On Saturday, October 18th 16 Smith College students (and 1 alum in the Pro Division) showed up for the 2008 Smith College Racketlon – and everyone had a great time playing ping-pong, badminton, squash and tennis at Smith College’s great indoor faciltities!
Team 1 (Julia, Su, Sarah, Jess) won three of the four disciplines to win the tournament (56-39; 15-5,15-8,11-15,15-11; so +17) in the final against Team 3 (Mercedes, Jasmine, Guyman, Shanita). In the Pro Division Englander Andy Stenson narrowly beat local Smith Alum Erin Robson, losing to her in squash (15-11, 15-2, 12-15, ret.), before succumbing to host Coach Tim Bacon in a closely fought final (5-15, 15-5, 15-4, 11-15; +7).
All participants got a very cool t-shirt! Contact Tim if you would like to purchase one at the cost price of $7.50.
You can watch some of the play on the Smith Squash YouTube TV Channel:
