ITHACA, N.Y. - Men's squash closed out its regular season campaign with a 9-0 loss at the hands of No. 6 Cornell Sunday afternoon in Ithaca. The Quakers (5-7, 2-4 Ivy) finish the regular season in sixth place in the Ivy League Standings. Cornell (12-5, 4-3 Ivy) finished its regular season in fourth place inside the Ivies. Three players took games for Penn in their matches on Sunday, while the other six were defeated in straight games.
Thomas Mattsson took the first game against returning national runner-up Nicholas Sachvie, 11-9. However, Sachvie would recover and take the next three games at the No. 1 position. Mattsson finishes his regular season with a career-best six wins at No. 1. Fellow senior Trevor McGuinness also jumped out to a game lead with an 11-7 win in the first at No. 4. However, his opponent would also rebound with three straight game wins. McGuinness finishes his regular season with four victories.
Derek Chilvers was the final player to open his match with a win in the first game at No. 6.

Michael Mutscheller will also take six wins into the team championships after a tough loss at No. 8 against Cornell.
Justin Ang and Jack Maine each close the regular season with five victories after losses at Cornell. Ang dropped a pair of tight 11-9 games in the second and third against Cornell at No. 7. Maine dropped a pair of 11-6 games to start before an 11-7 third game loss to move to 5-5 this season.
