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. "
