Northampton, MA — For the week ending 1/12/2014, Bates’ Rakey Drammeh and Penn’s Jack Maine 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.

Rakey Drammeh (Bates College): Williams visited Bates on Saturday to renew the school’s NESCAC rivalry. Williams was seeking revenge for the 4-5 lose to Bates at the 2013 Team Championships.  In the match at the #7 position, Bates senior Rakey Drammeh faced Williams first-year Alyssa Ritchie. Drammeh won in four games (9-11, 11-2, 11-9, and 11-6), helping the Bobcats record a 5-4 victory over the Ephs.

Jack Maine (University of Pennsylvania): On Saturday, the 13th-ranked Penn Quakers visited the 10th-ranked Dartmouth Big Green to open their Ivy League season.  In the match at the #8 position, Jack Maine, Penn’s junior co-captain, faced Dartmouth’s Bayard Kuensell. The pair played a five-game thriller that culminated with an 11-9 deciding game. Maine captured the match (3-11, 14-12, 6-11, 11-3, and 11-9) to record one of Penn’s five individual match victories. The Quakers earned their first victory over Dartmouth since the 2009 Team Championships.
