Event Recap:

Berkshire 1 - Porters 6
Berkshire 0 - Hopkins 7

The girls varsity squash team headed to the lovely facility at Miss Porter's School for a double-header against the host team and Hopkins.  When the dust had settled, Berkshire left Farmington having played some quality squash but coming in third.

In the opening match, Porter's proved very strong at the top.  Maisie Noesen '13, Chase Gerber '13, Michaelann Denton '14, Clementina Davila '14 and Edeline Loh '14 played hard but fell in straight games.  In the next four positions, Berkshire was much more competitive. Olivia Silverman '15 battled back for a 3-2 victory, and Allie Brazo '14, Serena Menges '14 and Alexis Rivera '16 also made it to fifth games but came up short in the final frame.  Chelsea Leeds '15 fell in straight games at #10.

Tired but undaunted, Berkshire hoped to rebound in the second match.  Hopkins School had other plans, however, and their determination and improvement were evident from top to bottom.  Noesen grabbed the first game and Brazo the first two;  Davila and Loh managed to get to extra points but no closer; other than that, it was all maroon on the afternoon. 

Some team singing and a quick Chipotle stop helped the girls recover their good spirits in time for the holiday open houses.  Coach Kohlhepp, who was headed for dorm duty in Buck at the time of this account,  saw some positives on the day: "The Bears played hard," he noted. "They are also starting to do a better job of volleying, which will be essential to keeping the ball out of the back corners."  Asked what they might improve on, the coach indicated that movement and shot selection were inconsistent.  Kohlhepp noted that conditioning and toughness were aspects to develop further in light of the fact that Berkshire won only one out of five fifth games.
