Five NCS Teams Compete in 2016 Howe Cup, B Team Reaches Final

National Capital Squash sponsored five teams to play in the 2016 U.S. Women’s Team National Championships, held in Chelsea Piers, Stamford CT the weekend of Nov 11-13.

A team

The National Capital ACES played in a round robin format against five other A teams, ultimately winning two contests and losing three. On Friday they defeated a Connecticut team 4-1, and lost to a Boston team 1-4. On Saturday they lost to the New York team that ultimately won the Cup, 0-5, and again to a Philadelphia team 2-3. On Sunday they defeated a very tough “Gabler’s Gang” Connecticut team 3-2. Captain Margaret Gerety, playing at the #2 position, pulled out an amazing 5-game win against pro and perennial contender Juliana Lilien, (10), 7, (8), 6, 5, to clinch the final team victory.

B team

The National Capital Lob-B-ists were seeded third in a full field of 16 B teams configured in a conventional straight draw. On Friday they began play by soundly defeating a Connecticut-based team 4-1. Their second round match was against a Seattle team, “Eve’s Tough Cookies”, so named after the recently deceased mother of one of the Seattle players who came late to the game of squash but played until she was 80. The NCS team prevailed, 3-2. On Saturday the Capital Lob-B-ists won in a narrow 3-2 victory over a very strong Chicago team that had been seeded second in the draw. In the finals on Sunday they lost to a veteran Canadian team in a very tight contest, 2-3. Congratulations to Sarah Davidson who, playing at the #4 position, did not drop a match all weekend!

C Teams

National Capital Squash sent two C teams to Howe Cup this year. Twelve C teams competed in a first round pool play format.

The District Columbians, captained by Baltimore SquashWise Director Abby Markoe, lost two matches and won one in first round pool play. In the subsequent playoff for the 10-12 spots, the District Columbians lost to Squashlandia West (a Portland team) 2-3, and in their final match lost to a second Portland team, 1-4. The District Columbians were proud to have urban squash juniors Rachel Matamoros (Squash Haven) and Kamarra Richberg (SquashWise) on the team.

Left to right: DC Cerebrals team members Ubu Grace Hoshizaki, Heidi Fisher, Cindy Vojtech, Elizabeth Holdefer, Christi Tezak

The second NCS C team, the DC Cerebrals, came in third in first-round pool play, defeating a Portland team (Squashlandia North) 5-0 but losing to Boston 1-4 and to Texas 1-4. In the subsequent 7-9 playoff, they defeated New York 3-2 and lost to Philadelphia 2-3, finishing 8 in the field of 12 teams. Playing in her first Howe Cup ever, Elizabeth Holdefer had an impressive showing at the #3 position, and finished with a winning 3-2 record for the tournament. Congratulations to Cindy Vojtech who, playing at the very challenging #1 spot, lost only one match the whole weekend, and that was a hard-fought 10, 5, (8), (10), 6 loss to a tough Boston player.

D Team

Left to right: D team members Rachel Capps, Melinda Hendricks, Nijah Fleet, Annette Zehler, Maureen Wylie (captain)

The Dee Cee Nasty Women were one of 16 D teams entered in Howe Cup this year. New to the team were NCS player Rachel Capps, playing at the #4 position, and SquashWise junior Nijah Fleet at #5. In the first round, the Nasty Women defeated a Philadelphia team 3-2, and then lost to a Connecticut team 2-3. In the Plate 2 Consolation they lost to a second Philly team, to a New Jersey team, and to the Dazzling D-vas (a mash-up New England team), finishing 12 in the field of 16 teams. Congratulations to Howe Cup newcomer Rachel Capps, who lost only the last match of the weekend, and that in 5 hard-fought games. We know you will be playing Howe Cup again!

Special thanks to two women who are “usual suspects” for Howe Cup but were unable to play this year: Elena Guarinello, who designed the team T-shirts for the National Capital Squash teams, and Donna Sharpe who ordered them. They were a big hit!

