@GWSquash | CSA All-Americans
NORTHAMPTON, Mass. - George Washington women's squash sophomore Anna Gabriela Porras has been named a College Squash Association (CSA) Second Team All-American for the second straight season, the organization announced late last week.
With the honor, Porras remains the only player in the history of the GW Squash program, male or female, to be named an All-American.
Porras earned 15 victories this season against just two losses, all at the No. 1 position on the ladder, to lead the Colonials to a 14-5 overall record and the program's first-ever Kurtz Cup (B-Division) Championship at last month's CSA Team Nationals.
GW finished the 2013-14 season as the No. 9 ranked team in the CSA, the highest ranking in program history.
The Bogota, Colombia, native concluded the 2013-14 season as the 15th ranked individual in collegiate squash, a six-spot improvement from the end of the 2012-13 season.
Through her first two collegiate seasons, Porras has played every match at the No. 1 position on the ladder and accumulated a career record of 31-6, a win total that ranks fifth all-time at GW.
