WILLIAMSTOWN, MA- The Ephs played a solid match this evening against their opponent, the Mount Holyoke Lions. Ready for a long weekend ahead, with four matches total, the team was excited to test the waters in this first round.
All of the Ephs played well, with no Williams player dropping a single game. Abby Leblanc, at the number seven position, played particularly well against her opponent, making great use of the "low box" serve, which she has been working on.
Melissa Swann at number eight also played well, hitting some really tight rails. Co-captain Ananya Mahalingham-Dingra played crisply, making excellent use of the trickle boast. The team looks forward to the challenges the rest of the weekend will bring.
Eph assistant coach Blair Dils stated, "The players played efficient squash tonight. We're in a good place as a team to take on GW tomorrow. It's an exciting matchup that we've been looking forward to for some time."
Co-Captain Ananya Mahalingham-Dingra said, ""The whole team played excellently today and showed resilience in finishing every match quickly and with confidence. It was great to play Mt Holyoke, who are always great sports and we wish them luck with the best of their season."
