Squashing Winter

Hey Everybody!

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!

About Rex

My name is Rex, and I am the head blogger for Big Red Bloggers! I am a senior from Washington DC, and this is my fourth year at Exeter. In the dorm, I am a proctor, which is kind of like a student leader for the dorm. On campus, I am the squash captain, I play the first spot on varsity tennis, I play trumpet for the concert band as well as piano on my own. I am also a member of the Discipline Committee, which oversees cases in which students (rarely) break one of the school's major rules. Two of my passions here are being a news editor for The Exonian, our school newspaper, and being a member of Student Council. I was a grade representative two years ago, and last year I was a dorm representative. With my spare time, I love hanging out with friends, playing frisbee in the park, or hosting a radio show with my two friends each week.
