PC Squash Alums Playing in College

As of this week, there are fourteen OPC varsity squash players in the College Squash Association (CSA) playing for eleven colleges or universities.

Five OPC men are playing on the top six teams and four women are playing on the top ten teams. There are currently 104 squash teams competing in the CSA. While at Penn Charter most of these players competed on teams that finished 1st or 2nd in the U.S. Squash High School Nationals on more than one occasion. Most of these players have won multiple InterAc and MASA titles as well.

The attached photo was taken on the weekend of December 3-4, 2011 at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY during a match between Cornell and Columbia. Pictured from left-right are Dave Hilton, OPC’08 / Morgan Strauss, OPC’10 / Alex Domenick, OPC’08 / Skyler Dickey, OPC’10 / Lexi Glassman, OPC’09.

The College Squash Association (CSA) is the official governing body of college squash in the U.S. and is sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. All NCAA rules apply to collegiate squash players. 

I would like to thank Will Glassman (father of Lexi OPC '09) for providing this information.
