On Wednesday, the Girls' JV Squash team knew they were facing one of their toughest matches of the season, the co-ed varsity team from Indian Mountain School. While Berkshire did not finish with a win, the girls had a good match. Captain Kyla Rabb '13 played against IMS' number one who she defeated in their first game only to struggle in the following three matches. At number two, Allie MacErlean '14 lost to her opponent in three games. Max had a powerful shot, and Allie fought to return his three-wall and corner shots. Captain Eliza Berg '13, who climbed from the number four position to number three after a challenge match the night before, lost her match in three games. Lucy Hollister '15 was flummoxed by her opponent's strong serve, and although she improved, she lost in three games. Similarly, Sydney Beldock '14 held her number five position on the Berkshire team but also had difficulty with her opponent's strong serves; she lost in three games. Number six was Charlotte Weil '13 who was playing her first match of the season after an earlier illness. Her match went to a tie-breaker in the fifth game where she just lost by a couple points. Twins to the end, Lilly Weil '13 also played a five-game match but fell in the fifth game. At this point in the Berkshire ladder, our luck changed, and we had a run of wins. Anna Heissenbuttel '13 was victorious in two games. Seeded at number nine, Ximenia Lascurain '13 won her first game, lost her second, and then won her third. Number ten, Caroline Welch '15 tried to remain undaunted by the similarities between her opponent and a younger brother, and won her match in the third game. Ana Alvarenga '15 moved up to number eleven and won her match in two games. V Former Jenalyn Rembish had a good match and also was victorious after the second game. New to the team, Karolin Kreke '13, after initially losing her first game, came back to win in the third. Madison Heilshorn '16 fought the good fight but unfortunately she suffered a setback. The girls are looking forward to their next match.
