Camels Earn Split with Haverford and Vassar

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.--Connecticut College Head Women's Squash Coach Ted Childs checked in today after a successful start to the 2016-17 campaign.  

The Camels dropped a 7-2 decision to Vassar in the season opener but then rebounded in the afternoon with a 6-3 win against Haverford. 

"The players got rid of their cobwebs and opening day jitters and played much more strategic in the afternoon," Coach Childs said.

Childs sends out a big congratulations to the four freshmen who each earned their first collegiate wins. They were Margaret Davey, Ashley Berry, Phoebe Pliakas-Smith and  Davis Lemay.

Tri-captain Caroline Lippincott (pictured) played hard and went 1-1 on the day with a 3-0 victory and a tough, nail biter five game loss. While Mawa Ballo, going against the best of the best of the country playing out of the #1 slot - played hard and determined but came up just short.

And tri-captain Anne Holly, playing out of the #3 spot - up from her spot last year at #6 played hard and is getting used to playing a faster speed at the top three level. Holly came up short and went 0-2 on the day but gained invaluable experience as we head further into the season.

Adrienne Sieverding playing near her hometown and at the #2 spot had a big win against Vassar, 3-1.
