NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The 10th-ranked University of Pennsylvania men’s squash team suffered its second Ivy League defeat this, falling 7-2 to fourth-ranked Yale Saturday afternoon.
In what was poised to be a deciding week of league matches for the Quakers (6-5, 1-3 Ivy), instead has seen an opportunity slip away from the men’s team to position themselves in Ivy play and the College Squash Association rankings.
Against Yale on Saturday, Penn managed just two individual matches, won by freshman Hayes Murphy and junior Tyler Odell. Murphy won his third-straight match, and second in league play. Odell won in three games, picking up his fifth individual win of the season.
The Quakers will have the opportunity to rebound quickly after the loss to Yale (7-3, 2-1 Ivy), facing No. 13 Brown in Providence, R.I. Sunday beginning at 11 a.m. Click here to read a preview of the Penn and Brown match.
