First Week of June-Philosophy of Navy Squash

Years ago when the Naval Academy started their squash team they competed with Ivy League schools who had established squash traditions. They were initially out matched but built a winning tradition based on the following philosophy:

Accept the possibility of failure.

Never, never quit on yourself.

(James Zug, Squash, A History of the Game, 141-42)
