Women's Squash

This weekend, a number of winter sports teams wrap up their seasons with Ivy League championships. While women's swimming and men's squash finished up last week, their opposite-gender counterparts along with gymnastics and indoor track and field all compete this weekend for postseason glory.

“First time I played her was when we were both nine years old,” Reeham Salah recalled. “We both just started getting into squash, so I won that match in three games, but it was tight from the beginning.” That’s a pretty good way of describing the rivalry between Penn’s Salah and Harvard’s Sabrina Sobhy.

All’s well that ends well. For Penn squash, both the men and women can certainly agree, having each picked up a final win to cap their regular seasons.

For a Penn squash program anticipating a major postseason, it's the last chance to tune up. This weekend, both the men's and women's teams will take on the final two matches of their regular seasons, facing Columbia and Cornell to wrap up Ivy League play.

Penn women's squash prevails while men split on New England road trip

The thing about momentum is that it builds. After stringing together seven consecutive victories, there may be no stopping Penn women’s squash.

Imagine a sport where every single team in the conference was nationally ranked and half of them were within striking distance of winning a collegiate national title every season.

Around Penn Athletics, there will be no shortage of high-octane matchups across the board this weekend. All in all, seven Penn teams will be in regular season action over the next three days, with the majority of them getting deep into the crucial stretch of conference play. With such an action-packed weekend ahead, our sports editors head to the roundtable to debate: which Penn team is under the most pressure to perform this weekend?

Yep, the countdown to Penn-Princeton basketball is finally into single digits. But honestly, Penn squash may just hold the most exciting matchup against the Tigers.

Penn women’s squash went a good distance to Palo Alto, Calif. for a meeting with Stanford on Sunday, but jet lag was not a problem as the No. 2 Quakers topped the No. 5 Cardinal, 6-3.
01/18/17 11:54pm
After topping No. 9 Dartmouth on Sunday, Penn women’s squash took home another two impressive victories over the past two days, defeating No. 3 Trinity and No. 14 Drexel to move to (5-1, 1-1 Ivy) on the year.
01/18/17 10:52pm
There’s no such thing as a day off. For Penn women’s squash, it will be heading out west to Stanford for what will be their fifth game in a one-week span.
01/16/17 8:35pm
It may not have been the best start to Ivy League play, but Penn squash’s weekend was about on par with expectations. Collegiate powerhouse Harvard and their travel partners Dartmouth came to the Ringe Squash Courts, and the Crimson rolled through the men and women on Saturday.

For one Penn women’s squash player, the rise to the top just keeps on going. While the rest of campus was taking time off in December, sophomore Reeham Salah had a busy winter break, traveling to France to compete for Team USA in the World Women’s Team Squash Championships.
01/11/17 9:24pm
No. 1 vs. No. 2. It doesn’t get any more important than this. Penn squash has a high-stakes weekend coming up, including a top-two clash for the women against top-ranked Harvard.
12/13/16 12:57am
The Penn women’s and men’s squash teams go into the winter break having two somewhat distinct experiences to start their seasons.
12/06/16 11:38pm
Sometimes Red, White and Blue comes before Red and Blue. For Penn squash phenom Reeham Salah, that was the case when she joined up with Team USA for the Women’s World Team Championships last weekend in Paris, France.

Championships are won in the offseason; so goes the age-old cliché. This saying holds true for the members of the Penn Squash team as well, but there’s another, more accurate saying for what they do in the offseason: championships are won all over the world. Just as it does with other sports, the offseason presents an extended opportunity for squash players to hone their craft and improve specific aspects of their game, be it fitness, technique, or movement.

Not all games are won on the court. Sometimes, the real differences are made on the sidelines, at the gym, or in the locker room.

Success breeds success. After dominating seasons last year, Penn squash will look to build upon its excellent foundations with stellar new recruits for this go around.
11/15/16 9:51pm
You can’t say it was an ordinary offseason for Penn squash. In a move that showed great faith in the Quakers' coaching staff, it was announced that both Jack Wyant and Gilly Lane would be getting promotions in the Penn squash program.
