California was represented by three women’s teams playing in the A, B, and D divisions of this years Howe Cup, hosted in Washington DC at the brand new facility Squash on Fire.
Libby Eyre, Jesse Pacheco, Yarden Okinak, Pia Trikha, and Alexandra Sawin representing the Olympic club placed second in the A division.
Rohini Gupta, Astrid Terry, Sara Barrett, Elizabeth Young, and Jocelyn Feliciano of the Golden Girls B team fought bravely in the quarterfinals, narrowly loosing to the Boston Queen B’s who went on to win their division.
The California Golden Girls C team had 3 NorCal players, Kelly McKinley, Nancy Iskander and Carrie Kahn who were complemented by 2 “orphan” players from the east coast. The team was knocked out early but went on to play well and placed first in the consolation division.
Given the ever growing women’s squash community here in Norcal we hope to field more teams next year.
