In an extremely significant development for college squash, George Washington University (GWU) Men's and Women's Squash teams announce that the introduction of the first ever Athletic Schoalrships funds for squash players entering GWU in the Fall of 2009.

They become one of the very few college squash programs to offer athletic scholarship. GWU is a NCAA Division 1 varsity squash program and is therefore eligible to award athletic schoalship. Neither Ivy League nor NESCAC schools offer athletic scholarships, as a matter of their league's policies, while Division One schools (currently GWU and Stanford are the Division One schools offering Varsity Squash programs with Northwestern, Virginia, USC and Georgtown and others having active club teams), by contrast, have the ability to offer such athletic merit - based scholarships.

For the first time in the history of its varsity squash program, GW will offer Athletic Schoalrship funds to recruited squash team players, Men's Head Squash Coach, Wendy Lawrence and Women's Coach , Maura Myers announced this week.

"These scholarship funds will hopefully allow us to be more competitive in the college squash recruiting process", said Coach Lawrence.

Both the Men's and Women's GWU programs have seen significant progress this year in their early season results. Men's CSA December 15th rankings were just released last night, and GWU moved up to 24th, just within the third "division" of play, from a preseason spot of #25.