Copeland, Butterfield Receive Awards at Howe Cup

November 22nd, 2015

At the Saturday night party in conjunction with the 2015 Howe Cup, the Women’s Committee of US Squash presented two annual awards, both to National Capital Squash women.

Congratulations to AJ Copeland who won the prestigious Achievement Award, and to Mona Butterfield – whose passion and dedication to squash are demonstrated in her

organizing the National Capital Squash C and D level DC teams despite the fact she herself can no longer play — for the Sportsmanship Award.

Here is the US Squash write up on the awards:

The revered Saturday night party took place at the Boston Aquarium where the Feron’s Wedgwood Sportsmanship Trophy and Women’s Achievement Bowl were presented to surprise winners, Mona Butterfield and AJ Copeland respectively. Both Butterfield and Copeland are active in National Capital Squash. Despite continued knee problems which now keep Mona away from actual competition, Mona can be relied on to rally the D.C. beginners to participate in Howe Cup. An emotional Butterfield, on receiving her award, admitted how many feel—Squash is her life and injury will not stop her from being part of the action.

Copeland, an extremely popular winner of the Achievement Award this year, has lead the D.C. women’s community for over ten years and also has served as co-chair of the Women’s committee for the last six. Completely blindsided this year, Copeland’s heartfelt speech encapsulated the feelings of many, “Squash has given me so much more than I have ever given squash, not least of all because of the dear friends I have made through the sport.”

NCS Fields Five Teams at 2015 U. S. Women’s Team Championship (Howe Cup)

November 22nd, 2015

National Capital Squash sent five teams in four divisions to the 2015 Howe Cup, held at the Murr Center courts of Harvard University in Boston, MA. This was the largest ever Howe Cup, with more than 250 women from all over the country and Canada participating in the three-day event November 7-9.

A team

The NCS A team featured Baltimore high school senior Casey Wong at #1, the only woman returning from the 2014 Howe Cup championship A team. Howe Cup newcomer Chanel Erasmus, a recent Trinity graduate, was recruited to play #2. Recent George Washington University graduate and Colombia native Maria Porras played in her first Howe Cup at #3. Casey’s older sister and new NCS member Lindsay Wong played #4, and rounding out the team at #5 and serving as captain was Wisconsin resident and perennial Howe Cup “orphan” Leslie Cameron. The team competed against each of the other A teams in a round robin format and won three matches

against one Philadelphia and one Boston team and a West Coast-based “Olympic” team. They dropped two contests, one against a senior Boston team and the second against the winning Philadelphia team that swept the draw without dropping a single match, thus finishing third in a field of six teams. The players, none of whom knew each other before the tournament (other than the Wong sisters), gelled beautifully as a team and had a blast.



B1 Team

National Capital Squash fielded two teams in the B division at Howe Cup, which had a record 21 teams total in the draw. The NCS B1 team was captained by Howe Cup veteran Carole Grunberg, who won all four of her matches at the #5 position. Well played Carole! Colorado resident and adopted NCS player Heidi Wagner played in the #1 spot. Potomac School senior Katy Correia played #2, and the #3 and #4 spots were filled by Teddy Weiss and Sarah Davidson respectively. In the first round, the team pulled out a 3-2 win against a competitive team of college players from Queen’s University in Canada, and then soundly defeated the NCS B2 team 5-0 in the second round. On the second day of play the B1 team encountered the formidable Fairfield County Flash, who ultimately won the B draw, and fell in a hard-fought 1-4 loss. In the Classic Plate consolation draw they lost 1-4 to one of four Boston B teams in their final match of the tournament.

