Northampton, MA — For the week ending 11/24/2013, Hamilton’s Hannah Coffin and Drexel’s Ibrahim Bakir have been named the women’s and men’s Harrow Sports College Squash Player of the Week.

Harrow Sports College Squash Player of the Week should have a significant impact on his or her team’s performance during the prior week and demonstrate sportsmanship. Coaches and Sports Information Directors may nominate players.

Hannah Coffin (Hamilton): The 20th-ranked Hamilton Continentals hosted 12th-ranked Middlebury this past weekend. With the match tied at 4-4, number six Coffin faced the Panthers’ Amanda Chen. After falling behind 1-2, Coffin rallied to capture the final two games, each 11-9, to capture the match in five games (11-8, 3-11, 12-14, 11-9, and 11-9). The Continentals’ 5-4 upset of Middlebury is believed to be the program’s first victory over the Panthers since February 3, 2000.

Ibrahim Bakir (Drexel): Drexel University’s home opener featured a match-up with 11th-ranked Williams. Drexel, the 21st-ranked squad,  took a early 4-2 lead, but the Ephs battled back to knot the score at 4-4. Drexel’s top player, Bakir, faced Williams’ Jamie Rizzero to decide the match. After losing the first game, Bakir captured the individual and team match by winning the next three games (11-13, 11-8, 11-7, and 11-3).
