WASHINGTON - The No. 15 George Washington men's squash team resumes its competitive schedule on Wednesday evening as the Colonials welcome No. 16 Navy to the Matthew J. Grossman Squash Courts at Lerner Health & Wellness Center at 5:30 p.m.

Both the men's and women's squash teams recently returned from a winter training trip to the Grand Cayman Islands. View pictures and details from their trip here.

GW (7-2) participated in an exhibition match while on the trip, defeating the University College of Cayman Islands, 5-3, on Jan. 8. Prior to the exhibition, the Colonials had not competed since an 8-1 loss to No. 3 Trinity on Dec. 2, which snapped a four-match winning streak.

GW is ranked No. 15 in the latest College Squash Association (CSA) Team Rankings, its highest national ranking in program history. The Colonials enjoyed a successful fall schedule, recording their biggest victory in program history over No. 9 Penn on Nov. 17.

Freshman Reid Breck leads the Colonials with a 9-0 individual record this season, including a victory over the 39th-best player in the CSA, Mathew Mackin of No. 3 Trinity. Classmate James Reiss is 8-1 in his debut season and was named the Harrow Sports CSA Player of the Week on Nov. 26 after helping the Colonials to their upset of Penn.

Following Wednesday's match, the Colonials will head north to New Haven, Conn., this weekend to face No. 12 Williams, No. 9 Columbia, No. 4 Cornell and No. 17 Middlebury across two days.
