24 Cheers for Laila Samy!

Senior Laila Samy was named the 2018 Betty Richey Award winner yesterday. This is the most prestigious annual honor bestowed by the College Squash Association (CSA). With another win yesterday morning, Samy concluded her dual-match season with a perfect 24-0 record.

 The award is given to the women’s college squash player who best exemplifies the ideals of squash in her love and devotion to the game, her strong sense of fairness, and her excellence of play and leadership. The winner is determined by a vote of both coaches and players—each varsity team casts one coach and one team vote.

Congratulations to Laila, to Coach Shona Kerr, and to the entire Wesleyan University squash family. You do us all proud!

  1. Congrats to another extraordinary Cardinal student-athlete, Laila Samy, for her well deserved recognition! I guess that Slate magazine author will now try to parlay this award into a story line about Wesleyan continuing on the path to becoming an “academic standards loosening liberal arts female sports factory” (kind of like what Williams/Amherst/Tufts/Middlebury have been doing for decades…… with in most cases a smaller student body!:)
