Smith Squash Finishes on High Note

Smith top squash player Shanita Williams ’10 in action.

The Smith Squash Team was treated to an online talk last weekend by Jeanne Blasberg ’87, the president of U.S. Squash, a nationwide organization that supports the racquet sport.

Blasberg addressed the team and others gathered following a squash tournament on November 22 in Ainsworth Gym, from off-campus via a live Internet videoconference. Spectators gathered on one of the gym’s squash courts to see her talk.

“Jeanne is an elite squash player herself, so she was the perfect speaker for our event,” said Tim Bacon, lecturer in exercise and sport studies and head coach of Smith Squash. “One of her missions as president [of U.S. Squash] is to support the growth of women’s squash in the U.S.”

The Smith Squash Team finished in second place in points at this year’s Women’s College Squash Championship tournament. The Mount Holyoke College team finished in first place for the second straight year.
