Jane Austin Stauffer was the ultimate racquet-woman, as she dominated the opposition on both the squash and tennis courts.  She captained two undefeated Quakers tennis teams in 1948 and 1949, winning the Middle States Intercollegiate Tennis title every year except 1947.


On the squash courts, Stauffer’s national success came post-graduation.  Since 1950, Stauffer won 16 different U.S. Squash and Racquet Association championships.  She won the national women’s singles title in 1951 and won women’s doubles titles in 1950, 1961, 1964, 1970, 1975 and 1978.  Stauffer won mixed doubles titles in 1969, 1972-74, and 1976-77.  She also won three national senior women’s doubles titles from 1977-79.


On a local level, Stauffer garnered six Philadelphia district women’s singles championships and won the Pennsylvania state women’s singles title three times.


For her collegiate accomplishments in athletics and academics, Stauffer was presented the Fathers’ Trophy in 1949.