B2 Team

Why does this team photo have six people in it? The second NCS B team, dubbed B2, was captained by AJ Copeland who played at the #3 position. Nicole and Jess Powers, sisters from Connecticut who have been NCS “mercenaries” for many years, played at #1 and #2 respectively. Andrea Powers, a Seattle resident, was recruited as an “orphan” and picked up the #5 spot. Unfortunately, the woman designated to play #4 for NCS B2 was a late scratch due to illness. Unable to find an uncommitted B player to fill that spot, the team picked up California native Juliet Lamont who was also playing (at the #2 position) for the Boston “Orange Line” B team! Sporting a shiner sustained in a pre-tournament squash match, Juliet played six matches in the first two days of the tournament, (winning 2 of 3 that she played for NCS B2). What an Energizer bunny! On Sunday Juliet ceded her spot to a Boston teammate, Ann Bellinger, whose team was out after only three matches in the tournament. As it happens, Ann was an NCS member as a junior player and played for an NCS D team in the 2008 Howe Cup. The B2 team met the B1 team in their first contest, losing 0-5 and getting bumped to the main Consolation Draw. For their second match B2 defeated an urban squash team, NUSEA, 5-0, and then lost in a 2-3 nail-biter against a tough Boston Red Line team. In classic Howe Cup fashion, the team was still in the tournament, and won their remaining two matches in the second Consolation plate on Sunday against a New York team and a Philadelphia team, both 3-2.

C Team: Hot Shakers

The NCS C Team was headlined by Cindy Vojtech at #1, followed by Donna Sharpe, Stephanie Bosserman of Charlottesville, and Elena Guarinello. Former NCS junior (now Boston resident) Heidi Fisher held up the #5 position. In pool play the Hot Shakers lost their first contest 1-4 to the ultimate C champions, Boston Knows Howe, with a number of hard-fought games going to 4. The team then defeated a Portland team (“Howe About Portland?”, advocating to host Howe Cup in 2017), followed by two 2-3 losses to two different New York C teams. The final challenge against the Dartmouth Dames saw Heidi and Elena winning in five games, Cindy and Donna each recording a loss after four games, and a DC default at the #3 position. Final place in the tournament was somewhere in the middle of the field of 12 C teams.

D Team: DC Spicy Squashers

The NCS D Team was led off by former Philadelphia D team player Alex Cummin at #1, followed by Christi Tezak, Melinda Hendricks of Charlottesville, Maureen Wylie, and Annette Zehler. The D team won two of their five contests.

NCS Women “A” Team Wins Howe Cup for the Third Time in Seven Years

November 18th, 2014

The 81stannual U.S. Women’s Team Championship, also known as the Howe Cup, was held the weekend of November 14-16 at the McArthur Squash Center at Boar’s Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, VA. Over 150 women competing in 5-woman teams in the singles divisions A, B, C, and D. The A team, organized by NCS member AJ Copeland, included former Results pro Larissa Stephenson (who now lives in Houston), NCS junior Isabel Young, Baltimore junior Casey Wong, and two “orphan” recruits, Alli Rubin from Boston and Mei Lin Ong from California. The team was dubbed the “Four Corners”, reflecting the geographic diversity of its members. The Four Corners team beat out three other strong A teams in a  round robin format to win the Howe Cup for NCS. The team’s first match against Boston was split 2-2 and came down to a nail-biter contest between captain and #1 player Larissa and her Boston opponent and close friend Fernanda Rocha; Larissa won in 5 games. With Larissa nursing a groin strain, the team was able to pull out a 3-2 victory against Seattle in the second contest. With the final match of the tournament, the team rallied to a 4-1 victory over Philadelphia to clinch the Cup. Congratulations to Casey and Isabel, the anchors of the team at the #2 and #5 positions, respectively, and who won all their matches of the tournament.

In a field of 12 teams in the B draw, the NCS B1 team of Howe Cup veterans finished third. In the first round of round robin play, the team defeated a Boston team 5-0, Philadelphia 3-2, and New York 5-0, advancing to the top tier of the second pool play. In the second round, the team lost a tough 3-2 contest to the California team that ultimately won the draw, and dropped 3-2 to a team of UVA undergraduate girls. Congratulations to Carole Grunberg who at the #4 position won all of her matches of the tournament!

