One of the great things about playing squash at one of the U.S.’ top liberal arts academic institution is the wide array of course offerings. The current Smith College Squash Team has a wide range of interests from the sciences – to the arts. In this video clip we see Senior Mercedes Pepper chat about her final art design project – which is related to – squash!
Mercedes came out for the Smith College Squash Team when she took ESS 100, Introduction to Exercise & Sport Studies, with Smith Head Coach Tim Bacon. Mercedes had never played squash before, but learned what squash was during the course. Mercedes went on to play for the team for three years (Junior Year Abroad in Fiji!) and four years later, is getting ready to graduate in a couple of weeks.
