CSA tabs Boal for Scholar Athlete honor

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. – The College Squash Association (CSA) on Wednesday released its 2012-2013 Scholar Athlete Team with Haverford College senior Peter Boal named to the varsity athlete list.

To be eligible for the varsity list an athlete must be a two-time varsity letter winner, must have posted a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.50, be a junior or senior, played at his current school for one full year prior to the present term, and must have played in the majority of scheduled CSA-sanctioned matches.

Forty-two athletes were named to the varsity list and 12 were chosen for the club program's list.

Boal posted a 6-11 record during his senior campaign at Haverford, playing at the Nos. 2 through 5 positions. Boal's final eight matches of the year were at the No. 2 spot for the Fords.

Haverford captured the F-Division Serues Cup in 2012 and moved up two divisions at the 2013 CSA national tournament where they competed for the D-Division Conroy Cup.

The Fords, 41st in the final 2013 standings, were honored at the 2013 tournament with the Barnaby Award presented annually at the championship to the men's team which displayed the most improvement from one season to the next. Previous winners of the award include Columbia University, Yale, and Cornell University.
