Maura Myers is in her sixth season as head coach of the women's squash team. Under the guidance of Myers, the GW squash program quickly established itself as an elite program. Myers was named the recipient of the Chaffee Award two years ago and lead her team to a final team ranking of 15th in 2009 and competed for the Walker Cup (C Division). The Chaffee award is given to the coach whose team has demonstrated the qualities of competitiveness and court demeanor that characterized Clarence C. Chaffee.
In Myers' debut year, the team set a record for the most wins in a season and they have finished the past four seasons ranked in the top 30 nationally, including No. 22 two years ago and No. 15 last season, the highest position in its brief history.
Myers is a 2004 graduate of Colby College (Waterville, ME) where she played squash for four years and served as team captain her senior season. Myers, a native of McLean, VA, and current resident of Washington, DC, was also a member of the field hockey team and the women's rugby club team at Colby.
