Women's squash honored with sportsmanship award


The Hamilton College women's squash program and head coach Jamie King received the 2011 Chaffee Award during the College Squash Association team championships at Princeton University on Feb. 19.

The award is given annually to a coach whose team has demonstrated the qualities of sportsmanship, teamwork, character, and improvement. This is the first time the Hamilton women have earned this honor. King and the men's squash team received a similar award in 2008 and 2010.

In 1987, the Williams College women's squash team donated this award in honor of their former coach, Clarence C. Chaffee. Chaffee began Williams' squash program in 1938, coached the school's first intercollegiate team in 1939, and led the program until his retirement in 1970.

The Hamilton women reached the finals of the Walker Cup (C Division) at the 2011 championship. Franklin & Marshall College edged the Continentals 5-4 for the Walker Cup on Feb. 20.
