Colby College women's squash starts the season ranked 19th in the country after finishing last year at 16th under head coach Sakhi Khan.
The Mules lose a number of key players from a year ago, including first position player Samantha Smith.

Three-sport athlete Kate Pistel played the second position for the entire season and finished the year with an 18-7 record. Pistel, a sophomore, also is an all-region lacrosse player and is on the women's soccer team at Colby.

Senior captain Ali Crevi was 14-11 while mainly playing the ninth position and Jae Paik returns after playing some at six, seven, and eight. Lily Greenberg also is back after going 4-0 at the seventh and eighth spots.
