WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women’s squash team will have a nice mix of experience and young players as the Mules open the season Saturday against Trinity College at home at 2 p.m.

Junior Kate Pistel, an All-American in women’s lacrosse and also a starter on defense for women’s soccer, returns in the top position after going a solid 11-11 a year ago. She also will be the captain of the team this season.

Molly Parsons had a team-best 15-7 record last year at the second position and returns for her junior season. She has 29 victories in her first two seasons.

Lindsey McKenna also returns at the third position for the Mules. She performed well in her first year with a 12-10 record.

Colby head coach Sakhi Khan will have three first-year players in positions four to six. Maddie Hunsicker is at the fourth spot, Elizabeth Brehman is at five, and Tara Tischio will play the sixth position.

Coco Cowan is back in the top nine at the seventh position after winning six matches at the sixth spot last year. The Mules will lose Lily Greenberg, who played the seventh spot last year and won 11 matches, for the first portion of the season while she is studying abroad. First-year Amelia Barnett will move into the eighth spot and senior Emma Beck will play at nine.

Danielle Dunnder, Sophie Frishberg, Kayla Grueneich, and Julie Entwistle also will battle for top nine positions.

The Mules host Williams on Jan. 7 and then entertain four teams (Drexel, Brown, MIT, and Mount Holyoke) in the Maine Event. Colby also plays at home against rival Bowdoin on Saturday, Feb. 11.
