Philadelphia, PA — This weekend at the 2013 – 2014 College Squash Association Individual Championships, legendary former Princeton men’s coach Bob Callahan will be inducted into the Men’s College Squash Association Hall of Fame. In addition, Callahan will receive the MCSA’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Callahan, who retired after the 2012 – 2013 season, coached Princeton for 32 years. He led the Tigers to team championships in 1982, 1993, and 2012, coached five winners of the individual championships, won 11 Ivy League titles, and amassed over 300 career victories. Callahan also ushered in a new era for the MCSA by advocating for the switch from hardball to softball squash in the early 1990s.
Callahan will be the first MCSA coach inducted since 2005 (Robert Hawthorn, Fordham University) and the first Lifetime Achievement Award winner since 2007 (Tom Rumpler).
All college squash players, coaches, and fans are invited to attend the presentation on Saturday night (3/1) at 8:00 PM in the atrium lobby of the Drexel University’s Daskalakis Athletic Center (3315 Market St, Philadelphia, PA 19104).
