Colby College (founded as the Maine Literary and Theological Institution renamed Waterville College in 1821, renamed as Colby University in 1867, reestablishing itself as Colby College in 1899.) is a private liberal arts college located on Mayflower Hill in Waterville, Maine, United States.
Colby was founded in 1813, and was the first all-male college in New England to accept female students in 1871, until they were resegregated in 1890. The college named after prominent Baptist preacher Gardner Colby, who funded the school while it was in financial troubles.
Sakhi Khan, head coach of Colby’s men’s and women’s squash teams, is no slouch on the court. As a junior player Khan was ranked number one in the United States. While at Tufts he was a four-time All-American, consistently ranked in the top three nationally, won the Massachusetts State Championship three times and reached the NCAA Championship finals.
After college Khan competed on the World Professional Tour for seven years, represented the United States in the Pan Am Games and won the World Teaching Professional Championships twice.
