Feb. 6, 2019:  The Bronxville High School Squash team traveled this past weekend to the Trinity School in Hartford, Connecticut, to compete in the U.S. Squash High School National Team Championship. A total of 120 teams competed at the event and for the first time in its history, Bronxville competed in Division I, along with fifteen other top teams in the country. The Bronxville team had two seniors, Julia Curran and McKenna Stoltz, four juniors, Conner Stoltz, Harry Charlton, Justin Barr, and Robbie Cruikshank, and two freshmen, Molly Stoltz and Peter Vorbach.  

Bronxville came into the event seeded in the 13-16 grouping and faced the #2 seed and eventual runner-up in the first round. The team lost 7-0, but not before Conner, Harry, and McKenna took their matches to five games at the #1, #2, and #7 positions. In the second round, Bronxville upset Avon Old Farms, a 5-8 seed, with wins by Molly, Julia, Robbie, and Peter in the #4 to #7 positions. Molly came back from a 0-2 deficit to capture the win for the team. In its third and fourth matches, Bronxville lost in 4-3 nail-biters to teams from California and Philadelphia. In the match against Crystal Springs of California, Bronxville won in the top and bottom with wins from Conner, Robbie, and McKenna but lost in positions #2 to #5, two in close five-game matches. In the match against Springside Chestnut Hill Academy of Philadelphia, Bronxville had wins from Conner, Harry, and Justin at the top but lost in positions #4 to #7, again with two of the matches going five games.  

Bronxville finished in twelfth place overall and #1 among public schools in the country. They were happy to finish above their seeding and, given their close matches with all the teams, are excited about their prospects for next year. Amy Charlton, one of the parents attending, noted that Bronxville was the only public school in the event and one of only two schools that have girls on their team. “The team faced high-level tournament players at every spot on the roster and should be incredibly proud of how they played.” Shelia Stoltz, another parent, added, “So exciting to watch such an accomplished group of athletes come together and be the best public school squash team in the country.”

The Bronxville team is a member of the Fairwest Public School Squash Association and was league champion this year, winning all of it matches. The team was coached by Supreet Singh, head pro at the Bronxville Field Club, who, along with Tunde Ajagbe, has been training the team.  

Charlton noted that a majority of the team plays with the Field Club coaches year-round, and the team is lucky to have them as coaches. She also offered special thanks to the parents and chaperones who attended, as well as high school athletic director Karen Peterson and the Bronxville School, all vital to making the program a success.
