Wang Claims Consolation Bracket Championship at CSA Individuals

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- After falling in his opening match at the 2018 College Squash Association (CSA) Individual Championships, Amherst College first year Terrence Wang won three straight matches to claim the South Bracket consolation championship.

Wang completed his run with a four-set win over James Watson of Penn University on Saturday evening (12-10, 6-11, 11-5, 11-6).

That was his second match win of Saturday, after defeating Jarett Odrich of Virginia in the morning.

Wang led off his tournament with a tough loss to Arhum Saleem of Columbia University, falling 11-4, 11-9, 11-4, but he bounced back later in the afternoon with a victory over Quinn Udy of Hobart College.

A 2018 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) All-Conference selection, Wang stepped into the number one position at the start of his first year at Amherst, and played every match at the beginning of the Mammoth's lineup. He rattled off four straight wins to start his collegiate career, and also won matches against MIT and NESCAC foe Colby College.
