Northampton, MA — For the week ending 2/1/2015, Princeton’s Kira Keating and Bard’s Satwik Srikrishnan 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.

Kira Keating (Princeton University): Princeton visited New Haven on Sunday. The 5th-ranked Tigers were looking edge 4th-ranked Yale and gain some momentum going into the final few weeks of the season. Every individual match was crucial for both teams. At the match at the #8 position, first-year students Kira Keating (Princeton) and Jocelyn Lehman (Yale) faced off. Lehman grabbed the first game, but Keating came back to take a 2-1 lead. In the fourth, Lehman evened the match with a 12-10 win. Keating captured the match in five games (6-11, 11-9, 11-6, 10-12, and 11-6) to help Princeton earn a 5-4 win over the Bulldogs.

Satwik Srikrishnan (Bard College): At the Hudson Valley Team Invitational over the weekend, Bard and Vassar met to decide the title. In the match at the #9 position, Bard sophomore Satwik Srikrishnan faced Vassar junior Tim Boycott. After four games, including two games that were settled in tiebreakers, Srikrishnan captured the fifth game and the individual match (11-6, 12-10, 4-11, 13-15, and 11-7). This victory helped Bard capture the match against Vassar, 5-4. Earlier in the day, Bard snapped its 28-match losing streak by beating Brandeis.
