Amanda Wins in Toronto

Just a few days after winning her third consecutive Ramsay Cup, Amanda was off to Toronto for the Granite Open.  She made it past the second-seeded Rachael Grinham in the semifinals to face the world number thirteen, Omneya Abdel Kawy, in the finals.  She was able to beat the Egyptian 11-5, 11-5, 11-9 in just 36 minutes.  This WSA Silver 25 event is the biggest WSA tour title of Amanda's career. 

She has now lost only one WSA tour final in 12 appearances!

Seven of Harvard's current and former players competed at US Nationals this past weekend with three of them making the finals.

In the SL Green Women's Open:
Cece Cortes '12 (Quarterfinalist)
Amanda Sobhy '15 (Finalist)

In the US Masters:
Jay Nelson '62 (Finalist in M70+)
Anil Nayar '69 (Quarterfinalist in M65+)
Bill Kaplan '77 (Quarterfinalist in M55+)
Hope Prockop '90 (Finalist in W35/40+)
Tim Wyant '00 (semifinalist in M35+)

Great to see Crimson squashers still going strong!
