Coach Raho, Three Women's Squash Players Honored by NESCAC

MEDFORD - The New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Women's Squash All-Conference teams were announced today and four honors were bestowed upon members of the Tufts team.

Sophomore Caroline Chin (pictured, middle) and freshman Riddhi Joshi (pictured, right) were named to the All-Conference first team, and freshman Aleezah Burhan (pictured, left) was selected to the second team. This is just the second time since NESCAC began awarding All-Conference honors in squash that Tufts has placed three players on the team, including 2019.

Additionally, Joe Raho was also voted as the 2022 NESCAC Women's Squash Coach fo the Year.

Joshi has played in the #1 position for Tufts in 11 of their 12 matches thus far in the 2021-22 season. She has victories over three other players who earned All-Conference honors today - Eliana Good from Hamilton (second team), Daksha Pathak from Amherst (first team) and Abby Holding from Middlebury (first team). Chin was Tufts' #2 player in 11 of 12 matches, and moved up to #1 in the other match and has wins over NESCAC foes from Hamilton, Connecticut College, Amherst and Middlebury. Burhan has six victories in the #4 position for Tufts including conference wins over Hamilton, Bates, Williams twice, Amherst and Middlebury.

Coach Raho (pictured, below right) directed Tufts to a second-place finish in the NESCAC Championship this winter, the team's best performance ever in the conference tournament. The Jumbos have an 8-4 overall record and won five out of their six matches against NESCAC teams during the regular-season. The Jumbos are ranked #12 nationally heading into this weekend's College Squash Association National Collegiate Team Championships. Raho is the women's squash conference Coach of the Year for the second time including 2019.
