WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men's squash team loses Harry Smith, possibly the greatest player in program history, to graduation. The Mules will still have a Smith in CJ, Harry's younger brother.

Smith is expected to take over the first position in his first year with Colby. He and the Mules begin the 2012-13 season Saturday with away matches at Northeastern and MIT. The Smiths are the younger brothers to Colby graduate Samantha Smith, who is one of the greatest women's players in program history.

John Eder had the best record for the Mules last year at 21-5 and should play at three. Roy Simpson III moves up from the third spot to the second spot. Steve Carroll (16 wins), Ben York (17-12), captain Pete Gabranski (14 wins), and Darryl Soto also return.

The Mules lost Will Sullivan, who was 21-11 at the second spot last year, to a season-ending injury. Will Hochman is studying abroad and will miss part of the season after going 19-13 at the fifth position for 12th-year head coach Sakhi Khan.

First-years Yuga Koda and Greg Ho are expected to join Smith in the top nine positions.

Arjumand Masood, Jyot Arora, Spencer Jeffrey, James Grote, and Bowen Tretheway also will battle for playing spots.
