For the 2022-2023 season, players from 12 different College Squash Association (CSA) member institutions make up the men’s and women’s All-America teams. Harvard University and Trinity College led the way in overall selections with seven players – four women and three men each. Not far behind, University of Pennsylvania had five of their own selections, including one on the women’s side.

The players earning All-America status have excelled on court throughout both the regular season and the championships. To view the CSA criteria for All-American status, please view it here

Cornell’s National Collegiate Individual Finalist Sivasangari Subramaniam and Harvard’s Marwan Tarek are the only two members of the All-America teams who have earned First Team status in all four seasons of their careers. Both players also captured a National Collegiate Individual Championships earlier in their careers. Drexel’s Matias Knudsen garnered his fourth selection as well, doubling his First Team total after starting his career with two Second Team honors.

Five student-athletes – Alina Bushma (Drexel), Veer Chotrani (Cornell), Omar El Torkey (Virginia), Aly Hussein (Virginia), and Karina Tyma (Drexel) – were selected to their third All-America team. Chotrani has three straight First Team honors, while the remaining four players have at least one Second Team selection.
