This past weekend nearly 300 students from the country’s 12 NUSEA member programs participated in the 10th Annual Urban Individual Nationals at Williams College. The students slept in Williams dormitories, ate in its dining hall, and competed in the 10-court Simon Squash Center. Two new programs participated for the first time, Beyond Walls Twin Cities from Minneapolis-St. Paul and the Santa Barbara School of Squash. Reyna Pacheco of San Diego’s Access Youth Academy emerged victorious in the GU19 division, and Andrew Cadienhead of the Bronx’s CitySquash won the BU19 title. Squash Haven earned its first two titles by winning the BU15 and GU15 divisions. For more results, see below.
