When I hear the word “squash”, the first thing I automatically think of is that tasty, yellow vegetable commonly found at summer barbecues. If “squash” as a sport even crosses my mind, I am left wondering– Who still plays this game? and What does it even entail? Enter– the men of Trinity College.
The Bantams, Trinity’s squash team, have opened my eyes to a world I never knew existed. Having recently won their 13th consecutive national title, in a match versus Yale, the team has racked up a streak of 244 consecutive wins (if only Caltech had such a winning streak!) Squash players from all over the globe wish to come to Providence, RI and to play for Trinity.
While watching this video, I was amazed by the display of passion for a sport I had barely heard of. The team has certainly earned every ounce of praise and recognition their hard work has afforded them.
