Garza Leads Camels to 2-1 Mark at Wesleyan-Flynn, Sandler Post 4-1 Records for Women
MIDDLETOWN, Conn.--The Connecticut College squash teams competed in the Wesleyan Invitational Tournament this weekend. The men´s team won two out of three matches and will break for the exam period with a record of 4-3. The Camel women went 2-3 and are 3-5 overall.
The Camel women are an improved unit from a year ago and it is showing on the scoreboard.
Senior Cara Flynn (Haverford, Pa.) and freshman Jillian Sandler (Rocky Hill, Conn.) posted 4-1 records this weekend. Sophomore Jenn Hyslip (Andover, Mass.) went three for five. Junior Victoria Leeds (New York, N.Y.) earned the praise of her teammates and coaches for her competitive spirit. Leeds played three in five set battles for the Camels, and was the closest of any Camel in the Mount Holyoke match.
Freshman Caleb Garza (Ocean City, N.J.) continued his winning ways with a sweep at the number one position. The match of the weekend was the men´s contest against Wesleyan. The freshmen grouping of Garza, Benito Fernandez (New York, N.Y.), Chris King (Princeton, N.J.), Asa Welty (Gloucester, Mass.) and Charlie Bolton (Bratenahl, Ohio) all came through to seal this exciting victory against the Cardinals on their home court.
Fernandez and King pulled out grueling five set thrillers for the Camels. Welty disposed of his opponent in three games.
Sophomore Jeremy Wong (Newton, Mass.) had three five setters, while Fernandez had two. Garza and Charlie Bolton each had one.
"It is a testament to the grit and scrappiness of this team that they are having such long and tight matches at this stage of the season," head coach Bill McNally said. "You usually don´t find long matches this early in the season."