Out of a 12-team B draw, the NCS B2 team – hailing from DC, VA and Darien, CT – finished fourth. On the first day of the Howe Cup tournament, the team defeated the Canadian team Northern Knickers 4-1 in the first round of play but lost their second match 3-2 to the eventual winners of the draw, the California Giant Sparkle. The team won their next three matches against the Barn Louses, Philly B and Cabernet Canucks —placing second in their first pool and finishing fourth overall. Team ringer Jess Powers dropped only one game throughout tournament play at the number four position. Go Jess!



NCS C Team “Covergirls”

In a field of nine teams in the C draw, the NCS team of Howe Cup veterans “Covergirls” finished second overall. Co-captain Donna Sharpe headlined at the #1 position, followed by Cindy Vojtech at #2 and Candace Craig at #3. NCS junior player Lauren Evoy was promoted from the D draw to the Cs this year and played #4, and Charlottesville resident but longtime NCS mercenary Stephanie Bosserman played #5. The first contest of the tournament witnessed a tight 2-3 loss to the Brooklyn Cyclones. Thereafter the team defeated teams from Charlottesville and Boston, and defeated the other NCS C team 3-2. Congratulations to both Stephanie and Candace, who won all 4 of their matches!

NCS C Team GlamourGirls

The second NCS team in the C draw, the “Glamourgirls”, finished 7th out of 9 teams, winning one team match and losing four. Co-captained by the only organic NCS player Elena Guarinello, playing at the #5 position, the team boasted Elizabeth Thys from Boston at #1, junior Haley Bloch from Connecticut at #2, Charlottesville native Molly Brooks at #3, and at #4 Alix Walker, formerly of New York, now living in Detroit. Both Haley and Molly were playing in their first Howe Cup ever. Congratulations to Molly for winning all 4 of her matches!

NCS D Team “DC Darlings”

Congratulations Darlings! — One of two NCS teams entered in the D draw, team “DC Darlings” won all their matches and finished first overall in a field of six teams in round robin play. The Darlings handily defeated teams from Philadelphia, Boston, Long Island and the other NCS D team. The team, headlined by Baltimore Squashwise coach Abby Markoe, also boasted Howe Cup newcomers Ainsley Stapleton and Anneka Wisker from NCS as well as mercenary Martha Shaindlin from Pittsburgh. Squashwise player Tayler St. Clair brought up the #5 position and won all of her matches. We know we will see these ladies at Howe Cup again!

NCS D Team “Dishy Chicks”

The second NCS team entered in the D draw, team “Dishy Chicks”, won two of their 5 matches in round robin play, finishing fourth overall in the division standings. The #1, #2 and #3 team positions were filled by Howe Cup veterans Christi Tezak, Melinda Hendricks of Charlottesville, and Maureen Wylie. Eryn Rich from the Baltimore urban squash program Squashwise played at the #4 position and Howe Cup newcomer Annette Zehler brought up the bottom of the ladder at #5. The team started strong with a 3-2 triumph over the Long Island Lizards, and then lost 1-4 to Boston. On the second day of play they defeated the Philly SquashSmarts team 4-1 and then lost to the DC Darlings 1-4. On the final day of play the Chicks lost a tight 2-3 contest with the second Philadelphia team. Congratulations to Annette for winning all 5 of her matches!

Women’s Squash Night Report

September 24th, 2014

The third annual national Women’s Squash Week event was celebrated in style in the National Capital region! More than 35 women attended the event at McLean Health and Racquet Club on Tuesday night, September 23. Skill levels of the participants ranged from rank beginners to rusty old ex-varsity hardball players, some of whom have not been seen on a singles court in this area for more than 20  years! Players new to the area and new to the game were able to meet up with other players of similar skill level. Play started with queen-of-the-court to accommodate the large number of players, which segued into rotating 5-point PAR “games”. The first 30 attendees got a charcoal gray commemorative T-shirt, courtesy of US Squash. Many thanks to McLean Health and Racquet Club, to National Capital Squash, and to US Squash for supporting this popular event!

