Squash Wins Again
The Indian Mountain Squash team performed very well in their final match of the season against Dutchess Day School. Due to time constraints, the top seven players played their matches as best of five and all others played best of three. Joseph, Jack, Don, and Issey all played best of three and won easily against their opponents in straight sets by staying focused and keeping the ball away from the center of the court. Avian lost her match in three but not without giving her opponent an extremely close match. Min Chan was not mentally prepared in his first game, but he came back reenergized and easily won the next three games. Heidi, Jack, and Cathy breezed through each of their matches winning in three straight by using a good balance of rails and drop shots.
Aya’s competitive nature came through once again. Although he had dropped the first two games, he persevered and came back to win the next three games by really moving his opponent around and returning her serve more effectively. Greg’s match also went to five, but he was not as successful as he struggled to move around the court with his recurring knee injury.
Will, although dealing with an injured elbow, won in four games against his opponent making this his seventh consecutive win this season.
IMS is ready to take on Millbrook’s thirds team on Friday, February 12, at the Stanton Courts.
