Jesse Lytle is entering his fourth season as an assistant coach for the Haverford College women's squash team in 2018-19.
In 2017-18, the Fords finished with the No. 30 overall ranking, the highest year-end rank for the program since the 2008-09 campaign. The Fords also posted their most wins in a single season since 2014-15. In 2016-17, the Fords reached the final of the E Division at the CSA Team Championships, returning to the final for the first time since 2013-14.
In 2015-16, the Haverford Women’s Squash team took home the Chafee Award. The honor was bestowed upon the Fords because the team demonstrated the qualities of sportsmanship, teamwork, character, and improvement.
During a very successful first season in 2014-15, the Fords made the jump to the Epps Cup at the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Championships for the first time since the 2011-12 season and set a program record with 11 victories.

He represents the President and the College on wide ranging business and is the administrative lead in the Office of the President, serving as Secretary of the Board of Managers and Assistant Secretary of the Corporation, as well as Chief Sustainability Officer. The Chief of Staff plays a lead role in institutional planning and assessment and oversees the Office of Institutional Research. Before coming to Haverford in 2012, Lytle held administrative, research, and teaching roles at Amherst College, the University of Pennsylvania, and Mount Holyoke College.
