WILLIAMSTOWN, MA - In the final leg of a four-match marathon opening weekend, the Ephs earned their first win of the season with a strong showing against Hamilton on Sunday.
The Eph men looked in control of the match from start to finish. First on court were sophomore David Pincus (#3), freshman AJ Solecki (#6), and junior Oscar Merino (#9). All three played well and dispatched their opponents in 3-0 victories. Next on were freshman Wyatt Khosrowshahi (#2), senior co-captain Mason Elizondo (#5), and junior Ben Eisenberg (#8). Khosrowshahi and Eisenberg each delivered 3-0 wins, and Elizondo also put another point on the board with a 3-1 victory. The last wave of play featured sophomores Carl Shuck (#1) and Claude Smith (#4), as well as senior co-captain Andrew Litvin. All three earned another trio of wins, with Smith and Litvin each triumphing 3-0, while Shuck's match took a bit more of a push before collecting an eventual 3-0 win to cap off the day.
Sunday's 9-0 completed a solid opening weekend of squash for the Ephs. Coach Zafi Levy had this to comment: "It was an impressive win today for the men's team. We have worked very hard this weekend and had to be very focused against a dangerous opponent. I was really impressed with our freshmen all weekend who have stepped up big time for the team."
The Ephs will take a much needed break over Thanksgiving weekend before difficult trips to Princeton, Drexel, and Penn from December 2-3.
