ANNAPOLIS, Md. —  The Navy squash team pushed its winning streak to five in a row on Saturday, defeating Bucknell, Swarthmore and Boston University all by 9-0 scores.  The Mids opened their season Friday evening with wins over Virginia and Bard.

“We played probably our best match of the weekend in our nightcap against Boston University,” said Navy head coach Craig Dawson.  “This was the first time we’ve played against Boston University and I was very impressed with their talent level.  We also played a much-improved Bucknell team to start the day.  I would say this is the best Bucknell team we’ve played against since starting our series.”

Navy seniors John Richey (West Hartford, Conn.) and Hunter Bouchard (Greenville, Del.) topped the 70-win milestone with wins in the last two days.  Richey, the Mids’ team captain, reached the 70-win marker Friday evening, but added three more wins on Saturday including an 11-6, 11-3, 11-5 win over Henry Gadsden of Bucknell in the opener.  Bouchard, meanwhile, owns a 71-26 career record and grabbed his 70th collegiate win behind an 11-6, 11-2, 11-5 victory over Swarthmore’s Klarissa Khor.

A year ago then-rookies Andrew McGuinness (Merion Station, Pa.) and Hunter Abrams (Wilmington, Del.) just missed the 20-win milestone with 19 and 18 wins, respectively.  The two are off to a solid start with matching 5-0 records with McGuinness scoring his fifth win of the season over Boston University’s Jacob Roscoe in three, while Abrams picked up his fifth win of 2012 by giving up just one point in a 3-0 win over Lu Quan Tan of Boston University.

Also winning three matches on the afternoon were senior Cotter Walker (Orlando, Fla.), sophomores John Hsu (Manhassett, N.Y.) and Jim Kacergis (Malvern, Pa.) and freshmen Mitch Bottini (New Hamburg, N.Y.) and Bill Kacergis (Malvern, Pa.).

The Mids will face Sewanee (11:00 am) and Washington (1:00 pm) on Sunday in the final day of the Navy Squash Invitational.
