NEW HAVEN, Conn.--The Connecticut College women's squash team secured a 6-3 victory against Mount Holyoke College in the opening round of the College Squash Association National Championship hosted by Yale University in the Elm City of New Haven.
Connecticut College Head women's squash coach Ted Childs was ecstatic about the win.
"Nina Nalle (pictured) and Allie Fuller were the stars for us tonight- as they both came back from being down 2-1 deficits and pulled out their matches in the fifth game," Coach Childs said. "The match score was 3-3, before Fullers win made it 4-3 and then Nalle won 11-9 in the fifth to clinch the victory for Conn. to move us into the Semis and fight another day for the 25th spot in the country."
Childs was also impressed with the consistent play of Elizabeth Varoli (Katonah, N.Y.), who gutted out a key win against the Lyons Friday night.
"Liz has done it for us all season," Coach Childs said. "She posted her 13th win of the season for us and continues to be the etiome of excellence for us."
The Camels will take on #25 Dickinson tomorrow afternoon at 5:00 p.m. in New Haven.
