Congratulations to Neshmeeya Abbas ’20, who received consecutive honors as a United States Squash Association’s Scholar-Athlete for the 2017-2018 school year as well as the 2016-2017 school year. In order to be considered for the award, athletes must obtain a 3.5 or higher weighted grade point average (GPA) and participate in at least four US Squash accredited tournaments. Neshmeeya attended City View Junior in Long Island City, NY, Scozzie Junior in King of Prussia, PA, Poly Prep Junior in Brooklyn, NY and Squash Revolution Junior in McLean, VA.
Neshmeeya reflects on her experiences sharing, “Apart from playing a sport I love, participating in tournaments has allowed me to meet and get to know players from so many other states and schools!”
Neshmeeya will use independent study to continue practicing Squash and uphold eligibility to receive the 2018-2019 US Squash Association’s Scholar-Athlete Award.
