The marquee match of the weekend features the Penn and Yale women, who will face off Saturday at 11 a.m. on the Bulldogs' Brady Squash Center. Yale -- which is playing its regular-season opener -- is ranked No. 2 in the latest College Squash Association rankings, while Penn is fifth. The Quakers, of course, are 2-0 after rolling to 9-0 wins over Cornell and Franklin & Marshall. These teams have actually already seen each other once this year, as Yale knocked Penn off at the Ivy Scrimmages a few weeks ago.
On the men's side, Yale is also ranked second nationally while the Penn men are ninth. The Quakers are 0-2, having fallen 5-4 to Cornell and 8-1 on Wednesday at F&M.
Following the Yale matches, Penn's teams are scheduled to face Bates that afternoon at 3 p.m. at the Brady Center. Both Bobcats teams enter the weekend ranked 12th nationally.
Sunday's matches are scheduled for 11 a.m. (men) and 1 p.m. (women) at Brown's Brodsky Squash Pavilion. Brown's men's team enters the weekend ranked 14th, while the women are 10th. Both of them are 1-1 on the young season, losing to Harvard but beating Tufts. Both Bears teams face Princeton on Saturday before hosting the Quakers.
