Men's Squash Faces Yale in First Round of Team Championships

PHILADELPHIA – For the No. 4 seed University of Pennsylvania men’s squash team, Friday’s match against No. 5 seed Yale will be a repeat of the Dec. 2 match in which the Quakers pulled of the upset of the then-No. 4 Bulldogs, 6-3. Friday’s match in the first round of the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Championships, slated to start at 12:45 p.m., should be one of the more intriguing ones in the opening round.

In their first meeting this season, Penn took advantage of wins at the top three spots. Gilly Lane won in three games at the No. 1 position, followed by 3-1 victories by Lee Rosen and Mark Froot. Ben Ende won, 3-1, at No. 5, while Andrew Zimmerman and Christopher Thompson round out Penn’s lineup with 3-0 victories.

No. 1 seed Trinity and No. 8 seed Dartmouth are also in the Quakers’ bracket.
