Northampton, MA — League play in the New England Small Conference Athletic Conference is underway.  With the first semester of the season complete, CollegeSquashAssociation.com is publishing the current league standings.

In total, there are eleven squash schools in NESCAC.  The league will hold its annual tournament on February 5th – 7th to ultimately determine the top team in the league.

The NESCAC standings are the win/loss totals against other NESCAC opponents and are not the same as national rankings.  The standings were calculated using the following criteria in order of importance: win percentage against league opponents, number of wins against league opponents, and the number of losses against league opponents.  If there is still a tie, head-to-head results are considered.

Women’s NESCAC Squash Standings through December 19th:

  • 1. Bates College  (3 Wins, 0 Losses, 100 Percent — Defeated Tufts, Conn, & Wesleyan)
  • 2. Trinity College  (1 Win, 0 Losses, 100 Percent — Defeated Williams)
  • 2. Hamilton College  (1 Win, 0 Losses, 100 Percent — Defeated Bowdoin)
