Trinity Men's Squash Returns To The Courts With Win At George Washington

Washington, D.C. - Five Bantams posted 3-0 wins to lead the visiting Trinity College Bantams to an 8-1 victory over the George Washington University Colonials in men's squash action this afternoon at Grossman Courts.  Trinity, ranked No. 2 in the nation, improves to 6-0 with its first match in exactly one month.  The No. 9-ranked Colonials fall to 2-4.  Trinity is back at it tomorrow at the United States Naval Academy at 5:30 p.m. 

Trinity senior tri-captain Andrew Lee (Kuala Lampur, Malaysia) dominated the No. 6 match with an 11-4, 11-1, 11-2 triumph.  Senior tri-captain Kush Kumar (New Delhi, India), classmate Yehia Essam (Brooklyn, N.Y.), junior Aryaman Adik (Mumbai, India), and sophomore Aly Tolba (Alexandria, Egypt) also swept their Colonial opponents.  Kumar's win at the No. 3 spot and fellow senior Thoboki Mohohlo's (Johannesburg, South Africa) 3-1 victory at the No. 4 position were the season debut for Trinity's two All-Americans from a last season.  Salim Khan won for George Washington, 3-1, over Trinity senior Michael Craig (Belfast, Northern Ireland), while Bantam rookie Miko Aijanan (Jarvenpaa, Finland) outlasted Mostafa Montaser, 3-2, at the top of the ladder.  Trinity first-year Ali El Toukhy (Cairo, Egypt) rounded out the scoring with a 3-1 win at No. 5.
