HANOVER, N.H. - The Penn men's squash team closed out its regular season Sunday with a loss to Dartmouth in Hanover, N.H. The Quakers finished 1-5 in the Ivy League and will enter the CSA Team Championships with a 5-7 overall record, while Dartmouth earned its first Ivy win today to also finish 1-5 in the league and 9-6 overall.
On the heels of yesterday's 7-2 loss to Harvard, Penn again found wins from sophomore Thomas Mattsson and freshman Zuhaib Mohiuddin. In the No. 3 position Mattsson topped Michael Lewis in a commanding 3-0 match. On the contrary, Mohiuddin won a five-game battle over Michael Schrubb in the No. 7 spot. After a grueling first three games and down 2-1, Mohiuddin won the last two by scores of 11-4.
Junior Porter Drake also won his match in the No. 6 position by a score of 3-1. Drake came back after a tough 12-10 loss in the first game to win three straight.
Mark Froot had a 2-1 lead at No. 2, including a commanding 11-3 win in the first game, but Dartmouth's Nicholas Sisodia rallied to defeat the senior captain in five games. Brooks Russell also ended up on the wrong side of a 3-2 battle in the No. 8 position. Much like Froot, Russell held a 2-1 advantage, but could not hold on for the win.
Up next, the Quakers will compete in the CSA Team Championships Feb. 19-21 in New Haven, Conn.
