Nichols Students Named Squash City Champions
Recently, an historic moment occurred in the 100-year history of squash in Buffalo. For the first time, both Buffalo Squash Racquets Championships were won by junior players, both from Nichols School.   Nichols seniors, Michael Che and Pamicka Marinello, became the City Champions on Saturday, March 5. This win implies their positions as the best male and female players in the city.   Che thrashed a veteran of five city championships and Marinello triumphed over a former collegiate squash player at St. Lawrence University. Nichols freshman, Caroline Hogan, came in fourth in the women’s tournament. They all exhibited great sportsmanship and graciousness in victory.
