Feb. 15, 2013
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 13 George Washington women's squash team opened play in the College Squash Association (CSA) National Team Championships on Friday afternoon at Yale's Brady Squash Center, dropping an 8-1 decision to No. 12 Columbia.
Friday marked the Colonials first-ever appearance in the Kurtz Cup (B-Division), which features the teams ranked No. 9-16 in the CSA National Rankings at the end of the regular season.
"Columbia is a very talented team and they showed it today," said head coach Wendy Lawrence. "Regardless of today's result, we still have some important matches this weekend that will determine our final end-of-season national ranking."
Freshman Anna Gabriela Porras picked up the lone win for the Colonials, sweeping Catherine Jenkins at No. 1, 11-4, 11-6, 11-8.
The Colonials suffered two losses in five-sets at the Nos. 2 and 4 positions on the ladder. Junior Jackie Shea took a 2-0 lead, but was unable to close out Reyna Pacheo at No. 2, falling 11-7, 11-8, 7-11, 5-11, 6-11. At No. 4, junior Kelly Barnes bounced back from a 2-0 deficit to force a fifth set, but ultimately fell, 7-11, 8-11, 11-7, 11-5, 6-11.
The Colonials will face No. 16 Amherst on Saturday at 1:30 p.m in the consolation semifinals. Amherst was defeated by No. 9 Dartmouth on Friday.
