After winning the College Squash Association national team championship, the Harvard women’s squash team was honored during halftime of the Harvard women’s basketball game against Dartmouth Tuesday evening.

The women’s squash team captured the 12th national team title in program history this season. Harvard defeated Penn, 6-3, in the national final Feb. 28, posting a perfect 12-0 overall record. The Crimson also claimed the Ivy League crown and the Barhite Award, presented to the team with the best dual-match record.

Freshman Laura Gemmell and senior Katherine O’Donnell were also recognized for their success at the CSA Individual Championships. Gemmell completed her rookie season with a perfect 16-0 record as she won the individual national title, as well as the Ramsay Cup. O’Donnell finished first in the “B” Division at the CSA Individual Championships, and was awarded with the Holleran Cup.
