Annual squash awards go to Mullen, Peterson

Two members of the William Smith College squash team, junior Katie Mullen and senior Megan Peterson, were recently honored at the annual Heron Awards Banquet on April 28. Mullen took home the Irene Graves Harer ’28 Squash Award, while Peterson was presented the Lauren Michaels ’05 Squash Coach’s Award.

Mullen finished the winter with a 10-9 record, ranking second on the team in wins. She played the majority of William Smith’s 19 matches at No. 3, posting a 7-7 mark at that position. Mullen also played at No. 2 (1-0) and No. 4 (2-2). She closed out her junior season by winning all three of her matches at the Epps Cup, helping the Herons take home the title. A two-time first team All-Liberty League pick, Mullen was tabbed the Liberty League Performer of the Week twice this year. With one season remaining, she owns a 36-23 career record.

A two-time Liberty League All-Academic selection, Peterson became one of the first William Smith squash players to earn the College Squash Association (CSA) Scholar-Athlete Award. She and classmate Ali Hasaeotes (The Lincoln School/North Attleboro, Mass.) both won the award, which was announced in February at the CSA Team Championships. Peterson posted a 9-10 individual mark this winter, including a 5-6 mark at No. 7. She also saw time at No. 4 (0-1), No. 5 (1-1), and No. 6 (3-2). Peterson rounded out her career with a 19-17 record, finishing with a three-match winning streak and helping William Smith capture the Epps Cup title.
