Trinity Men’s Squash Loss is Hartford Connecticut’s Gain

I never understood how Hartford, Connecticut came to be the hotbed for collegiate squash. It always seemed like such a strange set of navigational circumstances, like Christopher Columbus setting sail for the West Indies and landing in the Bahamas. But now that the racquet sport tyrants of Trinity College have lost their first match since 1997-98, ending a string of 252 victories, the capital of the Nutmeg State can finally go back to being simply the former insurance capital of the world. Incidentally, did you know that Hartford is generally considered as having one of the most beautiful skylines in the United States? If that doesn’t bring the Whalers back I don’t know what will.
