GW Squash’s Flynn Wins CSA Richey Award

Feb. 26, 2017

PRINCETON, N.J. – George Washington women’s squash senior Breanne Flynn has been named the recipient of the 2017 Collegiate Squash Association (CSA) Richey Award.

The Richey Award is given annually to the women’s college squash player who best exemplifies the ideals of squash in her love of and devotion to the game, her strong sense of fairness and her excellence of play and leadership.

Flynn has played a key role in the ascension of GW women’s squash into the national spotlight, helping the Colonials to the 2013-14 Kurtz Cup (B-Division) Championship and an appearance in the Howe Cup (A-Division) following the 2014-15 season.

In 2016, Flynn joined teammate Anna Gabriela Porras as the only female student-athletes to earn All-America honors in GW squash history. The Dublin, Ireland, native earned the honor after winning the Holleran Cup (B-Division) D-draw championship in the CSA Individual National Championships last season.

Flynn also shares GW’s single-season record for most victories (16) and is second on the career win’s list with 50 victories.

In addition to Flynn’s standout career at GW, where she has served as team captain for the past two years, Flynn has demonstrated leadership off the court as well, appearing on the GW Athletics Academic Dean’s List every semester.
