Quote from Coach: “The Haverford Women’s Squash team did some of its best work last season to date when it comes to competing hard, improving skill, and maintaining mental focus. They are a passionate group of players that are eager to represent their teammates to the best of their ability and fight hard for what they want. I am so excited for what they will achieve this year as a team.”

“The Haverford Men’s Squash team has put in the work during the off-season, and is laser-focused on what it wants to achieve this year. The team is composed of experienced upperclassmen and eager underclassmen, all of whom are determined to get to work, are committed to their team, and are hungry to play to the very best of their ability every time they get on court to represent Haverford. This group of people always impresses me and I am humbled to be a part of a program where there is such unanimous commitment, high achievement and pure fun”.
