Denison squash programs officially become varsity sports

After a year-long wait due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Denison men’s and women’s squash programs have entered into varsity competition for the 2021-2022 season. The move from club to varsity brings the number of sports at Denison to 26 (14 women, 12 men), the most of any North Coast Athletic Conference program.

The Collegiate Squash Association season began last weekend and will run through early March. The men’s team was shut out by Hobart 8-0 while the women lost 7-2 to William Smith.

Among the teams on Denison’s men’s schedule are Ohio State, Virginia, Michigan, Navy and Bucknell. The women’s schedule features Virginia, Georgetown, Boston and Bucknell. 

Both teams are coached by Pam Anckermann, who is entering her fifth year at Denison. She was the No. 1 player on the Guatemala national team for 12 years and a standout player for Mount Holyoke, where she graduated in 2009.
