Squash Team Goes 3-0 to Start Season Off


Quentin McCarthy

The Bronxville Squash team has had an exciting start to their season, winning all three of their matches thus far. The team plays in the FairWest League against other public schools in Fairfield and Westchester Counties; participants in this league include teams from Greenwich, Rye, Darien, New Canaan, Westport, and Scarsdale. The Bronxville team is led by captains Charlie Clifford and Andrew Doyle, with Junior Rustin Wiser playing the one seed on the team.

Between December and February, the team has six matches against other teams from the FairWest League. Each match consists of seven individual matches in which each player on each team, seeded 1-7, plays a match against the respectively seeded player on the other team. Each match consists of games that go up to 11 points; the matches are first to three games. In the three matchups Bronxville has played so far in the season, they have won all 21 individual matches and have lost only 3 out of 66 games. On February 1st, the team will play against Darien, who narrowly beat Bronxville last year at the High School National Championship in Philadelphia. 

In the middle of February, the team will travel again to Philadelphia to play in the High School National Championship — this time likely playing in division one after having been the one seed in division two last year. The team has a lot of promise this year, with a very strong lineup.
