The St. George’s girls’ varsity squash team emerged victorious for the second year in a row at the 2018 HEAD U.S. High School Team Squash Championships in Philadelphia on Feb. 2-4. Meanwhile, the boys’ team placed fourth in the Division IV tournament.
The girls’ squash tournament featured 78 teams spread over five divisions with the Dragons entering the weekend as the No. 1 seed in Division II.
The team included Ainsley Weber '18, Amelia Schofield '18, Rachel Smithie '18, Georgina Green '18, Julia Schofield '19, Maya Bardorf '20, Diya Moolani '20, and Darcy Weber '21.
The girls team swept Shipley School 7-0 in its first matchup on Feb. 2.
The Dragons then faced two teams on Feb. 3 – Conastoga High School and Rye High School. In the afternoon, the team beat Conastoga High School 5-2 and then later played Rye High School, emerging with a 4-3 victory.
During the finals on Feb. 3, the girls’ squash team went up against Agnes Irwin's JV squad and won 4-3.
“Nerves were high in this one, and the early matches were a back-and-forth affair and after the first five matches, St. George's held a tenuous 3-2 lead, helped in large part by co-captain Rachel Smithie '18’s five-game win at the No. 6 spot,” Coach Sarah Mongan said. “With the No. 3 and 4 matches last on court, heads turned back and forth with every point. Maya Bardorf '20 capped off an undefeated weekend with a 3-0 victory and clinched the championship match for the Dragons.”
“This was a tremendous weekend of competitive squash up and down the ladder with every member of the team earning at least one victory,” added Mongan.
The boys’ squash tournament featured seven divisions of 16 teams with the Dragons entering the weekend as the No. 8 seed in Division IV.
“We were seeded eighth in the division and finished fourth, so we ‘beat our seeding,’" Boys Squash Head Coach Colin Mort said. “We were able to do that primarily due to a handful of players winning very close matches at key moments.”
The St. George’s boys’ squash team includes: Ismail Atef '20, Eric Molina '18, George Shepherd '18, Hayden Bertsch '20, William Wilson '21, Ted Tilden '18, and Patrick Fearons '18.
In tournament action, the team defeated Rye High School and then SquashSmarts 4-3 in its first two matches of the tournament.
In the match that would decide it all against SquashSmarts, Hayden Bertsch ’20 battled back from a deficit to tie it up and then clinch the team’s victory.
“In the end, Bertsch pulled away on the last few rallies to take the win both for himself and the team,” Mort said.
However, the boys’ squash team was defeated by Berkshire 1-6 and then defeated by Episcopal Academy 1-6, earning the team a fourth-place finish overall in Division IV, the equivalent of 52nd overall.Full match results are available on the U.S. Squash website.
