Tournament of Champions + Upcoming matches
The Harvard Squash Teams spent a few days at the Tournament of Champions in New York City last weekend. Both Ali Farag and Amanda Sobhy were able to qualify into the main draw of the tournament, beating some of the world's top players on the way. You can read about their matches on gocrimson.com:
It was great to see many alumni come down for the matches and for the alumni hit-around at the Harvard Club on Monday. A special thank you to Richard Chin for arranging that!
After an exciting weekend the teams have returned to campus to get ready for the upcoming college matches. The schedule for this weekend is below:
Saturday, January 25th
#2 Harvard vs. #4 St. Lawrence @ 5pm
#1 Harvard vs. #19 St. Lawrence @ 5pm
Sunday, January 26th
#2 Harvard vs. #5 Rochester @ 1pm
#2 Harvard vs. University of Toronto @ 4pm (exhibition match)
The women only have a match against St. Lawrence while the men play against St. Lawrence and Rochester. On the men's side, both opponents have improved significantly over the past years and will challenge The Crimson at every position. The men's JV team will play an exhibition match against University of Toronto after the Rochester match.
We hope to see many of you at the Murr Center this weekend!
