“We are excited and grateful in equal measure for these contests. Excited to experience the competition, intensity, and sportsmanship that are at the heart of intercollegiate squash. And grateful to all of our colleagues in UVA Athletics and at the Naval Academy who have worked so hard to give us this opportunity to play. We owe a huge thanks to the Sports Medicine Departments at both schools. And I would like to single out our head trainer, Caroline Fitch, for her tireless work in keeping us all healthy and safe this season. Our matches against Navy have historically been some of our hardest-fought and most-honestly contested. I know we are going to enjoy the rivalry, even more, this time around. And it is going to mean a great deal to our seniors to be able to turn in at least one more weekend’s worth of competition on our home courts.”
