No. 18 Men's Squash Set to Defend Title at CSA National Team Championships
Colonials Look For Second Straight Summers Cup Title
Feb. 21, 2013
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 18 George Washington men's squash team will compete at the College Squash Association (CSA) National Team Championships at Yale and Wesleyan University this weekend.
The Colonials will open the defense of last year's Summers Cup Championship against No. 23 Hamilton at 3:00 p.m. on Friday at the Rosenbaum Squash Center at Wesleyan University. The championship match of the Summers Cup is scheduled to be held at Yale's Brady Squash Center.
Also competing in the Summers Cup are No. 17 Middlebury, No. 18 Connecticut College, No. 19 Drexel, No. 20 Amherst, No. 21 Bowdoin and No. 22 Wesleyan.
"We have seen a few of the teams in this draw over the course of the season so we have a good idea of what to expect," said Head Coach Wendy Lawrence. "We are the defending champions so there is a bit of a target on our back but we welcome the challenge."
Last season, GW rallied off three consecutive wins to clinch its first ever championship, winning the Summers Cup (C-Division) championship for the first time in program history.
Freshman Reid Breck leads the Colonials with a 16-3 individual record in his debut season. He has proven to be a versatile player, totaling wins at three different spots on the ladder, including 11 wins at No. 6.
Senior Omar Sobhy ranks second on the team with 15 wins. The Sea Cliff, N.Y., native is already the men's squash program's all-time career wins leader and single-season wins leader.
