NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Yale men's squash team opened its regular season schedule with a

convincing 9-0 victory over Williams College Friday night at the Brady Squash Center. Yale (1-0) only dropped two

total games as a team, with 3-0 wins at the No. 1 through No. 8 positions.

Freshman Kenneth Chan began his collegiate career with a dominant performance at the No. 1 position, dropping only five combined points in the first two games. Fellow freshmen Richard Dodd and Hywel Robinson, playing in the No. 4 and 5 positions respectively, also earned their first wins at Yale.

Senior captain Todd Ruth earned a victory over Ethan Buchsbaum in a hard fought match at the No. 2 position.  Sophomore Samuel Clayman overcame a 2-1 deficit to earn the victory over Jeremy Herrmann at the No. 9 position, winning the fourth game 11-7 before emerging victorious in a thrilling 15-13 fifth game.
