New York, NY — As most athletes were putting down their racquets for the season, a group of college squash players descended upon New York City for the Intercollegiate Doubles Championships. Held on the weekend of March 11, the event was hosted by the University Club of New York.
This year was particularly special because the event included a women’s draw for the first time. Two teams from Trinity played two teams from Harvard in round robin play. It came down to total games won, and the Harvard team of Cece Cortes and Sarah Mumanachit won the title.
The men’s draw included many fantastic upsets, including the team from Connecticut College pushing the Princeton team of David Letourneau and David MacDonald to the brink in five, with Connecticut College pulling off the upset.
The men’s finals featured the team of Gabe DeMelo and Ryan Mullaney from Franklin & Marshall, and the team of defending doubles champion Trevor McGuiness and his University of Pennsylvania compatriot, Dan Judd. F&M proved victorious and pulled off a five-game upset.
A great weekend was had by all.
