Omar Sobhy Earns No. 1 Spot in U.S. Squash Rankings
Senior Tops Adult M 5.0 Division
Aug. 14, 2012
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's squash senior Omar Sobhy, the only Colonial to ever capture an individual national title, is currently the top-ranked player in the U.S. Squash Adult M 5.0 Division, as announced by the governing agency of competitive squash.
During the offseason, Sobhy competes for NY Squash, formerly known as the Metropolitan Squash Racquets Association and now ranks first out of 257 athletes in the division.
Sobhy enters his senior season with 40 individual victories after going 19-4 in his junior campaign. The Sea Cliff, N.Y., native was named the Colonials' Most Valuable Player for the 2010-11 season after winning the Malloy Cup (B-Division) Championship at the College Squash Association (CSA) Individual Championships.
Sobhy has been a mainstay at the No. 2 position on the ladder for the Colonials and shares the single-season victories record of 21 with teammate Islam El-Fiky, set in his junior season.
The Colonials, fresh off a Summers Cup (C-Division) Championship, return seven letterwinners and welcome a quartet of freshmen as they attempt to climb the national rankings in the 2012-13 season.
