Reflecting and Moving On from Concord Academy

After more than six wonderful years, I chose to step aside this year as the Head Squash Coach at Concord Academy. It has been a joy, privilege and an honor to work in the Eastern Independent League, alongside Dana Hall School, Newton Country Day School, Portsmouth Abbey School and Winsor School as well as the broader New England Interscholastic Squash Association.

The 2013-14 Concord Academy boys varsity squash team had a respectable season with an even regular season record. The team earned a place in the B Division at the New England Interscholastic Squash Association Championships held at Pomfret School in Pomfret, CT. The coaching staff was proud to say that that, win or lose, our players gave all they could during their matches. All of our players showed great improvement this year, which bodes well for future teams.

Meanwhile, the 2013-2014 Concord Academy girls varsity squash team had a great season despite the fact that our competitors often outmatched us. Our main goal during every match was never to quit and to run down every single ball. The coaching staff was proud to say that this goal was met the majority of the time and that, win or lose, our players maintained their focus and determination. The girls squash team surprised the coaches with thank you gifts, as above. Many thanks to Concord Academy for a meaningful experience. Onwards we go!
