GW Women's Squash Ends Season at No. 14 After 8-1 Loss to Williams
Colonials Improve Ranking by Three Spots in 2012-13
Feb. 17, 2013
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The George Washington women's squash team concluded its season on Sunday morning at the College Squash Association (CSA) National Team Championships, falling to Williams College, 8-1, at Yale's Brady Squash Center.
The Colonials conclude the 2012-13 season as the No. 14 ranked team in the CSA, their highest end-of-season ranking in program history. The Colonials improved its ranking by three spots, compared to last season's final ranking of No. 17.
"I am very proud of these girls and the fact they will be leaving here ranked No. 14 in the country," said Head Coach Wendy Lawrence. "A three-spot improvement compared to last year in these rankings is a remarkable accomplishment. We have no seniors, so everybody is back next season and we are anticipating a strong recruiting class to add to our returning roster."
Freshman Anna Gabriela Porras was the lone Colonial to notch a win, defeating Ali Rubin at No. 1, 11-7, 11-7, 11-3. Porras went 3-0 this weekend and closes her freshman season with a 16-4 individual record.
"Williams is a tough team and is very strong," said Coach Lawrence. "We knew it would be a challenge today but I think we played them tough, with three matches going to five sets and a couple of matches going four."
Prior to the match, Shea and Nair were honored as College Squash Association Scholar Athletes. The award is given to those who truly exemplify the term student-athlete, while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or above.
Porras and Shea will continue their seasons at the CSA Individual National Championships, March 1-3 in Hartford, Conn.
