Squash Revolution Trains the best Squash Players
Last weekend, Washington D.C. hosted the annual Howe Cup Championship, the largest US women's national squash tournament. Women from around the country came together to challenge their squash game in four divisions. This year, women squashers of the District were proud to win very impressive titles against a very challenging competition.
The A Division team, DC ACES, crushed its opponents, winning every match without losing a single game all throughout the tournament. The drive and determination of the five players was inspiring. Margaret Gerety and Maria Porras, two out of the five champions, trained with Sergio Lopez and Mubarak Mohsin, Squash Revolution Coaches, in preparation for this event. "This is the second year Margaret and I participated in the Howe Cup, and we were hungry for the Win" - Maria Porras. All that squash training paid off to secure the coveted Silver Cup!
On the B division, the DC team, NCS Lob-B-ists, battled its way in a draw with over 16 participating teams, clinching an impressive third place finish after falling to the division runner up. Similarly, the team on the C division, DC United, faced some tough opponents and very intense competition, yet it was still able to secure a third place finish after a hard-fought 3-2 victory in the last round.
Prior to the tournament, all five members of the B team had been taking squash Clinics and training on a weekly basis with Squash Revolution coach, Fabien Sarran, at the Capitol Hill Sport&Health location. Similarly, three of the players on the C team had been taking weekly lessons with Fabien and with Squash Revolution’s newest coach, James Reiss, all at Capitol Hill Sport&Health. Teammates of one of the players on the the B team who went undefeated throughout the event mentioned that, "Sarah played the best they’ve ever seen in this tournament.”
