The long-awaited opening match of the Deerfield Academy Girls Thirds Squash team was a great success. The squad traveled to Suffield Academy on Wednesday, Jan. 10th for an afternoon competition with Suffield’s junior varsity team. The Deerfield ladies stormed to a decisive seven-zero victory! Trisha Boonpongmanee, Sydney Gregg, Grace Russell, and Sophia Genender all swept their opponents 3-0. At number two, Daisy Dundas fought for a victory in the toughest match of the day. After a back and forth start, Daisy stayed focused and outlasted her opponent in the fifth game for the win. Gigi Deinard also overcame an early loss to seal her win, 3-1. Karen Trovamala settled in after dropping the first game and cruised to a 3-1 victory as well. Lilly Berry and Fernanda Ponce earned wins in exhibition matches to round out a resounding team victory to start the season. The Deerfield ladies look to build on this early success as they travel to Phillips Andover for a 1 pm match this Saturday.
