Clinton, NY — The Hamilton squash program is built around sportsmanship and respect for players, coaches, parents, and the squash community. Sportsmanship, along with skill improvement and team focus, are areas the men’s team will be concentrating on this season. But don’t think the Continentals overlook performance. The team finished in the top 20 last season, and they’ll be looking to move up the rankings, focusing on NESCAC opponents in particular. Five new Continentals will be added to the roster. Marc Dudzik (Brunswick) and Joshua Wolpert (Chatham High School, New Jersey) are expected to play in the middle three. Freshmen Scott Casher (Loomis Chaffee) and Addison Morse (Williston Northampton) will be competing for spots in the bottom 3 along with junior transfer Alexander Kerman. The Hamilton squash courts got a facelift over the summer, with refurbished courts and new walls and floors.
