GW has few home matches this season, with the most competitive against the #28 ranked St. Lawrence team on Jan. 16.

Washington Examiner Profiles Camille Lanier

Washington Examiner Profiles Camille Lanier

The Washington Examiner interviewed Camille Lanier, the top junior woman in NCS and US #5, in the Oct. 14 newspaper.

Here is an excerpt:

Examiner:  Most young women play tennis. Why squash?

Lanier: "Tennis is a very popular sport and I played it for 4 years myself. One day I just picked up squash because the courts were convenient to my house. Once I started taking lesson squash was just a much more interesting and complex sport to me. I found that squash was more intense and a challenge for me. I loved all the different shots you could make and even create. Also it was a much faster pace then tennis which meant anything could change in the score. You could win easily or if need be you could make a amazing comeback. "

Theo Mendez Wins Gold!

Congratulations to Theo Mendez who won his first Gold-level tournament (the highest level below a national championship event) at Cleveland's Chilly Pepper Open October 2.  Theo swept through the tournament and dropped just one game on the way to victory in the Boys Under 15 draw.

Congratulations also to Jacqueline Barnes who now sports her first top 10 USA ranking in Girls Under 17!
