CitySquasher Helps The Taft School Record Huge Win

Tenth grader Andrew Cadienhead recorded the most significant win of his high school career on Saturday, January 29th as he helped The Taft School earn a 4-3 victory over long-time rival Brunswick. Cadienhead, who joined CitySquash as a sixth grader in 2006, played in the #4 position on Taft’s varsity boys lineup. With Taft down two matches to three and with only two matches left to be played, Andrew and Taft captain Andy Cannon both needed to win to pull off the victory. Andrew’s match went back and forth and eventually came down to the final points as Andrew won 11-9 in the fifth. Both Andrew and his captain prevailed in five games to hand Brunswick their first defeat in eleven years. As the youngest player on the Taft team, Andrew handled the pressure superbly and used his cool head and deft touch to win a match he will not soon forget. The victory for Taft was celebrated in the CitySquash office as former employee Supriya Balsekar and current Assistant Program Director Michael Shrubb are both squash alumni of Taft. Congratulations to Andrew!
