NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Connecticut College senior Cara Flynn (Haverford, Pa.) and freshman Caleb Garza (Ocean City, N.J.) have been honored on the All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Squash teams.
A two-year captain for the Camels, Flynn garnered All-NESCAC Honors for the second straight year. Flynn landed on the second team after earning first team honors in her junior campaign for Connecticut College.
On the heels of his 22-5 season, Garza was recognized as the NESCAC Men´s Squash Rookie of the Year and was dually honored as a second team All-NESCAC performer.
Under the direction of Head Coach Bill McNally, both clubs enjoyed their share of success this winter. The men´s squad repeated as the Conroy Division Champions with a record of 16-11. Flynn provided valuable leadership for a young women´s team that notched eight wins, including late season triumphs against Northeastern University and the University of Virginia at the Howe Cup.
"Cara Flynn has always been a serious, determined competitor, and has played in the top three positions all four years," McNally said. "A respectful competitor, Cara always plays her best, even under difficult circumstances. As a team leader, Cara has been an example of the best squash participation and competition offers. She will be missed and we all wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors."
A Dean´s High Honors Student, Flynn will receive her history degree this spring.
McNally was please to here of Garza´s achievement and is looking forward to what should be an exciting 2010-2011 season for the Camels.
"Caleb had an outstanding freshman season playing number one," McNally said. "He is a hard working player, gifted with very quick hands and feet, a low keyed, good humored demeanor and is very popular with his teammates. He will have a wonderful collegiate squash career and we are delighted he is with us."
Garza is enrolled as an engineering major at the College.
