  • Sacred Heart overpowers Porter's

    David Cukierman
    Porter's travelled to Greenwich, CT for their match against Sacred Heart who are currently ranked #2 nationally. The girls have been training well, but they saw what happens when they come against an opponent who are superior in the execution of the skills and strategy of the game. However, there is much to be learnt, and no doubt the team will use this experience to their advantage when they face local rivals Loomis and KO in the next week.

  • Porter's sweeps Williston Northampton in closely fought contest

    David Cukierman
    Sometimes the scoreboard doesn't tell the whole truth. And so it was today. Porter's swept Williston Northampton 7-0, but all but 1 match needed 4 or 5 games to decide the result. Porter's started shakily with Sarah Wagner '20 (#2), Lauren Schramm '20 (#6) and Lydia Woodworth '21(#7) all losing the opening game. Only Elle Lansing '22 was able to clinch the opening game. Schram '20 and Woodworth '21 were able to recover and both won in 4 closely contested games. Wagner '20 and Lansing '22 also overcame deficits and were both clutch under the pressure of a fifth-game. After the first round of matches, Porter's was able to to secure a 4-0 lead and clinched a team victory. The second round of matches also saw high-quality squash, and more Porter's wins. Haley Bloch '21 (#1) won in 4 games, Nia Carroll '22 (#3) won the most one-sided match of the afternoon and Taylor Hall '22 (#5) won relatively comfortably in 4 games. It was a tremendous start to the new year, and gives Porter's great momentum heading in to the most important part of the season
