Squashers Seek Revenge

Print More

Two weekends ago, at the Constable Tournament at Princeton, the no. 1 seed on the women’s squash team, Olga Puidgemont-Sola suffered a loss to Trinity’s returning All-American Janine Thompson.

Apparently, losing that clash of the titans has Puidgemont-Sola clamoring for revenge, and she’ll have an opportunity for that tomorrow when Cornell takes on the Bantams tomorrow in Hartford, Conn.

With a 5-4 win over Harvard earlier in the season, Trinity has already staked its claim as one of the top teams in the country.

“They’ll be tough,” said Andrea McNeely. “They have a lot of international players.”

Cornell, however, has won six straight regular season matches, and according to McNeely, doesn’t have any fear of taking on the Bantams.

“We don’t have anything to lose,” she explained. “We’ll play our hardest.”

“We’re definitely looking to win,” said Kellen Heckscher.

This weekend’s match comes a week before the all-important Howe Cup at Yale,” said McNeely. “[The Trinity match] will be preparation for next weekend.”
