Men’s Squash | ‘Squash beats them all’ (via Eagle Tribune)
Before Stephen Smith began attending Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., when he heard the word “squash” the first thing he thought was “ugly vegetable.”
These days squash is so much more to the Georgetown native. It’s art. It’s geometry. It’s mind-blowing. It’s mind-numbing. It’s his new passion in life.
On the 22-man Trinity men’s squash team, Smith, a junior, is No. 20. While that might not sound impressive, a little homework is in order.
