Three Named to Women's Squash All-Ivy Team

PRINCETON, N.J. - Three Penn women's squash players were named to the All-Ivy team, the league office announced Monday. Sophomores Kristen Lange and Sydney Scott and junior Alisha Turner were among those honored. Penn, which won the Ivy League with a perfect regular season, led all schools with three honorees.

Kristen Lange headed the Penn ladder for much of the season, and was the nation's No. 2 ranked player all year long. She fell to Yale's Miranda Ranieri, who took Ivy League Player of the Year honors, in the finals of the Collegiate Squash Association Individual Championship. Lange went undefeated in three matches at Howe Cup, helping the Quakers finish second overall at the event.

Sydney Scott also spent time at the top of Penn's ladder this season. Ranked sixth in the nation, she also went 3-0 at the Howe Cup, helping Penn defeat Trinity from the No.3 spot on the ladderto advance to the Howe Cup finals.

Alisha Turner worked her way to the No. 2 position on Penn's ladder, where she was a mainstay over the second half of the season. Although she suffered a knee injury during the Howe Cup, Turner was an integral part of the Quakers' perfect regular season and their run to an Ivy League title. Her victory at No. 2 against Princeton on January 30 sparked a tremendous comeback that saw Penn come from down 4-0 to take the match, 5-4, propelling them to the top spot in the national rankings.
