Princeton, NJ — In the opening round of Epps Cup (“D” Division) play at the 2011 Women’s College Squash Association National Team Championships (Howe Cup), Georgetown, the 31st seed, faced St. Lawrence, the 26th seed.  In the match at the second ladder position, St. Lawrence’s Frances Robinson and Georgetown’s Kiran Gandhi played.

Gandhi, Georgetown’s co-captain, won the match in three games.  Despite being seeded 31st due to a regular season schedule facing only much stronger and much weaker teams, Georgetown went on to win the Epps Cup with victories over St. Lawrence, Smith, and Conn College.  If Georgetown includes teams in the Walker and Epps Cups on their schedule next season, they could build on their momentum and earn a place in the Walker Cup.
