Winter term is always a very difficult time for Exonians, and this week has been especially rough, after another snowstorm blew in eight more inches. Luckily, the days are getting longer and spring is approaching!
One of the main things that gets me threw the term is my winter sport, squash. It is always nice to leave the frigid outdoors for a couple of hours and focus on playing as best I can on the courts. Whenever I have a bad day, or a test did not turn out well, or I have a large amount of work due the next day, I take comfort in squash as a way to let everything off the mind.
When I came to Exeter last year I had never touched a squash racket, but being a tennis player, I gave it a try, and now it is a huge passion of mine. We are currently near the end of the season, and here you can see photos of the first match against our rival, Andover. Varsity and Junior Varsity both crushed our opponent, but we are preparing to face them once more for the final Exeter/ Andover match.
Until then, the team is training hard and looking forward to the event!
