Last weekend was a truly remarkable one for Potomac's girls and boys varsity squash teams as they swept the competition in the 2018 US Squash High School National Championships in Philadelphia.
After a tough win over Holton Arms, the Panthers and their fans celebrated the record-breaking accomplishments of senior Courtlynne Caskin. Courtlynne, who broke the girls career scoring record of 1,326 points last week, was honored before the game, as Head of School John Kowalik presented her with a special game ball. Caskin was featured in a January 8, 2018 article in the Washington Post.
On Saturday, Jan 20th, the boys varsity squash team traveled to Episcopal High School to defend their title at the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Squash Organization Championships.
As the top seed, the team received a first round bye and started off their campaign against St. Christopher's in the semi-finals.

In their tenth win of the season, they beat Stone Ridge 3-0. Courtlynne Caskin, Charlotte White, and Grace Sherman scored.
A September 18 match against powerhouse Walter Johnson put our girls up against four highly-ranked tournament players. Our strong doubles combinations (Katherine Davis and Anna Lerner; Izzy Moran and Natalie Davidson; and Jodie Kuo and Emma Lee) all won with decisive scores. With the match tied at 3-3, freshman Pearl Nguyen saved the day, coming from behind to win 11-9 in a match that took over 2 1/2 hours! The end result: Potomac 4, Walter Johnson 3.
