PHILADELPHIA - Following another impressive season on the courts in which women's squash finished the season ranked fifth in the country as a team, several individuals are now being recognized for their personal success. Nabilla Ariffin, Rachael Goh, and Annie Madeira have all been named All-Ivy Performers following outstanding seasons.

Ariffin was Penn's lone unanimous selection to the All-Ivy team. The Penn sophomore compiled a record of 9-9 playing at the number one position for the majority of the season. Ariffin was also an impressive 4-2 in Ivy League play during the regular season. In the Ramsay Division of the CSA Individual Championships, Ariffin went 2-2, advancing to the Round of 16. Ariffin finished the season ranked 12th in the CSA Final Individual Rankings.

Goh received All-Ivy recognition following a 12-5 season that included a 4-2 record in Ivy League competition. She played primarily at number two, but also won her lone match at number one and won all three of her matches at number three. She finished up her season going 2-1 at the Howe Cup and 2-1 in the Ramsay Division of the CSA Individual Championships, advancing all the way to quarterfinal round. Goh finishes the season as the 10th ranked player in the CSA Individual Rankings.

Madeira was the final Penn player to receive All-Ivy accolades following her senior campaign. She played primarily at the number three position. She finished her season with a 13-4 overall record and a perfect 6-0 mark in the Ivy League regular season. Madeira also went 2-1 during the Howe Cup and finished out her career with one victory during Ramsay Division play of the CSA Individual Championships. 11 of her victories came in three-game sweeps during the season. Madeira finished the season ranked 14th in the CSA Individual Rankings.

In addition to the All-Ivy honors for Ariffin, Goh, and Madeira, Pia Trikha and Yarden Odinak also finished the season ranked in the top 22 of the CSA Individual Rankings.

Trikha finished the season ranked 19th in the polls. She racked up a team-high 16 wins throughout the season. Trikha started out the season winning 14 consecutive matches and entered the CSA Individual Championships undefeated. She played every team competition during the season at the number five position.

Odinak finishes the season as the 22nd ranked player in the CSA Individual Rankings. She started off the year winning her first 13 matches, including an undefeated regular season. Odinak finished the season with a 14-3 record playing primarily at number four, but as high as number two.

There is plenty of reason for optimism looking ahead to next season as Ariffin, Goh, Trikha, and Odinak are currently finishing up their sophomore year on campus. Madeira is the lone senior on the women's team, but she has been a constant in the Quaker's ladder, racking up 55 victories during her four years at Penn.
