Women's Squash Advances To NESCAC Championship

February 6, 2011

The Middlebury College women’s squash team earned its highest finish in the five year existence of the NESCAC Tournament, advancing to the championship match. The 11th-ranked Panthers cruised to a 9-0 victory over #17 Hamilton in the quarterfinals, before taking down #9 Williams 6-3 in a semifinal contest. Middlebury fell 9-0 to Trinity in the championship, the third-ranked team in the country.

Molly Hubbard (Sandisfield, Mass.) earned a 2-1 mark on the weekend, including a key five-game win against Williams in the semifinals. The sophomore returned from an early season injury, and was the only starter to take a game from Trinity in the finals.

Also going 2-1 on the championship weekend were junior Kathryn Bostwick (New Canaan, Conn.), sophomores Annie Ulrich (Simsbury, Conn.) and Lindsay Becker (Lawrenceville, N.J.), along with rookies Amanda Chen (Cranbury, N.J.) and Katie Yates (Rye, N.Y.).
