Winter League Championships

Winter League 2017

Another exciting finish to the annual Winter League squash season. This year featured spirited and competitive play and deciding matches at virtually every roster position.

In the consolation round Mike Brennan’s Dragons won 3 of 4 five set matches over Matt O’Connor’s Suns including 2 where the Dragon player was down 0-2 in games. Overall the Dragons went 6-3 over the Suns. In perhaps the most thrilling match of the season Dragons Palmer Higgins took Suns sub Barrett Takesian to 5 games of exquisite squash that only 2 seasoned former college squash teammates could produce. Further drama came at 10 all in the 5th when a diving attempt to return a shot forced a 5 min injury timeout. Barrett held on and won 12-10 in the 5th.

In the Championship match  Doug Worthley’s Lions were too strong for Harvey Klugman’s Stags. The Lions won 6-3 behind strong showings by Tom Hambrick, Hawley Strait, Ken Farber and Liz Crane.

Congratulations to all players!

Bates College Squash Clinic at Portland Community Squash

Each year we are delighted when members of the Bates College Squash team come to Portland for an informal clinic. After a snow cancellation in February we are fortunate to have a number of players coming to Portland Community Squash this Saturday:

  • What: Squash Clinic, Exhibition, Q&A
  • Where: Portland Community Squash, 66 Noyes Stree, Portland, Maine
  • When: Saturday, March 18th from Noon until 2:30pm
  • Who is invited: Juniors, Adults, others
  • Admission is free
  • Format: Typically we have the players go through a quick warmup and then they’ll play a bit on the courts. This will be a combination of just doing drills and actual game play. We’ll move in to an informal clinic where we’ll have members of the team on court with groups of interested players sorted loosely by ability and/or age. We’ll also try to have dedicated time for Q&A in one of the classrooms. These young men and women are wonderful people with diverse and interesting backgrounds and love to talk about Bates and squash!

Please come join us for this annual event and see some of the best squash players in the country. Seeing them on the court and hitting balls is thrilling and exciting and you’ll gain new insight into the game and how it is played!
