Men's Squash Falls at No. 9 Yale, 7-2

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The University of Pennsylvania’s men’s squash team dropped a 7-2 decision to No. 9 Yale on Sunday afternoon in New Haven. With the loss, the sixth-ranked Quakers fall to 7-5 overall this season and 3-2 in the Ivy League.

Penn’s pair of wins came from arguably the Quakers’ two hottest players, Hayes Murphy and Jonathan Zeitels. Murphy improved to a team-best 10-2 this season with a sweep of Kah Wah Cheong at No. 3. Zeitels, meanwhile, still has yet to drop a match when playing in the top-nine (6-0). The sophomore registered an 11-8, 8-11, 11-2, 11-5 triumph over Calvin McCafferty in the No. 9 slot.

The Red and Blue had a pair of tight losses, including Anders Larson dropping a 3-2 contest (11-7, 15-13, 5-11, 3-11, 11-9) at No. 4, and David Yacobucci falling in four games (11-7, 8-11, 11-6, 11-5) at No. 6.
