Mattsson, McGuinness Capture Intercollegiate Doubles Title

Men's doubles draw

Mixed doubles draw

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Just like the women's side, men's squash was well represented at the 2011 Intercollegiate Doubles Championships this past weekend at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. Over this past weekend, Trevor McGuinness' doubles resume just continued to grow as he captured the men's draw with fellow captain Thomas Mattsson and then went on to capture the mixed doubles with Colleen Fehm. Penn made it a clean sweep of all three draws with Nabilla Ariffin and Pia Trikha capturing the women's doubles championship.

The men's side entered three pairings into a draw of 20. With the big draw, the second-seeded pairing of McGuinness and Mattsson would receive a bye into the Round of 16 where they would be joined by two other Penn pairings that opened with Round of 32 wins.

Sophomore Daniel Judd played doubles with Derek Chilvers and that pairing made quick work of their first match. They took the first and third games by convincing 15-7 scores, but won the second game by a dominating 15-2 final. Freshmen Oscar Mattsson and Jack Maine also joined the Round of 16 with their opening victory. The freshmen jumped out quickly with a 15-13 win in the first game, but were tied when they dropped the second game 15-12. Tied at one game each, the younger Mattsson and Maine won the third and fourth games, 15-9 and 15-10 to advance.

In the Round of 16, the Mattsson brothers would meet on the court. This time, it was senior Thomas and McGuinness that would have the upper hand in the 15-4, 15-6, and 15-9 win to move onto the quarterfinals past the younger Mattsson and Maine. Judd and Chilvers would end their day 1-1 after falling to the top-seeded pairing. The duo played a competitive match throughout, but the top seeds would avoid the early upset bid from the Penn sophomores.

The quarterfinals saw another impressive performance from the pairing of Mattsson and McGuinness with another three-game victory, 15-4, 15-8, and 15-5. In the semifinals, Mattsson and McGuinness would have to work a little bit harder, but still came away with the three-game victory, 15-9, 15-14, and 15-10, over the third-seeded pairing to move onto the doubles finals.

In the finals, the second-seeded pairing from Penn met up with the fifth-seeded pairing who had already notched two upsets earlier in the draw. The Penn duo would not let them have their third as they got out to the early lead, taking the first game 15-5 and followed that up with a 15-12 win in the second game to put themselves on the brink of the championship. Having three games to capture the men's championship, Mattsson and McGuinness would need just one as they took the third game 15-7. The win for McGuinness and Mattsson capped off the weekend that saw the two win all 12 of the games they played together.

In the mixed doubles portion of the draw, McGuinness would enter the draw with Fehm. McGuinness and Fehm earned the top seed and would receive a bye to the semifinal round and join Lindsay Wong and Judd in that round. Playing just to the best of three games in the mixed doubles, Wong and Judd made quick time in their quarterfinal match, winning 15-8 and 15-6 to advance.

The final Penn pairing in the mixed doubles was another pair of freshmen in Lyles Swift-Farley and Michael Mutscheller. The freshmen pairing would get out in front early with a 15-8 win in the first game, but two close games in the second and third, 15-11 and 15-10, would knock out the young pairing.

In the semifinals, both of the matches involving Penn pairings ended with 15-4, 15-7 scores, but it would be a split for Penn in the win/loss column. Fehm and McGuinness came out on top in their semifinal, but Wong and Judd came out on the wrong side of the decision this time after their quarterfinal victory.

In the finals, McGuinness just continued to add to his impressive doubles resume as he and Fehm took home the championship with a two-game victory. The duo jumped out early with a 15-11 win in the first game before sealing the championship with a 15-14 edging over the second seeds in the tournament. With the victories in both men's and mixed doubles, McGuinness won all 16 games that he and his partners played on the weekend.

After getting some early season action in on the doubles court, Penn will get into traditional college singles format when they take part in the Ivy League scrimmages November 12 and 13. The first team match of the season will be November 30 when they take on Drexel.
