No. 13 Women's Squash Set For CSA National Team Championships
Colonials to Compete in Kurtz Cup (B-Division)
Feb. 14, 2013
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 13 George Washington women's squash team will conclude its season this weekend at the College Squash Association (CSA) National Team Championships at Yale University.
GW (10-7) will be competing for the Kurtz Cup (B-Division) after concluding the regular season ranked No. 12 in the CSA National Rankings, its highest end-of-season ranking in program history.
The Colonials will open the single-elimination tournament on Friday at 1:30 p.m. against No. 12 Columbia. The Lions defeated the Colonials, 8-1, on January 19.
"Everybody is very excited especially coming off a nice win over Franklin & Marshall," said Head Coach Wendy Lawrence. "The girls know it is going to be an uphill climb because Columbia is a strong team and we have moved up to the B-Division for the first time in our history. It is going to be a challenge but we are looking for upsets everyday."
Also competing for the Kurtz Cup are No. 9 Dartmouth, No. 10 Williams, No. 11 Middlebury, No. 14 Franklin & Marshall, No. 15 Bates and No. 16 Amherst.
Freshman Anna Gabriela Porras will lead the Colonials into the tournament in the No. 1 position on the ladder. She has a 13-4 record in her debut season and has been a mainstay in the top spot on the ladder.
At last season's CSA National Team Championships, the Colonials won three matches across three days, including an upset of then-No. 18 Amherst to win their second Walker Cup (C-Division) Championship in two years.
