Bill Doyle resigns after successful run as Harvard Coach
March 17, 1999, Cambridge MA. Bill Doyle has resigned his job as Head Coach of Men's and Women's Squash at Harvard. Bill had been a hand-picked successor to Dave Fish. Bill had been only the third Harvard Coach in recent memory. Bill's reasons for resigned are reported to be personal, involving his desire to relocate to be closer to his family.
As people scramble to understand who might be the logical successor to Doyle, there is no clue as of yet as to what direction Harvard may go in. Bill had instituted a successful approach of sharing the men's and women's coaching duties among his team of three coach. Bill leaves behind the experience and talented assistant coaching team of Mohammed Ayaz, a little-known but highly talented individual, and Chris Brownell, former squash coach at Dartmouth College.
Men's US 1999 college championships concluded: Trinity wins the National Championship!
An exciting and eventful 1999 US college competitive season has come to a close. At the end, Trinity College, of Hartford Connecticut, claimed its first ever US National Squash championship, winning both the "dual-match" and team tournament titles. The National title has alway been totally dominated by Ivy League teams: Harvard with the most titles, Princeton with several, and Yale and Penn always top competitors. University of Western Ontario won two titles at the beginning of the 1980 decade; and now Trinity has broken through.
In the individual championships, Princeton Junior Peter Yik, a native of Vancouver, British Columbia, rode the tide of tournament upsets to claim the first title for Princeton in a number of years. He joined Julia Beaver, also of Princeton, as Princeton claimed both the men's and women's individual crowns.
