WATERVILLE, Maine --- Kate Pistel, Molly Parsons, and Lindsey McKenna combined for 59 victories last year for the Colby women's squash team a year ago and all three return for the 2012-13 season.

The Mules open up the 2012-13 season Saturday with matches against Northeastern and Wellesley.

Pistel, a three-time All-NESCAC selection, led the Mules with a 22-7 record at the first position. While Pistel was the captain of the team a year ago, fellow senior Parsons will captain the team this year after recording 17 wins last year.

McKenna, who is studying abroad, will miss part of the season after going 20-9 last year. Liz Brehman (16 wins), Tara Tischio (15 wins), Madeline Hunsicker (11 wins), and Lily Greenberg also return.

First-year players Julie Wolpow, Mikaela Johnson, and Amanda Corwin all should start the year in top-nine positions. Amelia Barnett returns for the Mules and Carolyn Mitchell will look for time.
