Cambridge, MA –— At the 2012 Women’s College Squash National Team Championships, William Smith and St. Lawrence played in the semifinals of the Epps Cup (D Division).
During the opening weekend of the regular season, St. Lawrence shutout William Smith. By championships, both teams had more experience and were ready for the rematch. After all, the winner would play for the Epps Cup.
The overall match score was tied 4-4 going into the final match between #4s Anne Habecker (William Smith) and Kendall Hearty (St. Lawrence). Hearty won the first game 11-8, but Habecker came back to win the second 13-11, which she followed with an 11-7 win in the third.
