Squash Goes a New Way

Harvard has signed a new squash coach, Canadian Mike Way.

Canadian squash coach Mike Way has signed a contract to become the new head coach of men's and women's squash at Harvard, according to a report in the Harvard Crimson.  Way's highest-profile accomplishment is coaching fellow Canadian Jonathan Power to the number-one spot in squash's world rankings.  He currently coaches at the Oakville Club in Oakville, Ontario, outside Toronto.  Way has not coached a college team before, but has done significant work with junior players, including Harvard's top woman, Laura Gemmell  ’13 of  Toronto, the current intercollegiate champion who posted an undefeated record in her freshman campaign. Way succeeds Satinder Bajwa, who was let go in April after leading the Crimson women to a national title, while the men's squad finished fifth nationally. The department of athletics has not yet officially announced Way's appointment, but is expected to do so soon.
