The FitzGerald Cup stays in Washington

Report on the Annual FitzGerald Cup Competition

Prepared by Glenn Canner

The FitzGerald Cup stays in Washington!

The 62nd annual FitzGerald Cup competition between Washington and Baltimore was played on January 9th at the University Club in Washington with the Washington team extending its winning streak to 9 years and its overall historic dominance to 44 wins against only 18 losses.

Trinity Dynasty Beats Washington All-Stars in Largest Squash Match in DC History

By James Zug

Trinity College’s eleven-time national championship men’s squash team took on an all-star “Best of DC” squad on Monday 4 January 2010 at Bethesda Sport & Health.  Trinity won 11-2 in three hours of outstanding squash in front of nearly three hundred spectators. A superlative evening hosted by Brad Scott, the general manager of Bethesda Sport & Health and Jonathan Adler, S&H’s chief executive officer, the event had many organizers: Page Lansdale, a Bantam squash alum, was the point person, helped greatly by Jim Martin, Connie Barnes, Rod Barnes and the Trinity Club of Washington. The refereeing for the top three matches was performed by the Tommy Bahama-shirt team of Hunt Richardson, Malcolm Jensen and Meherji Madan. There were tables groaning from the platefuls of shrimp and sandwiches and much kibitzing amongst the many friends, players, supporters and board members in the National Capital Squash community.
