Feb. 7, 2018: The Bronxville Middle School Squash team won both Division I and II titles at the Fairwest Middle School Squash Championship held at Chelsea Piers in Connecticut this past Saturday.
This is the seventh year in a row that Bronxville has won Division I, which is truly impressive. The members of the winning team, which was managed by Marisa Sheumack, were Charlie Clifford, Ronin Kaplan, Molly Stoltz, Thomas Sheumack, and Peter Vorbach.
This is the fifth year in a row that Bronxville has won Division II, which is also a testament to the depth of talent on the Bronxville team. Amy Wiser served as the Team Manager and the members of this winning team were Brooks Clifford, Ellie Clifford, Drew Doyle, Theo Evison, and Rustin Wiser.
Bronxville also had a team in Division III this year. This team was managed by Jeff Hine and the team members were Dya Acharjee, Scarlett Hine, Andrew Mager, Pierce Patterson, and Matthew Rodriguez. "I'm very proud of this group" said Manager Hine, "the team played so well and we took our final match to the last game of the last match."
“This was a really nice ending to a very successful middle school squash season,” commented Sheila Stoltz, mother of Molly. “Bronxville should be extremely proud of its middle school squash program. It dominates its peer schools and has one team that is fourth in the nation. Really impressive!”
Bronxville is a member of the Fairwest Public School Squash Association, which was founded in 2008 to enable public school students in Westchester and Fairfield Counties to play squash in a competitive interscholastic environment. Other participants in the championship included teams from Briarcliff, Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Rye, and Westport.
