Men's Squash Aims for No. 2 Princeton

PHILADELPHIA – The No. 4 ranked University of Pennsylvania men’s squash team looks to remain unbeaten in Ivy League play Wednesday as they face No. 2 Princeton at 5 p.m. Princeton (4-0, 2-0 Ivy) also boasts an unblemished record in the Ancient Eight; defeating Brown and Cornell earlier in the season.

Penn (7-1, 3-0 Ivy) suffered its first defeat of the season at No. 1 Trinity, 9-0. The Quakers look to get back to their winning ways as they have recorded five shut outs this season. One match that will draw a lot of interest will be at the No. 1 position as Gilly Lane, ranked No. 5, will face second-ranked Mauricio Sanchez. Lane will look for redemption as last year Sanchez beat him in three games.

The Tigers took last season’s match, 8-1, at Ringe Courts. Jacob Himmelrich, C’06, had Penn’s only win. Trailing 2-1, he took his final two games, 9-8 and 10-8.

The No. 1 ranked Penn women’s team faces No. 5 Princeton women right after the men at 7 p.m.
