PRINCETON, N.J.- Six members of the University of Pennsylvania women’s squash team competed in the Constable Invitational Saturday at Princeton. Freshmen Sydney Scott and Kristen Lange both advanced to the semifinals, which take place Sunday.
Lange was victorious over Princeton’s Casey Riley in the opening round. She will play Amanda Siebrt of Princeton Sunday. Scott downed JoAnn Lee of Trinity in the first round and then teammate Paula Pearson in the quarterfinals. Scott plays Neha Kumar of Princeton in the semis Sunday.
“We’re used to playing each other in challenge matches at practice, so that prepared us for our match today,” said Pearson.
Before falling to Scott, Pearson defeated Pam Anckermann in the opening round. Fellow senior Radhika Ahluwalia won her first-round match over Princeton’s Carly Grabowski.
“We’re at such an advantage playing in tough matches this weekend,” said Ahluwalia.
