In our online exclusive, watch members of the girls varsity squash team relive their very first win of a New England Preparatory School Council (NEPSAC) title — the fourth NEPSAC championship for Concord Academy.
“Our final three matches were very close and it took extreme mental toughness for our girls to pull off those wins, which we needed in order to capture the championship.”
–Charlotte Whitmore, coach
In March, the girls varsity squash team achieved a stunning victory in the Class C NEPSAC tournament, held at the Pomfret School. Despite formidable competition from across the region, all seven CA players finished in the top five of their flight to capture the championship trophy. “The tournament was remarkable in that all seven of our players had to maintain an incredibly high level of play over a grueling two days of squash,” said coach Charlotte Whitmore. “Our final three matches were very close, and it took extreme mental toughness for our girls to pull off those wins.”
Maren Taylor ’17, the team’s cocaptain, said, “I could not be more proud of this team. We would not have won the NEPSAC championship without all seven girls putting their all into every match and fighting the hard fight. It was a truly amazing thing to be a part of and such an incredible way to end my last season on this team.” This is the first NEPSAC championship for the squash program, and the fourth in CA’s history.
A championship banner was raised to the rafters of the gym this spring to honor the team’s achievements.
