The women's squash team went toe-to-toe with some of the nation's best programs during the 2015-16 season and competed at a high level throughout, finishing the year at No. 14, its highest national ranking since 2012.
For the second straight year, Franklin & Marshall made a return to the Kurtz Cup, an annual matchup of the nation's No. 9-16 teams at the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Championships. The Diplomats produced a 1-2 record in the bracket, including a 6-3 victory against No. 15 Middlebury in the consolation round.
In March, three members of the team took part in the Holleran Division at the CSA Individual Championships. Fiona Murphy '17 advanced to the semifinals of her draw after beginning action with two-straight wins. Sherilyn Yang '18 also won her opening contest but fell in the quarterfinals while Emily Caldwell '16 bowed out in the consolation semifinals.
Murphy was solid near the top of the ladder throughout the year, leading the team with a 14-5 record, which was the 18th most single-season victories in program history. Lauren Johnston '18 also produced a winning record at 8-7, competing at the No. 4-5 positions.
