In the boys division one, the Kent School (Connecticut) enters as the tournament’s top seed–the highest seeding in program history–and as the favorites to lift the Justi Cup.  The Kent School are seeded to face Deerfield (Massachusetts) in the semifinals.

Brunswick (Connecticut) will defend its title and aim for a record-augmenting sixth Justi Cup as the two seeds, but must first get past perennial nationals rivals Haverford (Pennsylvania) according to the semifinal seeding.

Baldwin (Pennsylvania) lead the girls division one in search of the program’s second Patterson Cup, and a potential semifinal against Sacred Heart (Connecticut).

Greenwich Academy, who have won thirteen out of fifteen Patterson Cups since the tournament’s inception, will target a sixth consecutive national title as the two seed with a potential 2020 final rematch against Agnes Irwin (Pennsylvania) in the semifinals.

The Specter Center will celebrate the dedication of the Scholastic Squash exhibit on the facility’s north end, donated in honor of long-time Brunswick coach Jim Stephens Saturday evening at 7pm. Since the High School Nationals’ inception in 2004, Stephens has coached Brunswick to the finals thirteen times, capturing a record five national titles. With his unique brand of humility, purposeful mentorship and humor, Coach Stephens has influenced generations of players through his teaching the values of sportsmanship and excellence.
