Squash teams open with 9-0 wins at Northeastern

BOSTON -- In front of dozens of friends, family, alumni and supporters, the Bates men's and women's squash teams kicked off their 2010-2011 season by each beating Northeastern in resounding fashion, 9-0, in the Badger and Rosen Squashbusters Facility at Northeastern.

The match marked a special homecoming for men's team senior captain Patrick Williams (Boston, Mass.) and first-year, Ashley Brooks (Roslindale, Mass.), who played their high school squash at the same facility.

Neither Bates team, both of whom are ranked No. 12 in the country by the College Squash Association, dropped a game in the 21 matches played and first-years Kristian Muldoon (Paget, Bermuda), Brooks, Samantha Matos (New York, N.Y.), Rakey Drammeh (New York, N.Y.) and Jane Mayer (Bronxville, N.Y.) all won their debuts for the 1-0 Bobcats.

On Saturday, the men take on MIT at 10 a.m. and the women take on Wellesley, followed by men's and women's matches against NESCAC rivals Tufts at 12 p.m. and Wesleyan at 3 p.m. at MIT before the Bobcats break for Thanksgiving. The Bobcats are perfect versus both the Jumbos and the Cardinals in the 2000s.
