ANNAPOLIS, Md. Three Quakers advanced to the second round of the Ramsey Division at the College Squash Association Individual Championship Friday. They will play again later today for a chance to make it to the quarterfinals.
Kristen Lange the nation’s second seed and Sydney Scott advanced to the round of 16 as expected. Meanwhile, Tara Chawla upset the tournament’s No. 8 seed 3-2 after being down two games to one.
Lange continued her quest for a championship in the Round of 16, where she defeated Dartmouth's Ashley Malenchak, 9-1, 9-2, 9-0. She will face Alisha Mashruwala of Harvard in the quarterfinals Saturday.
In the Round of 16, Scott fell to Harvard's June Tiong, 9-1, 9-10, 9-2, 9-4. Meanwhile, Chawla dropped her second round match to Neha Kumar of Princeton, 9-3, 9-1, 9-7.
Sophomore Britt Hebden fell to the No. 7 seed in five games. In the consolation, though, Hebden defeated Pamela Anckermann of Mount Holyoke, 9-0, 9-7, 9-7.
“Britt played well,” said head coach Jack Wyant, “but she came up against a tough opponent. Overall, this was a good start to the tournament.”
