Women's squash routs Jeffs, falls to Bants at NESCACs

HARTFORD, Conn. -- The Bates women's squash team will play Middlebury for third place in the 2013 NESCAC Women's Squash Championships, following Saturday's 8-1 victory over Amherst in the quarterfinals and subsequent 8-1 loss to top-seeded Trinity in the semifinals.

Fourth-seeded Bates now takes on third-seeded Middlebury Sunday at 12pm at Trinity.

The fifth-seeded Lord Jeffs proved no match for Bates in the quarterfinals, while Trinity swept the top eight positions from the Bobcats by 3-0 scores in the semifinals. Junior Samantha Matos (New York, N.Y.) was the exception to the rule in both matches, winning in four games against Trinity after falling in five games against Amherst.

Sophomore Nessrine Ariffin (Penang, Malaysia), senior Cheri-Ann Parris (St. Philip, Barbados), sophomore Myriam Kelly (Bronx, N.Y.), sophomore Chloe Mitchell (Chatham, N.J.), sophomore Lesea Bourke (Greenwich, Conn.), first-year Lauren Williams (Bulawayo, Zimbabwe), junior Rakey Drammeh (New York, N.Y.) and senior Ali Bragg (Darien, Conn.) all posted wins over Amherst.
