Women win Ivy Championship

Our women finished their regular season with a 9-0 win over Yale last week and won the 2016 Ivy Championship. This year's title is the 20th championship in program history. The team’s record this season was an impressive 10-0 (7-0 Ivy League). 

The men’s team wasn’t able to upset the Bulldogs and lost a close match 6-3. The Crimson fell behind early in the first round of matches when co-captain Devin McLaughlin ’17 fell and dislocated his shoulder and had to retire. Yale was able to keep the lead until the end despite many close matches. 

Yale remained undefeated in the Ivy League this year and won the men's title outright. Harvard finished second along with Columbia (both with a 5-2 record).

Harvard Women vs. Yale Women 9-0

Harvard Men vs. Yale Men 3-6

For the first time in college squash history, the men’s and women’s team nationals will be played on the same weekend. The women's match against Cornell will start at noon and the men's match will begin at 2:30pm on Friday at the Yale courts.

CSA Individual Nationals at Chelsea Piers - March 4-6, 2016

This year’s individual tournament will be a historic event too, taking place at an off-campus venue for the first time ever. The best players in the country will compete at Chelsea Piers (Stamford, CT) in a couple of weeks.  

Following the semifinals on the Saturday (March 5), the championship will feature a gala bringing back many of the past champions. 

We're hoping to see many of you during the weekend.
