PHILADELPHIA – The nonconference season is over for the University of Pennsylvania men’s squash team. From now until the CSA Championships at the end of February, the 10th-ranked Quakers will be facing Ivy opponents, beginning with No. 7 Princeton tonight at 6 p.m. in Ringe Courts.
Penn (5-2, 1-1 Ivy) defeated Drexel last Wednesday, 7-2, to get itself back on track after tough road losses to No. 2 Harvard and No. 1 Trinity (Conn.). The Red and Blue will look to continue build upon that momentum into the remainder of the Ivy season, starting against the Tigers (3-3, 1-1 Ivy).
Historically the Ivy rival has had the Quakers number in the matchup, leading the overall series 81-11. Penn will look to reverse the trend against Princeton, with a deep lineup led by co-captains John Dudzik (5-2) and Jack Maine (5-2), and strengthened by Michael Mutscheller (5-2), Rahil Fazelbhoy (4-3), and George Lemmon (5-2).
