Squashed competition

There was nothing off the wall about the women's squash team's steady string of victories on the weekend.

The squad dominated the opposition at the McGill Tournament – decimating Queen's, Ryerson, McGill and McMaster all by a score of 6-0 and toppling the University of Toronto 5-1.

Western's five victories gave them the tournament championship.

The team's domination of the tournament looks like a sign of things to come this season. Western is coming off of last year's championship and judging by the scores on the weekend, appear primed for another clean sweep.

Head coach Leah Bishop said a particular group really stood out. "The rookies had an extremely strong showing at the tournament."

This bodes well for the future of squash at Western, which Bishop said is in capable hands.

"We won the gold at the Ontario University Athletics Finals last year," Bishop said. "And it doesn't appear like we are going anywhere. The future is bright for Mustang squash."

The squad is preparing for their next encounter set to take place at Queen's University on Saturday, Nov. 10.
