Esther Baek & Julia Ward Earn All-NESCAC Squash First Team Honors; Sarah Willwerth Second Team

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA – Three members of Zafi Levy's Williams College women's squash team that finished second in the NESCAC Championship Tournament have earned All-NESCAC honors this year.

Senior captain Esther Baek was named to the First Team. Baek was honored for the third time in her career. Baek was a Second Team honoree in 2017 and 2018. Baek recorded 11 wins at the number two position on the Eph ladder this winter. "Esther has been our leader this season and she pushed the team to a record season," said Levy. "Her work ethic radiated throughout the entire team. She inspired everybody to work harder on her game. Esther has been a great role model to our ongoing players.

Sophomore Julia Ward was named to the All-NESCAC Second Team for the second consecutive year. "Julia has never stopped improving since arriving at Williams," noted Levy. "She moved up two spots on the ladder this season and was she not intimidated by the competition." Ward posted nine wins for the Ephs at the number one spot.

Sophomore Sarah Willwerth collected her first all-conference honor when she was named to the Second Team. "Sarah had an amazing season as she moved up three spots on our ladder in one season, which is unprecedented," stated Levy. "Sarah is such hard working kid and super competitive. I expect her to keep improving in the coming off season and compete for the top spot next season."
