2006:  Although a club team, the men’s squash team still participated in matches and held practices. There were about 30 players but only 12 players were officially on the club team. They competed in 11 intercollegiate matches, 3 of which were scrimmages, and ended with a 4-7 record. In addition, the team competed in the C division at team nationals, ending the season with a national ranking of 24. Back in the fall of 2001, although the club team technically existed, David Schwarz (DIII Tennis Coach of the Year) reinvented the men’s squash club team. He stated that this was the “best freshman class ever”.
