It was a great year for Harvard squash, who had two newcomers—sophomore Ali Farag and freshman Amanda Sobhy, win the men’s and women’s CSA Individual Championships, respectively, in March. Both swept four straight opponents by a 3-0 score on route to the finals, where Sobhy defeated the reigning champion, Yale’s Millie Tomlinson, and Farag knocked off Columbia’s Ramit Tandon to take the titles. The championships capped undefeated seasons for Farag and Sobhy, while the latter earned a second title when the Crimson’s women’s squash squad won the CSA National Team Championship.
