Squash Season 2023

The 2023 Squash season marks another incredible season for the Belmont Hill Squash program. They finished with a record of 12-3 and once again proved themselves to be the dominant force in the ISL. Under the leadership of Coach Brownell and Senior Captain Aaron Green ‘23, the team went undefeated in ISL matches, thus winning the ISL and extending their record of 14 undefeated seasons in the last 15 seasons. Although the successful record may not show it, Coach Brownell emphasizes the difficulty of their matches, especially against Milton, Nobles, Tabor, and Groton.  He stressed the importance of his players’ determination and will to win, and credited their focus and dedication during practice and matches to ultimately allow them to prevail victoriously. To this point he said, “At the right time our kids managed to have the right performance”. This work and dedication gave them the opportunity to win important matches. Coach Brownell also added, “every boy had a really good win and tough loss over the year, which gave them an edge in experience and mental toughness”. Furthermore, the team also recently traveled down to Pennsylvania to compete in nationals. After long, grueling matches, they earned 9th place in their division in nationals.

The Varsity Squash team completed another incredible season, and with such a young roster with only one senior leaving the Varsity squad, we can only expect them to continue their success in the following years. As Coach Brownell stated, “Our team will continue to get better in the next few years; we are a team with tremendous potential. We had a small taste in nationals [which is] the level we want to get to and I think it gives the kids something to aim for.” Although there is only one departing senior, one cannot understate the importance and the effect that captain Aaron Green had on this team. Coach Brownell speaks enthusiastically about Aaron’s contributions to the squad, and says he will be missed greatly in the coming years, “we are a young team but we lose a sensational senior captain in Aaron Green”. The Panel congratulates the squash team on their ISL Title and wishes them success in the following years.
