Northampton, MA — On Sunday, the e-mail below was sent to CSA coaches, team contacts, and Sports Information Directors.

Coaches, Team Contacts, and SIDs,

A few reminders:

  • Team Rankings:The ranking committee will be reviewing results on Monday evening (12/3). If your results are not posted to the US Squash Scoring System, they will not be considered for ranking purposes. Without results in the US Squash Scoring System, your team will not be credited appropriately. At most, you have 48 hours after a match is played to submit results. In addition, the sooner results are submitted to the US Squash Scoring System, the greater the chance that your team is mentioned in the Sunday evening “Around the Courts” article.
    • Warnings issued: Three WCSA teams and seven MCSA teams received warnings earlier this week for Not on Roster players/missing results. If these discrepancies are not fixed by 12/3 at 6 PM, these teams will be removed from the rankings.
  • Harrow Sports Player of the Week:Please nominate deserving players for Player of the Week honors by 6 PM ET Monday (12/3).
    • Criteria: A Player of the Week should have a significant impact on his or her team’s performance during the prior week and demonstrate sportsmanship.
    • Nominations: Coaches, Sports Information Directors, and Team Contacts may nominate players by using the following link: [Link in e-mail]
