The women's squash team picked up two wins during a road trip to the Trinity Round Robin last weekend, finishing its fall slate with a record of 3-2. The women's team is currently ranked No. 20 in the nation.

The team began play on Friday night, losing its first match to George Washington (GW) 8-1 before rebounding to take both its matches on Saturday.

Bowdoin handily defeated Connecticut College 7-2 and Vassar 9-0.

Alden Drake '15 led the women, winning each of her matches. She won a fiercely contested 3-2 victory over GW before shutting out her second and third opponents.

Drake, who fills the fourth slot on the first-year-heavy Bowdoin lineup, shared her feelings about her weekend.

"Our first match this weekend was a hard loss to GW after getting into five 5-game matches and losing four of them," she said. "The loss showed us that we can compete with a team who is ranked better than us." GW is currently ranked No. 14.

Demi Angelakis '15 also faced fierce competition in her match against Connecticut College, winning the fifth set after trailing 1-2 after the first three sets.

The 8-1 score against GW underrepresents the team's performance. Three Bowdoin players—Angelakis, Rachel Barnes '15, and Christiana Whitcomb '14—fought to the bitter end, only to fall in their fifth sets.

The team will return to the courts after winter break, facing Williams on January 7 at the Lubin Squash Courts.
