PHILADELPHIA - Men's Squash will have its toughest test of the season as it hosts top-ranked Trinity on Saturday at noon. Penn (4-3) has won four matches in a row, but these streak pales in comparison to Trinity and its own 230 match winning streak. The 12-time defending national champions have not lost a match since February 22, 1998.
After starting the season 0-3, the Quakers climbed above .500 for the first time this season with a 5-4 victory over 11th ranked Williams last week. In that match, the Quakers used a comeback victory by William Browne to clinch the narrow victory. Freshman John Dudzik and Daniel Judd also picked up key victories in the number eight and nine spots respectively. The other two wins came from James Clark and Dan Greenberg. After dropping two of the first three games, Clark rallied to take the last two games and earn the victory at number two. Greenberg made much quicker work of his opponent as he won all three games in route to the number three victory.
17 nationally ranked players will be represented on the men's side this weekend. Penn brings nine ranked individuals to the contest, while Trinity brings eight players, all of whom are currently ranked in the top 50.
Below is a breakdown of the nationally ranked players:
No. 2 Parth Sharma
No. 6 Vikram Malhotra
No. 12 Andres Vargas
No. 15 Randy Lim
No. 16 Christopher Binnie
No. 17 Antonio Diaz Glez
No. 49 Johan Detter
