Played recently in the same draw of the 4.0 division of the Virginia State Squash Open as Bob Hetherington ’59, who has won numerous regional and national squash and tennis titles during his illustrious amateur career. Bob, still spry 72, was upset in the quarterfinals by a young 40-something but I am glad to report that I avenged his loss in the finals, saving a match ball at 9-10 in the fifth game to eke out a narrow win over his conqueror and restore a measure of Deerfield pride. My four-year-old daughter is awfully happy to have a lucite “trophy” on display in her room. Next stop: Atlanta for the Piedmont Driving Club Invitational in mid-March.
