The Northeastern University Men’s Squash Team travelled to Connecticut to take part in the Men’s National College Squash Championship. The team was really excited and thrilled to have qualified for the E Division instead of the F Division as the E Division was much more competitive with Varsity squash teams making up majority of this division. The following are how the matches went down:

Northeastern University vs Fordham University (24th February) – The Men’s team started their run at Nationals with a match against top seeds Fordham University. The match against Fordham was played at Wesleyan College. Unfortunately, the team could not create an upset and lost out 2-7, with wins coming at the 1st and 2nd position from Daniel Blohm and Karan Kishorepuria respectively.

Northeastern University vs Georgetown University (25th February) – The second match today was against Georgetown University at Wesleyan College. The Huskies put on a decent fight but still lost out 3-6, with wins at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd position by Daniel Blohm, Karan Kishorepuria and Connor Rouan respectively.

Northeastern University vs University of Chicago (26th February) – In their last match at Nationals the Huskies played the University of Chicago at Westminster School. This was a nail biter of a game with the tie going right to the last match with Will Greaves Tunnel playing at the 4th position. Unfortunately, the men came out on the wrong side and lost 4-5 in a very closely contested tie against their Chicago opponents. The wins came for the Huskies at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd position respectively.

With the close of this Nationals we will be bidding farewell to 2 of our seniors on the team – Francisco Calderon (playing at the 6th position) and Daniel Blohm (Captain and playing at the 1st position). They have been stallworths for the team and their presence during team practices and matches will be missed.

Special mention must be made of Daniel Blohm and Karan Kishorepuria who both went 3-0 this weekend and also Connor Rouan who went 2-1 this weekend at Nationals.

The Northeastern Men’s Squash Team have ended the season ranked 40th in the nation.

To conclude, we would like to thank everyone for the support they have shown this semester and year. The team would not be where it is today without its fans, donors, family, friends, coaches, support staff and of course the dedication of all the players both on and off the court. We are looking forward to working hard this off season and coming back even stronger next season.
