Dana Hall Varsity Squash concludes a successful season

Varsity Squash competed at the US Squash High School National Championships in Hartford, CT, February 6 through 8. They entered the competition seeded in the top eight of Division 3 and won second place.

Team members Helena Carroll ’15, Paige Taylor ‘15, Attabelle Wasniewski ‘16, Campbell Brown ‘17, Wendy Gomez ‘17, Sophie Langlois ‘17, Maddie Palandjian ‘17, and Sydney Solloway ‘18 competed in four matches over the course of the weekend, with the first on Friday against Darien High School at Avon Old Farms. Taylor says about the weekend that “It was definitely a long and tiring weekend, but we kept our spirits up and fought as hard as we could in every match.”

The rival schools include Brooks, Middlesex, St. Paul’s, BBN, and Loomis Chaffee, and teams throughout the northeast (DC to Boston) traveled to Hartford, CT, for the championships. The team’s ranking is in the top 34 teams in the country, and their win at nationals is an indication of their successful season so far.

Head Coach Nick Lloyd remarks that “this has been a successful year for Varsity Squash. With 12 wins and 3 losses on the year so far, the team has qualified for the A Division at the New England Championships for a second year in a row. There is the opportunity for this year’s team to have the best finish at the New England Championships that any Dana squash team has ever had.”

February 28, the team is headed to the New England Championships, where they will compete against five teams and are in the second-place position for the fifth consecutive year. The opposing teams are five of the top seven teams in the U.S. Stay tuned for more results from Dana Hall Varsity Squash.
