Women's Squash Begins Ivy Schedule Saturday

Follow @PennSquash

PHILADELPHIA – It has been six weeks since the University of Pennsylvania’s women’s squash team has played a scheduled match. Now, after returning from winter break and a training trip to Amsterdam, the Quakers travel to face off against Ivy opponents Dartmouth and Harvard this weekend.

Penn (3-0, 0-0 Ivy) began the season with three victories over Williams College, George Washington and Stanford, with the Quakers dropping just one individual match. Now, Penn looks to improve upon its 5-2 Ivy record from a year ago.

Ranked third, the Red and Blue face eighth-ranked Dartmouth (1-1, 0-1 Ivy) at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Penn has won the last 11 meetings between the two schools, including a 9-0 victory last year.

The Quakers will then travel to Cambridge, Mass., in a battle of top-ranked teams, to take on No. 1 Harvard (4-0, 1-0 Ivy) Sunday at 12 p.m. Penn dropped last year’s match 6-3 at home and is looking for its first victory over the Crimson since February of 2008.
