MEN'S AND WOMEN'S SQUASH 2018-19 Season Preview

Both Wesleyan University squash teams boast young but talented rosters as the Cardinals get ready for the 2018-19 campaign. Last year, the women qualified for the C Division of the CSA National Championships and finished the season with an 11-13 record. The men’s team, which did not have a single senior on the roster, reached the D Division and were led by NESCAC Rookie of the Year Sean Choi. Both squads will be led by sophomores, with Choi on the men’s side and Aditi Prasad playing the No. 1 slot on the women’s team.

HEAD COACH SHONA KERR'S THOUGHTS

"Both teams have had an excellent preseason and are looking forward to officially testing their games against other competition. As always, we look to develop each player to their potential and are very focused for the season ahead.
