Last month, four Mission Squash Scholars travelled to the Urban Individual Squash Championships, held at Williams College in Massachusetts.
The tournament is run by the National Urban Squash and Education Association (NUSEA) which acts as the umbrella organization for 20+ urban squash programs around the world.
The Urban Individuals Championship is one of the most coveted events in urban squash with over 400 students from all over the US taking part each year. Based at Williams College and Amherst College in Massachusetts, the event was the first exposure of national level squash for some of the selected Mission Squash Scholars.
Among other events, our students and staff had the opportunity to network with admissions staff from some of the most prestigious private High Schools in the country and show off their academic prowess as well as their squash talents.
We would like to wish a hearty congratulations to the scholars who represented Mission Squash last month. They truly put forth their best effort, attitude, and determination. We couldn’t be more proud!
