Trinity College Squash Hangs on to Win Again

I recently wrote about the Trinity College Men’s Squash Team. I was inspired by a story I heard on NPR. There were lessons to be learned from their coach and the teamwork that he has promoted. The story profiled the team’s multi-cultural makeup and fierce determination. They were seeking their 11th straight NCAA title. Other teams, notably Princeton University, have valiantly tried to achieve the lofty levels set by Trinity by following their playbook, especially when recruiting. In recent years, Princeton had closed the gap and Trinity viewed them as their biggest threat. Trinity came into this year’s tournament finals at 18-0 and holding onto a 201 consecutive match winning streak.  Sure enough, the faced Princeton for the title. They won again, but it took a big rally and some good fortune. When I read about the victory, I could feel the excitement that must have been awesome to experience in person. Trinity has set a very high bar and it is good to see that Princeton and others haven’t given up on trying to topple the champs.

@trailrunningmom led another successful #Yoga at #Sunset for the #boltonlandtrust This year's venue was the #BoltonHeritageFarm It's been a tradition to move to a new spot each time. I got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🏃🏻⛰🏆 Another great #sunset at #windingtrails Two distant pre-swim thunderclaps turned the race into a #Duathlon which suited me just fine! It's nice to not come into T1 with a two minute deficit. #Triathlon #mountainbiking #trailrunning #teamhorstsports Once again, @trailrunningmom took the cookie prize for winning the special summit competition at the finish line of the #shenipsitstriders #SoapstoneAssault Here is a picture of a picture of myself taking a picture. @cwoodside59 put together a nice piece for the @ctforestandparkassociation quarterly. I'm looking forward to my next #carfreecommute #selfie #bicycle #windingtrails Kid's #Triathlon
