MASSACHUSETTS - The Penn men's squash team traveled to Williams this morning and endured a grueling four-hour match to take a 6-3 decision. They then hopped in vans and journeyed to Amherst, where they took a convincing 8-1 victory to sweep two of the Little Three teams.
"The Williams match is always a hard-fought match, and this year was no exception," said head coach Craig Thorpe-Clark.
Ryan Rayfield, Joey Raho and Spencer Kurn gave the Quakers an early 3-0 lead. Rayfield earned a 3-1 victory at the No.9 position, while Raho won 3-0 at No. 6 and Kurn took a tough 3-2 match at No. 3.
Williams got back into the match with wins at No. 8 and No. 2, but James Clark extended the Quakers' lead with a 3-1 win at No. 5. Parker Justi's 3-0 win at No. 7 and Lee Rosen's hard-fought 3-2 victory at No. 1 clinched the match for Penn.
After the grueling match, the team traveled to Amherst and did not let up. The team only fell at the No. 2 position, claiming all eight other victories.
