Denison University: 2022-2023 Season Preview

Denison University Big Red

2022-2023 Season Preview 

  • Newly-hired head coach Mike MacDonald will be working overtime to get to know his new players and set a path for a successful first season at his alma mater.
  • Denison’s first season with varsity squash teams was a success last year, a result that they will look to build on in Year 2.
  • The women’s team missed out on the team championships due to weather complications in 2022, so reaching the Top 30 and playing in the championship will be a main goal.
  • Both teams’ first sets of varsity recruits will start to have meaningful impacts on the program as they settle to a new team culture.
