In combination with all of the excitement from Urban Teams, StreetSquash was elated to welcome back Nicol David, the world’s number one female squash player and eight-time world champion to our Harlem facilities! Nicol distributed the Urban Team Nationals Academic Awards to urban scholars from across the country; including to our very own Cindy Yao, who won the Under 17 essay contest and is admitted to this summer’s NUSEA Citizenship tour.
Following the awards ceremony, our students had the opportunity to meet Nicol, take photos, and ask her questions. Such an awesome experience for our StreetSquashers and the urban squash community! A huge thank you to our board member, Ed Shugrue, for making it all happen. We hope to see you again soon, Nicol!
