ndSouth Bend, IN — Last season, Notre Dame joined the women’s squash scene, sending five players to the Emerging Teams division of Howe Cup for the first time.  The team’s enthusiasm helped draw a lot of positive attention to women’s squash at Notre Dame.

This season, the Irish hope to field a full nine-player ladder.  They are working with the Cleveland Racquet Club to schedule some matches with East Coast teams for the school’s first “non-National” matches as a women’s team.
