ANNAPOLIS, Md. - All nine Navy squash players claimed 3-0 wins, as the 10th-ranked Midshipmen earned a 9-0 victory over No. 20 George Washington Wednesday evening at the Halsey Field House International Squash Courts in Annapolis. As Navy improves to 9-4 on the year, all nine wins for the Midshipmen have been by a 9-0 count.
The Mids were led off by top-seeded player Tucker George (West Hartford, Conn.) who remained unbeaten after defeating senior Jarryd Commerford, 9-2, 9-3, 9-2. George, who owns an impressive 55-25 career record, is now 10-0 this season as the No. 1 player on Navy's roster.

Rookie Allan Lutz (McLean, Va.) earned his 10th win of the season by way of a 9-0, 9-0, 9-5 victory over Colonial freshman Nick Gross at No. 4, while the Mids' other Allen, Allen Harley (Charleston, W.Va.), a junior, collected a 9-0, 9-2, 9-0 triumph over GW rookie Mike Bower at the No. 8 spot.
Midshipmen senior Matt Wiggins (Sour Lake, Texas) worked his way back in the top nine of the ladder and improved to 6-0 this season with a 9-1, 9-4, 9-5 victory over newcomer Peter Creech. Playing in just his second match back after an injury held him out of fall competition, senior Brian Hamilton (Lake Forest, Ill.) earned a 9-3, 9-3, 9-6 win over freshman Matt Nelson-Teutsch at the No. 7 position.
