V Girls Squash

Win 5-2
We knew we had to pull off consistent and aggressive squash to take the win, and we were ecstatic to take the match 5-2. In the no. 1 and 2 positions, middle schoolers Sophia Lazor ‘27 and Ava Marseglia ‘26 had impressive showings and close games against experienced opponents. Lazor managed her use of both ends of the court effectively, unfortunately with a 0-3 match result, but her hard work and skill set up the team for success as a whole. Marseglia stayed on top of her opponent’s strategy and was ready to respond accordingly, taking her match 3-0. The no. 3 match saw co-captain Amrita Natarajan ‘22 battling for a 12-10 win in the first game and maintaining her momentum to win 3-1, using deep drives and consistent volleys to stay in control. Co-captain Mackenzie Caruso ‘22 was down 2-1 in her no. 4 match, but kept her composure and relied on her use of attacks to the front of the court to come out with a fantastic 3-2 win. Ilianna Brett ‘24 had a marathon match in the no. 5 spot where she showed her mettle, unfortunately losing out 2-3. In the no. 6 and 7 spots, Macy Isenberg ‘22 and Annabelle Jacobs ‘22 maintained precise placement of their shots to control the court and win their matches 3-0. We were glad to have such a successful showing during our first week of match play in 2022!

Our next match will be against Choate Rosemary Hall, at home, on 1/19.
