It was a memorable season for the squash program. The varsity team didn’t stand alone this winter, having a JV program for the first time in Walker’s history. Equally significant, the varsity team attended High School Squash Nationals for the first time, competing in Division VI which was held at Westminster School. This is one of the largest squash tournaments in the world with the 2020 tournament hosting more than 1,600 players. Walker’s won round one on the first day of the tournament, which was held on Friday afternoon. The team performed well in round two late Saturday morning, and lost in the finals 4-3 to Buckingham Browne & Nichols School on Sunday morning. Following Nationals, the team also competed in New Englands where they traveled to Pomfret for back-to-back days to compete in the Class E Tournament.
