After introductions, the team did a group huddle before their matches.

Dec. 14. The boys’ varsity squash team hosted their matches against King at the Fonseca Center squash courts and won with a score of 6-0. Each athlete played best out of 5 games and won their matches. 

Number one player and captain, Hassan Saad ‘25, won his match 3-0 and said, “I’m pretty proud of what I did today.” He shared how he won his games 11-0, 11-1 and 11-2.  

Coach Marcela Marquez said, “Everyone was fighting hard, doing what they needed to do, so we got the win.”

In squash, there is a ranking of 1-7 players whose matches count toward their league games. King only brought 6 players to the game, so Masters won match 7 by default. 

Each team member was constantly supporting each other and cheering each other on, especially during the last friendly match where Kai Biddulph-West, ‘25, lost against King’s number 2 player with a score of 2-1, a best out of 3 match. A friendly match is played for fun and does not count towards the league scores, and are usually played by the players who are not in the top seven ranking. 

Here are the results:

  1. Hassan Saad: 11-0, 11-1, 11-2
  2. Gus Creech: 11-2, 11-2, 11-1
  3. Alex Thorn: 11-3, 11-5, 11-5
  4. Oliver Jones: 11-4, 11-4, 11-2
  5. Jamie Milward: 11-1, 11-3, 11-1
  6. Caleb Grasheim: 11-1, 11-0, 11-1
  7. Kai Biddulph-West vs #2: 4-11, 11-8, 8-11 (Friendly)
