Saturday's GW Women's Squash Match Postponed
Dec. 6, 2012
WASHINGTON - The scheduled match between the No. 12-ranked George Washington women's squash team and No. 4 Princeton, originally set for Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at the Matthew J. Grossman Squash Courts at Lerner Health & Wellness Center, has been indefinitely postponed.
No makeup date has been announced at this time. The Colonials will now take a one-month break from competition. They will head to the Grand Cayman Islands for a winter training trip and will play Wellesley College on Jan. 11.
GW (5-2) closed out the fall portion of their schedule with a 3-1 weekend in New England with wins over Connecticut College, No. 19 Amherst and No. 21 Colby. The lone loss of the weekend came against No. 3 Trinity.
Freshmen Anna Gabriela Porras and Alexa Tzarnas, along with junior Maya Nair, share the team lead with five individual victories. Porras has been especially impressive, playing all of her matches at the No. 1 position on the ladder and competing for her native Colombia at the World Squash Federations team championships last month.
The Colonials are enjoying one of their finest seasons in program history. GW is currently ranked No. 12 in the College Squash Association (CSA) rankings, its highest rank ever, and upset then-No. 12 Bates College on Nov. 17.
