Squash - Girls Varsity
2017 - 2018
Head Coach: Ralph Powers
The girls varsity squash team competes in a brand new, state-of-the-art, eight-court facility, which opened in October of 2012.
The team has league matches most Wednesdays and Saturdays during the winter season and practices all other days except Sunday. With plentiful court space, practice time can be extended beyond that of most of our competitors. Practices consist of warm ups, with creative dynamic stretches, drills that focus on consistency, and ladder challenge matches that are often hotly contested and exciting to watch! Those varsity team members who are aspiring coaches themselves have a chance to assist with junior squash clinics on Sundays and with squash camps for local kids from the community during the summer.
During the season, the schedule consists of league matches against schools such as Westminster, Williston, and Berkshire. Then the season ends at the New England Interscholastics. All individual varsity matches are recorded by US Squash and will determine the students’ national ranking, which is often important for college recruiters. Former members of the the girls squash team have gone on to enjoy collegiate squash careers at such schools as St. Lawrence, Hamilton, Connecticut College, and Bowdoin.
