Men’s Squash Receives Barnaby Award at Banquet

For the third time since 1988, the men’s squash team was presented with the Barnaby Award at the National Team Championships banquet. The award, named for Hall of Fame Harvard squash coach Jack Barnaby, recognizes the team that has improved the most over the previous season.
Under head coach Mark Devoy, the Red put together a 13-5 overall record (4-2 Ivy) in 2008-09 and soundly defeated Dartmouth, 7-2, at the CSA National Championships en route to finishing sixth in the country. Cornell competed in the Potter Cup “A” division against regional powerhouses like Trinity, Princeton and Yale, to name a few.
