A Message From Squash Coach Chris Fernandez

At this critical moment in time, collective-minded compassion and positivity are critical. We all share a great deal of care and sympathy for all the Dickinson teams that had seasons cut short. We share a great deal of compassion and sympathy for everyone around the world facing hardship and unimageable challenges due to this pandemic.

Although we were fortunate to have finished our season, I want to thank our seniors, who have made great sacrifices and strides as not only Dickinson student-athletes but as people over the last four years; Jaime-Leigh Edghill, Abdelrahman Elsergany, Alex Wattles, Tanay Murdia and Graham Henderson. I am sorry your senior years are not ending up as originally planned, but we as a program could not be any more grateful for your contributions to the progression of Dickinson squash over the last four years. All of you have a lifelong support system and family in the Dickinson Squash program.

Whether we are physically together or not, the Dickinson Squash programs will remain a strong and supportive family. We will continue our path to being better students, squash players, and people. As a program, we talk a lot about energy and control, focusing our energy on the things that are under our control and letting go of the things we cannot. Since the current state of the world is out of our control, we must not succumb to dwelling on all the negatives this has brought into our everyday lives. Rather let's focus and control putting your energy into taking time for yourselves, your loved ones, and your neighbors. We will all be reunited soon but in the meantime it's important to make time to care for ourselves and our loved ones.

Stay Safe!

With love and compassion,

Coach Fernandez
