PHILADELPHIA – After a month off, the University of Pennsylvania women’s squash team is preparing for a huge weekend clash at No. 1 Harvard. The Crimson have held the top spot in the CSA rankings for the entire season and will be seeking to avenge last year’s 5-4 defeat that paved the way to the Ivy League title for the Quakers.
Penn is off to a dominant start to say the least. The No. 2 ranked Quakers are 36-0 in matches, 108-1 in individual games, and are winning games by an average score of 11-3.
Harvard holds a 39-6 record over Penn, but four of the Quakers wins came at the Crimson’s Murr Center Squash Courts. The Crimson are 2-0 on the season with an 8-1 win over Stanford and a 9-0 win at Dartmouth.
Penn will continue their roadtrip on Sunday when they head to No. 9 Dartmouth. The Big Green are 2-2 on the year with wins over George Washington and Franklin and Marshall. They will try and right the ship after suffering a 7-2 loss to Trinity in their final match before the break.
