Raquetwomen Top Wesleyan As Moore Adds to Win Skein

By Marc M. Sadowsky

The Radcliffe squash team scored a huge victory yesterday, 7-2, against Wesleyan in faraway Connecticut, a match that saw captain Julia Moore extend her winning streak to eight.

Moore, who has yet to lose this year, scored an easy 3-0 victory. She was philosophic about her victory. "Basically, it was winning more points than my opponent that led to my victory," Moore said.

"I also won more games than she did. I think that's how most of the players who won felt," she added.

Number two player Jenny Stone was one of the two Radcliffe casualties of the day, dropping her match 3-1, but Sarah Mleczko, in her third position, came back and annihilated her foe, 3-0.

Four of the remaining five players notched shutout victories, including Eve Caligor at number four, Margot McGlade at five, Marina Casteneda to seven, and Meg Lesser at nine.

Becky Miles, playing in the sixth position for Radcliffe, lost her first game 10-15 before bouncing back and winning the next three games in a row.

Killer Instinct

"I played well," Miles said, adding that her opponent was slow and could be outplayed because of that. "Basically they were really nice girls, but you can't win and be nice."

Nelia Worsley, playing number eight, was the other Radcliffe loser, falling 3-0. "I played okay. She was just better," Worsley said.

Moore cited a couple of reasons for the victory, which came only three days after the racquetwomen had suffered their third loss of the season.

"Coach Cutler offered to send Valentine's Day cards to us if we wanted them," Moore said. "The show of affection and concern spurred us on to victory."

Moore also said that the anticipation of delicious box lunches on the two-and-a-half hour return trip helped the squashers win.
