Jan. 6, 2014
WASHINGTON - The No. 20-ranked George Washington men's squash team resumes its 2013-14 season on Tuesday afternoon by welcoming defending National Champions and No. 1-ranked Trinity to the Matthew J. Grossman Squash Courts at Lerner Health & Wellness Center at 2 p.m.
GW (3-2) won three straight matches to open the 2013-14 campaign before concluding the fall portion of its schedule with a pair of losses at No. 14 Penn and No. 12 Columbia.
Freshmen Andres de Frutos and Nicolas Valderrama have each played to 4-1 records through their first five collegiate matches. The duo, both of Bogota, Colombia, has played at No. 1 and No. 2 on the ladder, respectively, thus far this season.
Breck recorded a win in the last meeting between the two schools as the Greenwich, Conn., native downed Trinity's Matthew Mackin in five sets (11-9, 6-11, 11-9, 8-11, 11-5) on December 2, 2012 in Hartford, Conn.
Tuesday marks the first-ever visit to George Washington for Trinity (2-0), who has won 14 of the last 15 College Squash Association (CSA) Potter Cup (A-Division) National Championships. The Bantams have lost just two times in their last 285 matches (.989) and their lineup features five players ranked in the Top 50 of the CSA Individual Rankings.
