, the Colonials fell to No. 3 Trinity College, 8-1. Trinity had their record for the longest winning streak in intercollegiate varsity sports of 244 snapped last season and also failed to win the National Championship for the first time in 13 years.
Freshman Reid Breck pulled an upset at No. 6, defeating Matthew Mackin, the 39th best player in the College Squash Association (CSA) Individual rankings. Breck faltered in the fourth set with a 2-1 advantage but finished off the match for the 11-9, 6-11, 11-9, 8-11, 11-5 victory.
