The girls' varsity squash team fell to host Lawrenceville 8-1 in a Mid-Atlantic Prep League contest December 10.
The Big Red swept the #2-#9 matches by 3-0 scores, but the one bright spot for the Blue Storm was the victory at #1 for Emilia Falconi '23. Falconi won her match 3-0; possibly the first time in history that Mercersburg's #1 has defeated Lawrenceville's #1.
Head coach Mike Sweeney commented, "Through an impressive display of power and touch, Emilia made the court seem big for her Lawrenceville opponent, forcing her to scrape balls off the side wall and stretch for soft drop shots."
Mercersburg (4-2 overall, 0-1 MAPL) will host Nichols School (Buffalo, NY) on Saturday, January 7 at 10 a.m.
