Squash - Boys, Varsity
2018 - 2019
Head Coach: Stephen Downes
Tabor’s squash tradition dates from 1928, when Stone Gymnasium was constructed with four American squash courts. Since then Tabor has established a tradition of team success and friendly competition that today fills the courts with players who range from beginning to advanced. Tabor offers three levels of squash instruction as a winter sport to both girls and boys, and each level receives attention and encouragement. Boys varsity players compete in the New England Interscholastic Tournament, as well as the National High School Tournament each year. Junior varsity players enjoy a competitive schedule and train to master basic skills of the game. Third team players learn the same skills as varsity player at an elementary level, and form a ladder for interscholastic competition.
Our boys program includes over 50 players this season who will develop squash skills, sportsmanship, and team spirit, at levels from beginner to advanced. This year’s varsity starting eight players will include six who have learned the game at Tabor, a credit to their dedication to the sport. Our top player from last year represented his team and school by winning the Arif Sarfraz Interscholastic individual championship in February, where he and his teammates finished 10th in the New England team competition. Seven members of our varsity team members will travel to Cairo, Egypt over Thanksgiving vacation this fall to condition and train, see the pyramids, and enjoy the special team experience together that competitive sports offer. As an ISL member, Tabor looks forward to joining the Jackson Tournament at Brooks in December, as well as to playing a competitive schedule at each level. We take pride in each of our players and our squash tradition. If you are considering Tabor for your school, we invite you to contact us.
