Dec. 7, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's squash team enters its winter break with its highest ranking in program history at No. 15 in the latest edition of the College Squash Association (CSA) Dunlop Men's Team Rankings.
GW (7-2) concluded the fall portion of its schedule with a 3-1 record across four matches in New England last weekend. The Colonials topped No. 22 Connecticut College (9-0), No. 21 Amherst (7-2), No. 18 Colby (9-0) and fell at No. 3 Trinity (8-1).
The Colonials have received outstanding production from its freshman players, particularly Reid Breck, who has won nine consecutive matches to open his collegiate career. Breck was the lone Colonial to record a win at No. 3 Trinity, upsetting the 39th best player in the CSA Individual Rankings.
James Reiss is off to an 8-1 start and was named the Harrow Sports CSA Male Player of the Week on Nov. 26 while rookie Ahmed Abdel-Latif boasts a 6-1 record, splitting time at Nos. 2 and 3 on the ladder.
The Colonials top two players, seniors Islam El-Fiky and Omar Sobhy, are off to a strong start as well. El-Fiky holds a 7-2 record as the Colonials No. 1 player. Sobhy is 8-1 overall and has played at No. 2 and 3 this season.
The Colonials now have a full month off for final exams and winter recess before a training trip to the Grand Cayman Islands, where they will face the University College of Grand Cayman Islands on January 11.
