On March 19, Caroline F. ’24 served up an incredible win at the US Junior Nationals tournament in Philadelphia. For the second consecutive year, Caroline has captured the U19 title in the championship match. Two weeks later, Caroline qualified for a wildcard spot in the Professional World Championships, which will be held May 3-11 at Union Station in Chicago. This professional event is the biggest tournament of the year, and Caroline will compete against the top 64 players worldwide.
Caroline began playing squash when she was eight years old, and she soon fell in love with the sport’s physical and mental challenge. Since then, Caroline has notched many impressive accomplishments, including playing on the USA Women’s Junior National team. This season, Caroline has debuted at a number of prestigious tournaments and hopes to continue playing on the PSA World tour. Over the summer, Caroline and the Junior National team will also travel to Australia to compete for the gold medal.
“I am incredibly grateful for all the support I have had from my squash coaches, strength/conditioning coaches, friends, and family over the years,” shared Caroline. “I still have many more years of squash ahead of me, and I would not be in the position I am today without the world-class team I have teaching me, guiding me, and inspiring me every day. I would specifically thank my parents and my coach.”
We are so proud of Caroline’s accomplishments and admire the grit and determination it takes to achieve this level of success. Congratulations, Caroline!
