Although we didn’t win today, I would like to congratulate the entire team for playing their absolute best in what was the last match of our season. It was (almost!) the perfect ending of a great season.

The girls were excited to compete against Middlesex and great matches were played this afternoon. Our three wins were full of effort and grit. Our co-captain Nicola Rogers played #1 today and won her match in four sets. She deployed amazing leadership, being behind, down one set, but never giving up and fighting for every single point. Co-captain, Lucy Bronson (#4) also won, in five sets, being down two sets and winning 12-10 in the last set! She was resilient and proved that a squash match is never over until it’s over. And finally, Blythe Griscom (#12) won in five sets, playing a great match and showing great poise and determination.

Two additional shout-outs of the day go to Catie Meister (#6) and Sarah Webber (#8). Both girls lost in five sets but should be proud of their performances. They demonstrated great mental game and strong concentration. Our remaining team members played good matches and were able to showcase some great serves, aggressive shots, rails and boasts, which were all proof of their work on the practice and match court this season.

Finally, a big thank you to our two captains, Nicola and Lucy, for their ever-positive attitude and the caring attention that they consistently paid to their teammates. Although it was a new team this season that, collectively, did not have a good deal of playing experience on the JV level, the team had a good season and improved greatly all season long. It was a pleasure to coach such a nice group of girls and I hope to see each team member back, next season!
