Kardon

BRUNSWICK, Maine – Max Kardon ’15 picked up a win at No. 5 but it was all the success the Amherst College men’s squash team could muster during an 8-1 loss at Bowdoin College Wednesday.

Kardon encountered little resistance in his 3-0 (11-4, 11-6, 11-6) win over Reid Wilson ’14, but he would be the only Jeff to find the win column despite several tight matches. In the No. 3 slot, Scott DeSantis ’15 took the third game and nearly won a thrilling opener with William Fantini ’13 but eventually fell, 3-1 (14-12, 11-7, 5-11, 11-5).

In the next position down, Alex Southmayd ’15 also won a game, taking the first stanza from Matt Cooper ’16 before dropping the next three (8-11, 11-9, 11-9, 11-6). The final Jeff to avoid a shutout was Kelvin Chen ’16, who took the second game of his 3-1 (11-8, 7-11, 11-7, 11-6) loss to Alex Reisley ’16 at No. 9.

Atop the Amherst lineup, Noah Browne ’16 played two tight games in his 3-0 (11-5, 11-9, 11-8) loss to Andrew Hilboldt ’13 but David Kerr ’14 couldn’t keep things as close at No. 2 against Stephan Danyluk ’14 (11-3, 11-7, 11-3).

In the eighth position, Rodrigo Miranda ’14 started things off in exciting fashion against Will Winmill ’14 but fell, 3-0 (13-11, 11-6, 11-5). In spots six and seven, Stephen Cacouris ’16 and Jake Albert ’15 challenged at times but were swept by Max Bearse ’15 (11-6, 11-8, 11-7) and Andrew Ward ’15 (11-8, 11-4, 11-9), respectively.

The Jeffs will play six matches this weekend while hosting the Pioneer Valley Invitational, beginning with a 3 p.m. contest against Haverford College on Friday, Jan. 18.