Baltimore defeats National Capital in 5-4 Lacy Cup thriller

April 13th, 2014

The women on the NCS and Baltimore teams pose for a photo at the 2014 Lacy Cup

On Sunday March 30 at the Potomac School courts, a 9-member team of selected National Capital Squash (NCS) women squash players took on their rivals from Baltimore in pursuit of the 2014 Lacy Cup, the annual DC-vs-Baltimore women’s team competition.

The bottom of the Baltimore ladder consisted of four young ladies from Baltimore’s urban squash program, SquashWise. NCS newcomer and #9 player Claire Huschle lost 3-0 to her Baltimore opponent, as did #8 Maureen Wylie. Another NCS newcomer, Elizabeth Holdefer, fought a good battle at the #7 position and ultimately lost 3-1.

The momentum shifted in the middle of the ladder, as Cindy Vojtech playing at the #6 position took her Baltimore opponent in 4 games. NCS #5 Ubu Grace Hoshizaki and #6 Donna Sharpe both swept their Baltimore opponents, 3-0. Potomac School student Isabel Young playing at #3 defeated her Baltimore opponent in four games.

When another Potomac School player Nghi Nguyen lost in a nail-biter five game match to Baltimore’s #2 player, the Cup hinged on the final #1 match between Baltimore’s Casey Wong and Alejandra Porras who plays for the George Washington varsity team. Regrettably, Casey triumphed over Alejandra in 3 games, sealing Baltimore’s victory for 2014.

It was great to see players of all ages and skill levels out on the courts, having a great time. Everyone enjoyed watching the top players’ matches, and many players stayed after the “official” matches were over for an informal round robin.
Baltimore will host in 2015, and NCS hopes to win the Cup next year!

NCS women: please mark your calendar for the US Women’s Team Championship (Howe Cup), scheduled for November 14-16 in Charlottesville!

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.

But losing her first eight matches in sanctioned competition that year was slightly less enjoyable, Keating said.

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

Rather than turn her back on the sport, however, Keating said she found motivation in those early struggles.

“I won my first match in probably my third tournament and it felt amazing,” she said.

Keating has come a long way in five years. Last month, she won four of five individual matches to help her team win the 2011 U.S. Squash Women’s Team Championships, held Oct. 21-23 at the Meadow Mill Athletic Club in Baltimore.

by AJ Copeland, VP for Women

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” teams.

Wearing Harrow team jackets and matching T-shirts that sported a riff on the District of Columbia logo, National Capital players were easy to spot throughout the Club all weekend. Three of our eight teams were in the finals, including one “A” team that brought the Howe Cup home to DC for only the second time in its 56-year history.

National Capital A team

Howe Cup A Team 2011

L to R: Margaret Gerety (with daughter), Camille Lanier, Shona Kerr (CT), Larissa Stephenson, Kira Keating

Captained and headed by Larissa Stephenson, the “National Capital A” team started off the tournament with solid 5-0 wins over Baltimore and the Canadian Knickers. On Saturday morning the team was hobbled by the absence of Camille Lanier at #4 and had to default the #5 position in a tough match against Philadelphia, losing 3-2.

With the team fully reconstituted later in the day, National Capital turned it on in the semis and trounced New York 4-1.

For the finals on Sunday, National Capital met Philadelphia in a rematch and, with a complete squad, won definitively 4-1. Playing at the tough #2 spot, Margaret Gerety’s fan club included her 10-month old daughter, proving to all that “there is squash after childbirth”! Congratulations to Larissa who did not drop a match all weekend, and special thanks to our mercenary from Wesleyan University, Shona Kerr.

DC University Club A Team

NCS 2011 A1 Team

L to R: Abbie McDonough, Kali Schellenberg, Maggie Smith, Schuyler Haynes, Madeline Lurio

The five women who formed the “DC University Club A” team had the distinction of being the only “A” team whose members were entirely from one Club. Captained by Schuyler Haynes and led off by Abbie McDonough at #1, the UClub women had disappointing losses to tough Boston and New York teams in the round robin, and lost to Baltimore in the first playoff match. For their final match they rallied to defeat the Canadian Knickers in the 5/6th playoff, 3-2.

