All three were off and on the court quickly, dominating their opponents from start to finish and not dropping a game. The next round of matches continued their momentum, with Melissa Swann (#8), Esther Baek (#5), and Julia Ward (#2) all playing strong and clean squash to finish off their matches in 3 games. Last on court were Abby LeBlanc (#7), co-captain Ananya Mahalingam-Dhingra (#4), and co-captain Nicole Friedman (#1), all of whom continued the aggressive momentum and finished off the match with a final score of 9-0. Susana Wilson-Hawken (#12), Adrienne Conza (#11), and Caroline Hogan (#10) all played excellent squash in the exhibition matches, staying strong throughout the games and dominating 3-0 from start to finish.
Co-captain Nicole Friedman had this to say about the match: "Everyone played extremely well today with each player winning 3-0. Special shoutout to the freshman on their first collegiate win. We hope to keep the momentum up for another decisive match tomorrow."
The Ephs will next face Hamilton, a fellow NESCAC, tomorrow at noon to round off their home opener weekend.
