A last win for the seniors.

The Buffalo Seminary squash team continued its winning streak at this year’s U.S. High School Team Championships, February 10-12 in Hartford, CT. Following their 2015 & 2016 Division V championship wins, the Red-Tailed Hawks claimed the title for the third year in a row.

Under the guidance of coach Phil Barth, the team (Cara DeRose ’18, Isabelle Schlehr ’17, Rose McDonnell ’18, Petra DeRose ’20, Erin Griffis ’19, Lara Sherris ’17, Clare von Simson ‘17, Mary Curtin ’19, Maia Dreishpoon ’19, Brooke Pohlman ’19, Julia Beck ’20, and Jenna Pantano ’20) has been tirelessly working and practicing over the course of the season. This weekend, that hard work paid off. They swiftly defeated Lancaster Country Day School 6-1 in the quarters before proceeding to handily beat School of the Holy Child with another 6-1 win in the semis.

This was a bittersweet victory for SEM seniors Isabelle Schlehr, Clare von Simson, and Lara Sherris. All three have been on the squash team since freshman year, and have been an integral part of  SEM’s success. Their final championship win is both a fitting ending to a successful four years and a reminder of how quickly time flies.

Clare noted, “It was really nice to win our third championship as a senior, because my first Nationals was the first time we won the championship and it was nice that we also won during my last.”

Congratulations to the whole team on an amazing conclusion to a wonderful season! #GoSEM
