Squash – Girls Varsity vs Ethel Walker School – Away

V Girls Squash

The KO Girls Varsity Squash team had a great first outing at Ethel Walker, taking the match 6-1 with much confidence after such a long hiatus from the squash season!

Every player was ready to compete and produced a strong start to help the team start building our momentum. In their varsity squash debuts, Katharine Doar ‘22, Annabelle Jacobs ‘23, and Ilianna Brett ‘24 took the no. 8, 7, and 6 matches 3-0 with effective, deep serving and well-planned shots into the corners of the court. They adapted to their opponents and played better and better as their match continued. Macy Isenberg ‘22 battled through a 5-game, down to the wire match in the no. 5 position with her punishing forehand volleys and consistent shots to the back of the court, with a tough 12-10 nail-biter loss in the final game. Nonetheless, it was a display of true grit and a great first match! In the no. 4 and 3 positions, our co-captains Mackenzie Caruso ‘22 and Amrita Natarajan ‘22 demonstrated their experience on the court and got right back into the swing of things with 3-0 wins and clear improvements in their strategies from game to game. Ava Marseglia ‘26 and Sophia Lazor ‘27, our middle school players quickly shook off the initial nerves that come with everyone’s first varsity match and had dazzling displays of control over the “T”. Marseglia had frequent, skillfully aimed kill shots to the front of the court, and Lazor combined hard hit drives to the back with effective 1-2 plays to the front. It was a wonderful start to the season for the team!

We look forward to our next match, at home against Suffield, on 12/8!
