CAMBRIDGE, MA - The Williams women's squash team played a tough match against a very well-matched team from the University of Virginia.

After a tough loss to the UVA team, the Ephs were ready to see how both the team and our opponent's team had shifted and improved during the year. Satisfied with solid wins yesterday in winning the Little Three, the team was ready to face the Wahoos. Despite several crisp 3-game wins and some very close matches, the Ephs fell to UVA  5-4.

Co-captain Hayley Parsons at the number two position played an incredible 5-game match, losing 13-11 in the 5th in a true marathon. Julia Ward at the number three position and Melissa Swann at the number eight position won in three games each. Caroline Hogan won, hitting wonderful drop shots and using volleying very efficiently. After co-captain Nicole Friedman clinched a victory to make the match score 4 all, Esther Baek at the number 4 position stepped up to the plate and played an intense 5-game match. Baek lost after a valiant fight.

The seniors commented, "This tough loss really gave us a helpful marker for how we need to prepare for nationals these next few weeks. The team is feeling motivated to improve their individual games so that together we can win next time we face this opponent"

Eph head coach Zafi Levy stated, "Tough lost to UVA. We were very close in few key matches but came up short. I am very proud of the way we competed this weekend and I am sure if we play UVA again we can win."
