The College Squash Association (CSA) has awarded Dickinson College with the 2018 Women’s Most Improved Team Award. The award recognizes a team that has improved in the rankings while surpassing other strong opposing teams. The honor was first given in 2010, and is voted on by all varsity women’s teams.
Dickinson compiled a 10-9 season record, including two 5-4 wins against Centennial Conference rivals Franklin & Marshall. The team also made a run to the final of the Walker Cup division at the Women’s National Team Championships.
Dickinson improved five ranking positions from last season, moving from No. 23 in 2016-2017 to a final ranking this season of No. 18. It marked the highest season-end ranking position ever achieved by Dickinson, which only began a varsity squash program in 2014.
This is the first time Dickinson has won the Most Improved Team Award.
“The Dickinson women’s squash team is honored to be named the most improved team of the season,” stated Dickinson Head Coach Chris Sachvie, “We had some breakthrough wins and a wonderful showing at the team championships which is a testament to the hard work and growth of our players over the last year. We look forward to another big season in 2018-2019!”
