Ivy LeagueThe Ivy League is made up of Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University.

By the time Yale won the first Ivy League title in 1983, many of the Ivies already had active women’s squash programs. Initially, many female players found access to be an issue: in the 1960s, Penn only allowed women to play at 9 am, and students from Radcliffe encountered similar restrictions on courts at Harvard. When Aggie Kurtz started a women’s team at Dartmouth in 1972, she made sure a new entrance to the courts was built so that her players didn’t have to walk through the men’s locker room to enter them. But despite these initial challenges, women’s squash flourished in the Ivy League. Under legendary coach Betty Constable (who while living in Princeton during the 1950s had had to sneak into Dillon Gym to practice with the men’s team), the Tigers captured the first national team title in 1973. Until Trinity won the Howe Cup in 2002, no team outside the Ivy League won the national team championships. Many individual champions and All-Americans have come from Ivy League teams, which continue to be a major force in women’s college squash.

Lists of All-Ivy League teams can be found on the Women’s All-Ivy archive page.
