ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy squash team (12-0) went undefeated at the Navy Veterans Weekend Tournament this weekend in Halsey Field House. The 15th-ranked Midshipmen posted wins over Swarthmore (9-0), Georgetown (9-0), Kenyon (9-0), Hobart (9-0) and Washington (9-0). Navy also earned a forfeit victory over Northwestern. Hobart is ranked No. 26 in the latest Dunlop Men's College Squash rankings and Georgetown is No. 28.

"Our players played very well," head coach Craig Dawson said. "We rotated our lineup throughout the day to give some of our players rest and we beat a very good Georgetown team. I also thought Andrew McGuinness played his best match of the season against Hobart."

McGuinness, a freshman from Merion Station, Pa., went 4-0 over the weekend in Navy's No. 1 slot. McGuinness impressed Dawson with his 11-3, 11-7, 11-3 victory over Hobart's top man, Corey Kabot.

McGuinness defeated Tarit Rao-Chakravorti of Swarthmore, 11-5, 11-5, 11-6, knocked off Nicholas Kourides of Georgetown, 11-1, 11-3, 11-2 and also beat Kenyon's Spencer Carlson, 11-2, 11-3, 11-9.

Junior Hunter Bouchard (Greenville, Del.) was also 4-0 over the weekend. Bouchard went 3-0 playing in the No. 2 slot and stepped in for McGuinness at No. 1 against Washington, earning an 11-4, 11-4, 11-6 decision over Johann Huang.

Junior David Koenig (Cincinnati, Ohio) played in all five matches for Navy, going 5-0. Koenig won three games at No. 5 and one each at No. 6 and No. 7. He is now 10-0 on the season.

Senior team captain John Tracey (Owings Mills, Md.) went 3-0 to improve his career record to 42-3. Tracey's career winning percentage of .933 is currently the best ever at Navy, among players with at least 30 wins.

The Mids will next host No. 7 Dartmouth on November 19.
