Hatfield, MA — For the week ending 1/17/2016, Drexel’s Ryan Morgan and Rochester’s Tomotaka Endo 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.

Ryan Morgan (Drexel University): On Saturday, Drexel visited Dartmouth. With the match tied at 4-4, #3s Ryan Morgan (Drexel) and Rebecca Brownell (Darmouth) began their fourth game. Morgan was down 1-2 in games but regained control of the match. She won the final two games to capture the individual (9-11, 11-7, 7-11, 11-4, and 11-2) and team match. This was Drexel’s first victory over Dartmouth, and according to head coach John White, “Our biggest win to date.”

Tomotaka Endo (University of Rochester): With every regular season match being critical for teams competing for the Potter Cup (national championship), Sunday’s meeting between 7th-ranked Rochester and 2nd-ranked Yale was important. Visiting Yale was up 4-3 in matches and on the verge of victory. Rochester tied it at 4-4, and the team match came down to the #4s, Rochester’s Tomotaka Endo and Yale’s Kah Wah Cheong. Endo rallied from a 1-2 game deficit to tie the match at two games a piece, setting up a one-game winner-take-all, for the individual and team match. Endo won the match (5-11, 11-5, 11-13, 11-3, and 11-6) to give the Yellowjackets their first regular season victory over Yale.
