Event Recap:


On Saturday a mix of Berkshire girls junior varsity and third's squash traveled to Farmington, CT to face Miss Porter's School.  For most of the third's players it was their first match and they represented Berkshire in fine form. In the team scoring matches, Hallie Mather, new to the sport, dispatched her opponent in straight sets.  Blake Polizzi was victimized by mean drop shots from her Miss Porter's counterpart and fell 3 games to 1.  Madison Heilshorn, an up and coming freshmen, lent strong support to her teammates between games and also beat her opponent in straight sets.  Karolin Kreke was complimented by many onlookers for her dogged tenacity, running down shots that looked like sure points for her opponent.  For her efforts, she earned a 3 games to none victory.  In the third spot on the ladder, Jenalyn Rembish settled in after dropping the first game to win 3 games to 1, securing a match victory for Berkshire.  However, that didn't stop both Ana Alvarenga and Caroline Welch from leaving it all on the court in their respective matches.  In particular, Ana had multiple games that went deep, including one that took 17 points for Ana to finally win.  Wearing out her opponent, she earned a 3 games to 1 victory.  And in the top game, Caroline Welch battled with her Miss Porter's counterpart, winning 3-2 in an exciting match with a crowd of players, parents and coaches looking on.  In the exhibition matches Berkshire had similar success, with Esther Chen, Juliet Duplessis and Mary Gao each winning 2 games to none. Amy Rowland, using a new found serve, went to three games with her opponent, winning 2-1.  Noemi Ogaz bounced back from a shaky first game to pull close in the second, but ultimately fell 2-0.  All in all it was a great day for the Berkshire Bears that left all with satisfaction and motivation to improve moving forward.
