Navy Weekend, BC and MIT

BU Squash started off the season with a round robin held at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. BU began the round robin facing off against home team Johns Hopkins. A tough opponent, BU lost this one, 2 – 7, but managed to win two games with strong performances by freshman Bonner and Lavoie. Next BU played the University of Minnesota for the first time in club history and won a resounding 7 – 2. The match was marred by club captain Ben Bunjapamai’s foot injury acting up and forcing a forfeit. The last game of the day was against Home team Navy A. Always a very challenging opponent, the terriers put up a tough fight but conceded all games to the Naval Academy’s varsity team. BU started Saturday off with a game against the University of Richmond and clinched an early win with the game score being 6 – 3. For the last game of the Round Robin the terriers sat their number 1 and 2 due to injury and played an incredibly fit and well-conditioned Navy B team. After many close and long drawn out matches the terriers lost by a narrow margin of 5 – 4.

The second match of the season pitted rival Boston University and Boston College against each other for the first time this season. The terriers were off to a good start and seemed to be headed to victory, however, after a few incredibly close matches BU lost to BC 2 – 7. Strong performances by Co-captain Jack Chambers and Freshman Joel Lavoie helped the terriers clinch two wins. The terriers were missing Bonner and Chen, numbers 2 and 6 respectively, due to injury.

The third match of the season so far saw the Terriers playing MIT. The results very disappointing game for BU, who have not seen such bad match scores against MIT in recent history. Nick Carlson playing number 9 brought in the only win for BU.

The club’s next math will be on the 20th of November against Northeastern University.

BU Finishes #34 Nationally, #6 Club

Captains Ben Bunjapamai and Jacob Roscoe with Senior Asa Tyler holding the Runners Up Trophy for the Chaffee Division

The Boston University Squash Team capped off its most successful season with a strong showing at the CSA National Team Championships held at Yale, finishing as runners up in the Chaffee Cup after falling 6-3 against Boston College.

Arriving at Yale University after a 3 hour drive, #35 BU pulled out a 5-4 win against #38 University of Washington at 7pm. The match was well played and a good start to the tournament.

On the Saturday at 12pm, the Terriers pulled through with another 5-4 win – this time against #39 Denison University with numbers 5 through 9 having solid wins. This win set up a Boston Showdown against crosstown rivals and top seeded #33 Boston College.

Following the first round of matches BU trailed BC 2-1, having collected a win from Map Teeravithayapinyo’s 3 game victory at #6. In the second round of matches #8 Humzah Mahmood pulled through with a 5-game win. Unfortunately, trailing 4-2 BU managed only one more win through Allan Chen, also in a five game match at #7. At #1 Ben Bunjapamai dropped a 3-1 match against a very strong opponent, while #5 senior Asa Tyler lost a 5 game match despite having held a 2-1 lead.

Overall, BU has finished a very strong season having finished the previous season at #50 and two divisions lower. The terriers will graduate only Asa Tyler, who has been a crucial part of the team’s leadership. We wish him all the best in the future!
