Women's Squash Jumps to No. 3 Nationally

Dunlap Women's Squash Team Rankings

PHILADELPHIA - After a big win over Princeton to get its season started, women's squash is up two spots in the latest team rankings, jumping from its preseason position of No. 5 up to No. 3. This bump in the rankings comes a week after the Quakers downed the previously third-ranked Tigers, 6-3. In addition to moving ahead of Princeton, the women's team also passed a Trinity squad that was previously ranked fourth in the nation.

The top two spots held steady with Harvard maintaining the top ranking while Yale remains in the second slot. Princeton slides down one slot to the No. 4 position and Trinity rounds out the top-five teams. This marks the first time that Penn has been ranked in the top-three nationally since the 2009-10 season. During that year, the Quakers entered the Howe Cup as the third-ranked team and advanced to Howe Cup finals. The five juniors that are currently on the roster were all freshman during the Howe Cup that season.

The Quakers will look to prove themselves worthy of this national ranking this Saturday against No. 9 Williams. Both the men's and women's matches against Williams will start at 11 a.m.
