Hatfield, MA — For the week ending 1/8/2017, Middlebury’s Caroline Jahrling and Western Ontario’s Matthew Henderson 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.

Caroline Jahrling (Middlebury College): When the 15th- and 16th-ranked teams meet, everyone expects the match to be close. Bates visited higher ranked Middlebury over the weekend. At the match at the #7 position, Middlebury’s Caroline Jahrling faced Bates’ Katie Bull. Jahrling, a junior, clinched the team match with one match to play with a five-game victory (8-11, 11-5, 9-11, 11-8, and 11-7). Through Sunday, Middlebury was 3-2 on the season.

Matthew Henderson (University of Western Ontario): In a rare home match, 18th-ranked Western Ontario hosted 14th-ranked Navy. With the two teams tied at 4-4, Western Ontario’s Matthew Henderson faced Navy’s Jack Herold at #1. After Henderson captured the first two games, Herold came back to tie the match at 2-2. In the end, Henderson prevailed in the fifth (16-14, 11-8, 4-11, 2-11, and 11-5) to capture the individual and team match for the Mustangs.
