The Wesleyan Women's Squash team traveled to the Boston Round Robin, where they played hard fought matches against the University of Virginia and Bates.

The Wesleyan Women's Squash team lost to a much improved University of Virginia squash program. There were some hard fought matches and a few jitters for the first match of the season. UVA looked a little more seasoned having had a few more matches under their belt. 

Laila Samy '18 came out with a straight set victory in her first match against UVA, and Liza Bayless '16, Bridget Doherty '16 and Tatum Leclair '18 played competitive matches. 

The Cardinals match against Bates was closer than the result suggests. Samy came out with another straight set victory, and Leclair won in a hard fought four set match.
