No. 13 Women's Squash Tops No. 16 Amherst, 7-2
Colonials Advance to Sunday's Consolation Finals
Feb. 16, 2013
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 13 George Washington women's squash team continued play at the College Squash Association (CSA) National Team Championships on Saturday, defeating No. 16 Amherst, 7-2, in the Kurtz Cup (B-Division) Consolation Semifinals at Yale's Brady Squash Center.
GW (11-8) now advances to Sunday's consolation finals at 8:30 a.m. The Colonials will face the winner of the match between Williams College and Franklin & Marshall.
"We felt confident in our chances today after our 7-2 win over Amherst earlier in the season," said head coach Wendy Lawrence. "However, every match is a different situation. For us, we looked at this as a must-win because we want to leave here with a national ranking of No. 13."
Porras dispensed of Chandler Lusardi at No. 1, 11-7, 11-5, 11-6 while Tapley (11-3, 11-6, 11-5 over Erika Robertson) and Tzarnas (11-3, 11-6, 11-5 over Evelyn Kramer) duplicated her effort with sweeps at Nos. 6 and 5, respectively.
Freshman Sarah Allen won a marathon first set over Corri Johnson before posting a sweep at No. 7, 18-16, 11-5, 11-7.
