About the Program
The Bowdoin's men's squash team is consistently one of the best programs in the country, and has the facility to match. The program was instituted in 1967, and has boasted numerous winning seasons, including the Summers Division National Championship in 1993-94. More recently, the program ranks high among its NESCAC rivals and placed 14th at Nationals in 2005-06. Tomas Fortson, hired in 2000 as the squash coach at Bowdoin, has brought a contagious energy to the program. Competing against some of the nation's best programs in an all-division format, the team also hosts one sanctioned USSRA tournament and a handful of collegiate tournaments per year.

Bowdoin is one of the few schools in the nation that offers such a high number of playing opportunities. The sparkling new Lubin Family Squash Center, completed in the spring of 2000, has seven international-standard squash courts, with three levels of spectator seating. Eleven additional courts at Sargent Gymnasium provide even more for practice and recreation. In addition, the Brunswick community has embraced the game of squash, with several high-level players residing in the Mid-Coast area and playing on campus.
