Seton Hall University began its squash program during the fall of 1962, when Rev. Owen W. Garrigan was named the first head squash coach in school history.
Garrigan played squash at Seton Hall Prep in his youth before taking over the Pirates' collegiate program. The squad spent one season as a club sport before being elevated to varsity status the following year, making the 1963-64 season its first as an intercollegiate program.
The Pirates, who competed in Walsh Auditorium, were members of the Metropolitan Squash League. They experienced their high-water mark during the 1964-65 season, posting a 4-5 overall record while placing third in the Metropolitan Conference.
However, the program struggled to post winning seasons over the ensuing decade and the team had its last full season in 1973-74, before playing its final match in the winter of 1974.
