PHILADELPHIA - The tough schedule that men's squash has dealt with as of late did not get any easier on Saturday as Penn (4-6, 1-4 Ivy) dropped its second to last Ivy contest of the season against Harvard (7-2, 3-1 Ivy). The Quakers will now look for a victory tomorrow over Dartmouth to maintain their current fifth place slot in the Ivy League Standings.

Justin Ang picked up the lone victory on the day for the Quakers, winning the number nine position on the ladder. Ang dropped the opening game of his match, but a 13-11 win in the second game tiebreaker gave him the momentum that would carry him to a four-game victory. With the victory, Ang picked up his fourth victory on the season, while also notching his second Ivy League Victory of the year.

The Quakers were in every single match of the Ivy League clash, but just could win the critical points. James Clark, Porter Drake, and John Dudzik all pushed their matches to the full limit before being denied victory in the fifth game of their matches. Four other Quakers won a set before ultimately falling four games to the visitors.

The Quakers will be back in action tomorrow to wrap up Ivy League play. The will host Dartmouth at 11 a.m. They will also have another weekend at home, next Saturday, February 12 when they host Rochester to finish out the regular season.