B1 team

2011 NCS B1

L to R: Carole Grunberg, Deb Phippard, Leslie Connolly, Heidi Wagner (CO), Sarah Davidson

Captained by Howe Cup veteran Leslie Connolly and led by “honorary NCS” Colorado resident and #1 player Heidi Wagner, the National Capital Squash’s “B1” team blasted through their early matches, defeating Boston, Jersey Girls, and Philadelphia all 5-0, and California 4-1. They met a very, very tough Baltimore squad in the finals where they were ultimately defeated, 5-0. This is the second year in a row that Leslie’s team has been to the finals.  Wait ‘til next year!

B2 team

2011 NCS B2L to R: Liz Tarran-Jones (Baltimore), Alex Franceschi, Teddy Weiss, Jackie Corrigan-Curay, Amy Newman

The National Capital “B2” team, captained by Jackie Corrigan-Curay, was missing its #1 player, Alex Franceschi, for its Friday matches and dropped to the winning Baltimore team 4-1 in their first match. They went on to defeat Seattle 3-2, New York 4-1, and the Cabernet Canucks 5-0.

In the playoffs on Sunday, they pulled off a 5-0 defeat of the Jersey Girls, taking a final #3 slot in the B Division. Special thanks to Liz Tarran-Jones, our last-minute recruit from Baltimore who filled in for an NCS player who had to drop out due to illness.

C1 team

2011 NCS C1

L to R: Debbie Boehm-Davis, Ubu Grace, AJ Copeland, Cheryl Springfels, Stephanie Bosserman

Captained by Ubu Grace (Hoshizaki) and led off by AJ Copeland at #1, the National Capital C1 team dropped to Philadelphia in the first round. In the consolations, they defeated a New York urban squash program team, and lost to Boston and National Capital C2. In the playoffs on Sunday, they defeated the New York youngsters again to clinch eighth place.

C2 team

2011 NCS C2

L to R: Karin Edgett, Heidi Fisher, Dory Gannes, Elena Guarinello, Kristin Lehner

The National Capital C2 team was bumped to the Consolation bracket with a first round loss to the women’s team from Canada’s capital city. They took the next three matches to win the bracket and face Baltimore in Sunday’s match. A close 3-2 loss placed them 7th overall in the 12-team C draw.

Congratulations to DC newbie Dory Gannes (#3) who was undefeated for the tournament. For the second year in a row, Heidi Fisher (#5) made the cross-country flight from California to join the C team, studying for college mid-terms between matches. Thanks also to C2 team captain Elena Guarinello who designed the team uniforms!

C3 team

2011 NCS C3L to R: Donna Sharpe, Juliet Lamont (CA), Beverly Lamberson (CA), Jane Collins. In front: Christi Tezak

With two “mercenaries” from California completing the team at the #2 and #3 slots, the National Capital C3 team started the tournament strong with a win over Boston. They went on to lose their next four matches, ending 6th in a field of twelve C Division teams.

DC Capitol Squashers (D team)

2011 NCS D Team

L to R: Jess Latterman, Michelle Kim, captain Mona Butterfield, Wendy Hall, Sara Khan. Missing: Candace Craig

Headlined by high school freshman  #1 Candace Craig who was sporting a cast on her left wrist throughout the tournament, the DC Capitol Squashers defeated New York 4-1, Philadelphia 3-2, and Boston 3-2 to clinch a playoff berth.

Due to a scheduling snafu they played the only other undefeated team, Baltimore, on Saturday afternoon, winning 3-2. Even though a team from Warwick had dropped to Philadelphia (which DC had defeated), the DC team was pitted against Warwick for the “finals” on Sunday, and suffered a heartbreaking 3-2 loss, thus coming in #2 overall.  Congratulations to (non-playing) captain Mona Butterfield, whose National Capital “D” team has been in the finals of Howe Cup for each of the past four years!
