March Update

March has been a busy month with a wide of activities that I’d like to share with you.

Firstly, the Men’s and Women’s squash teams each won Ivy League
Championships. The Men’s team had a 3 way tie with Princeton and Yale
while the Women’s team were the outright winners defeating Yale in a
nail biting 5-4 win.

Secondly, I’m extremely proud of Lily Lorentzen, the first woman to become a National Intercollegiate Champion under my tutelage as a college coach. What made the final even more special was that she played Kyla Grigg, a fellow Harvard team-mate for an all Harvard final. Furthermore, Siddharth Suchde made it a hatrick of final appearnaces by Harvard players in reaching the Men’s Intercollegiate Individual finals. He had a formidable opponent to contend with and therefore ended the season as the 2006 men’s Intercollegiate Runner-up.

Thirdly, the traditional end of season banquet for both the men’s and
women’s team was one of the most noteworthy ever. The warmth and team
spirit on display was tremendous and reaffirmed my passion for being a
college coach.

Lastly, I was pleased to preside over the first ever Kidsquash
tournament, an event for our community squash participants to wrap up
their season. The tournament would not have been a success without
Renato Paiva and Tariq Mohammed who were both instrumental in
organizing the event. In addition Squash Talk published an article on Kidsquash to further raise its profile.

All in all its been an exciting month and I hope to keep the momentum going.
