SQUASH Brunswick’s Spizzirri and Leonard named All-Americans
Brunswick School juniors Brian Leonard and Nick Spizzirri received All-American accolodes by US Squash for the second straight year, recently.
Spizzirri and Leonard helped lead the Bruins to an undefeated record during their 2018-19 season — a season that saw the squad win the Division I title at the HEAD U.S. High School Team Squash Championships for the fourth time.
Also selected as a member of the All-New England Team, Spizzirri played at the No. 1 spot for the Bruins this past season. A Greenwich resident, Spizzirri finished fifth in the US Squash U19 Division rankings.
Leonard, a resident of Harrison, N.Y., was sixth in the U19 rankings and did not lose a match the entire season for Brunswick at the No. 2 position. He won his match against Haverford School in the title matchup of the U.S. High School Team Squash Championships, 3-0. All-New England Team honors also went to Leonard.
Spizzirri posted a 3-2 triumph against his Haverford foe at the national championships for Brunswick, which beat Haverford for the title, 6-1.
Spizzirri and junior Dana Santry were also recently chosen to compete for the U.S. Junior National Team. The Brunswick duo will play in the World Junior Squash Championships with the U.S. National Team from July 30 to Aug. 4. The world championships features players under 19 years old.
Santry’s 3-2 victory against his Haverford opponent clinched Brunswick’s fourth team championship at the national tournament this past winter at Trinity College.
