Trinity Men's Squash Coaches, Players And Alums Featured In Media

Hartford, Conn. -Trinity College men's squash sophomore Thoboki Mohohlo (Hartford, Conn.) was featured in his local media after great success in both the GrowthPoint South African National Championships and Jarvis/Kaplan Cups this summer.  Fellow Bantam sophomore Michael Craig (Belfast, Northern Ireland) was earlier featured in the Irish Echo for his fantastic play during the final week of the 2016-17 season, as he led the Bantams to a 5-4 win at top-ranked Harvard and a 7-2 triumph over No. 4-ranked St. Lawrence.  Assistant Coach Chris Binnie '09 had recently been profiled in a Q&A in Squash Magazine for his play on the professional circuit and internationally, while Bantam Head Coach Paul Assaiante was a guest on both the podcast and on the Finding Mastery podcast hosted by Michael Gervais in the fall.  

Several Bantam men's squash alums received media coverage on for their impressive performances in the Big Apple Open in New York City this autumn, as six of eight quarterfinals teams included former Bantams.  Manek Mathur '09 and his partner, Damien Mudge, captured the title, while Andres Vargas '11, Randy Lim '10, Baset Chaudhry '10, Bernardo Samper '05, Jacques Swanepoel '06, Shaun Johnstone '07, Michael Ferrerira '04, and Yvain Badan '06 were all quarterfinalists.  

In his 24th year at Trinity, Assaiante guided the Bantams to a 16-1 record, an 11th consecutive NESCAC Championship title.  Trinity is the top seed in this weekend's College Squash Association (CSA) National Team Championships at Harvard, as the Bantams vie for their 16th national crown in the last 19 years.  Assaiante also coached Team USA to three gold medals in the Pan American Federation Squash Games in September as the U.S. Head Coach and was inducted into the U.S. Squash Hall of Fame in October.
