Dragon Doc Results

Thank you for being a part of a very special weekend.  We saw the continual rise of the juniors as they march through the various skill levels, the outstanding play of home touring pro Reuben Phillips, and many kind touchpoint moments between players, families, friends.

The 2017 DragonDoc, compliments of Dr. Gary Myerson and Dr. Pradeep Sinha, proved to be one of our best “major” events ever.

The play was deep and competitive, and in all cases, sportsmanly.

Final results:
2017 DragonDoc Pro:  Reuben Phillips ENG/ATL  def. Alex Ingham ENG/STL, 4,(9),6,7
6.0s:  Will Grady, ATL def. … Continue Reading ››

Westminster Season Summary in Vishan’s words

In the 2016-2017 season, the Westminster Boys experienced the best squash season in the programs history. The boys’ first trip of the season to Mercersburg Academy ended up with a 9-0 win over MICDS, 7-2 over Canisius, 8-1 over Mercersburg, and a trophy in Coach Byrd’s hand. Personally, playing #1, this tournament posed a challenge, losing 2/3 of our team’s losses. After handily winning the Mercersburg team tournament, the boys were poised for Nationals some two weeks later. As repetitive as they were, we knew the daily practices of boast and drive, rotating … Continue Reading ››
