Kira Keating Profiled in the Gazette

The Montgomery Gazette profiled sophomore Kira Keating's role in the National Capital Squash's team win at the 2011 U.S. Squash Women’s Team Championships.


An avid soccer player when she was younger, Potomac School (Va.) sophomore Kira Keating of Bethesda said she took up squash in 2007 because her two older brothers played the sport and it looked like fun.

“I’m really competitive so I kept wanting to go to more tournaments so I would finally win one,” she said. “ spanned a couple tournaments.”

Keating has come a long way in five years. Last month, she [...Read More...]

Meadow Mill Athletic Club in Baltimore hosted the U.S. Women’s Team Championship, also known as the Howe Cup, over the weekend of Oct 21-23, 2011. The annual women’s five-person team event began in 1928 as an inter-city competition between New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, and received the Howe Cup designation in 1955 when a permanent trophy was donated. The B Division was started in 1958, and a C Division added in 1968. The D Division was first played in 2003 and formally sanctioned with a trophy in 2008.

Participation has grown, and this year over 200 women representing 36 teams competed for titles awarded in four divisions.

With a total of 8 teams competing, National Capital represented more than 20% of all players and had more singles teams registered than any other city including Baltimore, and was the only city to field two “A” [...Read More...]
