Inducted into National Hall of Fame

Hobart College Squash and Tennis Head Coach Carol Weymuller will be one of four people inducted into the U.S. SQUASH Hall of Fame on Oct. 4, at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. Preparing for her 14th season with the Statesmen, Weymuller will be inducted with her husband, Fred, Kenton Jernigan, and Al Molloy Jr. Carol Weymuller is the only winner of these three U.S. SQUASH awards: the President’s Cup (1994), Feron’s Sportsmanship Trophy (1988), and Achievement Bowl (1980). She was the Heights Casino junior program director from 1970s, started women’s squash in New York City during that time, and served as the president of the U.S. Women’s Squash Racquets Association, which later merged with U.S. SQUASH. As a player, Weymuller was ranked in the top 10 in the nation during the late ’70s on four straight U.S. squads that competed in the World Team Championships, serving as the team captain in 1981 and 1983. A professional in Rochester from 1980 through 1995, she won 11 consecutive Rochester Women’s Championships. As a coach, Weymuller’s influence and importance to the game, particularly in New York City, cannot be overstated. The Weymullers started the NYC junior program, serving as mentors to some of the top young players of the era. Carol founded an annual professional women’s tournament at the Heights Casino. Highly successful, the tournament is now in its fourth decade and was renamed in her honor in 1981. During Weymuller’s tenure at Hobart, she has guided the Statesmen to a pair of Liberty League Championships and the 2007 Conroy Trophy at the CSA Team Championships. Over the past five seasons, she has mentored 23 All-Liberty League selections, two conference rookies of the year, and a conference player of the year. Weymuller’s excellence has twice been recognized by her peers with the Liberty League Coach of the Year award. Located at the Brady Squash Center in New Haven, Conn., the U. S. SQUASH Hall of Fame is open to all U.S. players (hardball, softball, singles, doubles, pro, amateur), as well as individuals who helped the game grow and flourish. A person should have been a U.S. resident for a substantial portion of his/her career or had otherwise had a personal and significant impact on the U.S. game. A player must be retired from open singles competition for five years before consideration. The key requirements are dominance on the court or impact off the court and overall integrity and sportsmanship.
