Thank you to everyone who came out to participate last Saturday for the 2nd Annual New Canaan Opener! We had two 16-people draws in the Junior Division and two 8-people draw for the adults. Pictured at right is SLSC coach Brian Mathias, who won the adult tournament, and SLSC player Holden Prymas, won the Junior B.
Coach Lucia Mathias had this to say about the success of this year's event: "The Junior B division had players ranging from 2nd-8th grade and everyone played at least 3 matches. It was the first tournament for several players, and I am glad that we gave the opportunity to many people to experience their first tournament in a friendly and positive environment. We have started the event gathering all players (juniors and adults) in one court for the "squash pledge" (see below) and I believe that helped keeping the moral and sportsmanship high.
Congratulations NCHS Squash!! Both the NCHS Boys Varsity and NCHS Girls Varsity teams won the Consolation Plate of Division IV, taking 5th place overall. NCHS Boys Varsity played at Avon Old Farms and NCHS Girls played at Loomis Chaffee Feb 1st-3rd. Go Rams!!
Congratulations NC Squash Saxe teams!! Saxe A placed 2nd in the Boys Division II Consolation Finals and Saxe B took 2nd place in Division III finals.
