SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (Feb. 1, 2012) – The Mount Holyoke College squash team celebrated senior day with a 9-0 triumph over Connecticut College this evening. With the win, the Lyons improved to 12-6 on the year. They have now come out on top in five of their last six outings to solidify their position as the 13th-ranked team in the CSA National Rankings. Connecticut College fell to 5-15 with the loss.
From top to bottom, Mount Holyoke's lineup featured senior Shara Robertson, sophomore Katrina Intal, first year Kristina Myren, junior Kathryn Brummer, senior Marie Ozanne, senior Paulina Rojek, first year Dachelle Parker, sophomore Elyse Taylor and senior Sarah Moore. All nine players prevailed in four games or less for the Lyons, who topped the Camels for the fourth time in a row.
The most impressive performance came from Parker, who dropped just 11 points in her 3-0 victory over Becca Markson at the number seven spot. She has opened her collegiate with 10 consecutive wins.
Prior to the contest, Robertson, Ozanne, Rojek and Moore were honored for their contributions to the program over the past four seasons.
