Ann Wetzel was a two-sport athlete, finding plenty of success on the squash and tennis courts, where she would coach Penn teams for over two decades following her collegiate career.


Wetzel was a member of the University of Pennsylvania’s 191 undefeated women’s squash team, where she was the Middle States tournament runner-up, as a sophomore.  The same season, she was the Philadelphia squash racquets champion.


Although Wetzel had an outstanding tennis career, her greatest achievement was winning a national squash championship her junior year.


Wetzel went on to coach the Penn’s women’s squash team from 1974 through 1992, compiling a 154-116 record (.570 winning percentage). She also coached tennis from 1975 through 1978, with a 30-9 record (.769).
