The women's squash team finished its season this past weekend at the College Squash Association Tournament at Yale University in New Haven, CT. The team finished ranked No. 21 nationally, competing in the Walker Cup, "C" Division.

The Polar Bears went 2-1 this past weekend, and finished their season with a final record of 8-12.

Every one of Bowdoin's ladder players collected at least one win this past weekend. The Lady Polar Bears dropped a close 5-4 match to the Franklin & Marshall Diplomats in the opening match.

They quickly made up for this disappointing defeat by triumphing 6-3 over the Georgetown Hoyas and trouncing the William Smith Herons 7-2.

Lauren Gesswein '11 pulled a perfect hat trick in weekend play in the No. 1 spot, while first years Monica Wlodarcyzk and Bonnie Cao also came out of the weekend with three wins at the No. 4 and 5 spots, respectively.

Elizabeth Warner '12, Elizabeth Schetman '13, and Alex Peacock Villada '11 all took two wins each for the Polar Bears, finishing out their season.

Overall, Head Coach Tomas Fortson said he was pleased with the women's performance over the weekend and the season

"The women had a very nice closing event to their season," he said. "We lost a very close 5-4 match to F&M—who had beaten us soundly 7-2 in the regular season—in the first round and went to win our remaining two matches convincingly with some excellent play by many of our players," Fortson said.

"It was a true rebuilding season for us with two thirds of our players new to the team," he added. "The women did an excellent job of overcoming many obstacles to first build strong team dynamics, and subsequently become a very competitive group. With no seniors in this group, we are all very excited about the prospects of this team."

The team, while for the most part done with their season, looks forward to the College Squash Association's Individual Nationals this coming weekend March 5-7 at Trinity College in Hartford, CT.
