Squash, Girls: Varsity defeats Westminster

Event Details

In their first home match of 2019, the Big Green Varsity Squash Team took on the Martlets of Westminster.  Missing 6 starters, DA recruited a couple JV players, Daly Baker and Talbot von Stade, to play #6 and #7, and both showed they have varsity talent and grit.  Daly showed great focus as she beat her opponent 3-0, and while Talbot needed a game to adjust to the new level, she caught on quickly and won 3-1.  #5 Katie Parker started strong with a 2-0 lead before the enervating demands of midterm week caught up with her as she lost in the fifth game.  The senior captains of the day, #4 Soo-Min Lee, #3 Sasha Hinckley and #2 Emily Henderson, modeled great leadership and sportsmanship as their veteran expertise led them to decisive victories.  #1 Sarah Stonestreet also showed her strategic expertise as she prevailed in a back and forth match, winning 11-7 in the fifth game.
