Final Stats

CHICAGO, Ill. — The 14th-ranked Navy squash team (2-1) earned victories in two of its three matches this weekend as it opened the 2017-18 campaign in the Windy City.  The Mids captured 9-0 sweeps over Northwestern and the University of Chicago, but dropped a 7-2 decision to #13 Western Ontario.

Senior team captain Jack Herold was one of two Navy players to successfully complete the weekend undefeated.  Herold, a Chicago native, scored a 3-0 victory over Northwestern’s Mike Leonard in Friday’s opener before rallying to win the final two games and a 3-2 decision over Western Ontario’s David Mill.  He closed out the weekend with an 11-3, 11-2, 11-2 win over UChicago’s Tim Hoang.

Meanwhile, rookie Jack Lentz (Philadelphia, Pa.) saw his first collegiate action and represented the Mids at the #2 position.  Lentz posted an 11-8, 11-4, 11-3 victory over Joseph Kim of Northwestern in his first collegiate match and like Herold, was forced to come from behind to pick up a 3-2 win over Western Ontario’s Akasham Rajagopaul.  His final match of the weekend was against UChicago’s Hojung Kim whom he defeated, 3-0.

The remaining seven players on the ladder managed 2-1 marks over the weekend, including second-year standout Michael Kacergis (Malvern, Pa.), who earned the right to play the #1 position after winning last week’s Barb Tournament.  He nearly pulled off the sweep, but dropped the final game of a five-set loss to Western Ontario’s Matthew Henderson.

Also making the trip home to Chicago was senior Sam McCartney who defeated Northwestern’s Vis Kan, 3-0, and UChicago’s Jay Moden 3-1.

The Midshipmen return to action when they play host to the first of two round robin tournaments next Friday through Sunday.  Navy will play Washington (12:00 pm) and Fordham (7:00 pm) on Friday, Boston U. (9:30 am) and Johns Hopkins (2:30 pm) on Saturday and Georgetown (9:30 am) on Sunday.
