Jeffs 11th at Howe Cup Nationals

February 24, 2005

PRINCETON, NJ - The 11th-ranked Amherst College women’s squash team finished 11th at the Howe Cup Nationals, hosted by Princeton University over the weekend. Playing in the Kurtz Cup for teams ranked ninth through 16th nationally, the Jeffs topped Colby College in the opening round, 7-2, fell to Cornell University in the semifinals, 9-0, and rebounded to edge St. Lawrence University, 5-4, to finish their season at 12-8.

Senior co-captains Ali Gibbs (Greenwich, CT) and Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA) were the lone Jeffs to win all three matches on the weekend. Gibbs was dominant, posting 3-0 victories in all three matches, while Harmeling nearly swept each of her opponents, blanking Colby’s Stacy Petro and Cornell’s Mairin Barnes, and taking a 3-1 win over St. Lawrence’s Katia Stipinovich.

Amherst wraps up its season Friday through Sunday, March 4-6, at the College Squash Association Individual Championships, hosted by Dartmouth College.
