Potomac School Squash Coach, Wendy Lawrence, said that the teams “had a great opportunity to play schools out of their Mid-Atlantic district such as Lawrenceville, Choate, Milton Academy, Pingry and Poly Prep.

“The teams had great time making competing with so many great high school players. It was important for my players to measure themselves against other US teams and to have the chance to see the extraordinary squash facility at Yale. Several of our players plan to play varsity squash in college next year and this tournament was a way to showcase their skills to college coaches.”
