The Smith College Squash Team has just defeated both the Men’s (11th straight undefeated season) and Women’s Squash Team’s and moved into the #1 spot in the Google rankings for the search term “college squash”!
The move ahead of Trinity also moves Smith College Squash into the #1 spot as the College Squash Association and Squashtalk.com have decided to terminate their relationship – SquashTalk will no longer be the official news source for college squash, and will surely decline in the rankings.
It is difficult to say exactly why the Smith College Team has pulled ahead of Trinity; more beautiful campus, wonderful leadership opportunities for women, the actual town of Northampton’s vibrant life, Smith’s pioneering Engineering program for women? Perhaps it is the fact that Smith College no longer requires SAT scores to be admitted? Perhaps it is Smith College’s sense of history – many of the nation’s smartest women went to Smith before they were allowed to atend the Ivy’s?
