CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia men’s squash head coach Mark Allen announced today (May 6) four recruits who will be joining the team as freshmen for the 2024-25 season: Ewan Harris (Toronto, Canada), Isaac Mitchell (Baltimore, Md.), Nathan Rosenzweig (Silver Spring, Md.) and Juan Jose Torres (Bogota, Colombia).

“We are proud and excited to welcome such a strong class of recruits to UVA this fall. This group of players will arrive with a wealth of on-court experience derived from competition at the international level and truly exception talent across the board. We are honestly thrilled for September, when we can officially welcome all four of our incoming first years to McArthur Squash Center and start in on what promises to be a tremendous season for UVA Squash.”

Ewan Harris hails from Toronto, Canada, but attended Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton, Florida, where he played at positions two and three on the ladder for the last two years. The Saint Andrew’s varsity squash team has been ranked in the top three nationally over the last two years, winning the 2024 U.S. Squash High School National Championship, edging five-time champion Brunswick in the final to raise the Justi Cup. Harris contributed a 3-1 win at No. 2 in the final. He competed in the 2023 US Junior U19 Open, making the Round of 16 and he helped lead Canada’s Junior National Team to a fifth-place finish at the 2023 Pan American Games. Harris is currently ranked #2 in the nation in the U-19 age group and was runner-up in that age group at the 2024 Canadian Junior Closed Championships.

Isaac Mitchell is currently ranked #19 in the U.S. in the U-19 division and has achieved national rankings in the top ten in every age group. As a senior, team captain, and top seed for the Gilman School, Mitchell helped lead the Greyhounds to their fourth consecutive MIAA title. He also claimed the league’s individual singles title, going 3-0 at the MIAA Individual Championships. Mitchell was the recipient of the U.S. Squash Junior Sportsmanship Award in 2020. Given annually to a single player in each age division, the award recognizes “outstanding sportsmanship” and “a commitment to the principles of fair play on and off the court.” As a member of the Junior National Team, Mitchell has represented the U.S. in international play, including the 2023 Pan American Junior Games and the Battle of the Border in 2022.

Nathan Rosenzweig has been ranked in the top five in the United States in both the U-19 and U-17 divisions and is a two-time US Junior High School All-American, as well as a member of the Junior National Team. Rosenzweig was a three-time letter winner in squash at St. Paul’s School (N.H.) and was named team MVP in all three seasons of competition for the Big Red. His career marks at St. Paul’s include a 78.9 win percentage, a cumulative record of 20-8, and three appearances on the All-NEPSAC first team. In independent and team tournament play, Rosenzweig finished in the round of sixteen at both the 2021 and 2023 US Junior Opens and represented the United States in the 2022 Battle of the Border event; he will also represent the U.S. at the 2024 World Junior Squash Championships, which will take place in August in Houston, Texas. He was St. Paul’s Junior Squash title winner in 2021-22 and the Senior Championship winner in 2022-23 and 2023-24. Prior to taking up full-time residency in the United State, Rosenzweig lived in Hong Kong for 13 years, representing the territory at the 2019 Asian Junior Championships.
