At the age of seventeen, Tomas Fortson was one of the better young squash players in North America. National boundaries meant little to his athletic career that bounced back and forth between his native Mexico and New York, Venezuela, London, and Boston, as he played the professional circuit internationally and ran club squash programs.
By the time he became men’s and women’s squash coach at Bowdoin College, he and his spouse were ready to settle in a good place to raise their children, and they found it in Brunswick. “We can’t find a better place to bring our kids up in a healthy, safe environment,” said Fortson in 2009. The family immigrated from Mexico.
