NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The No. 2 Yale Men's Squash Team has much to boast about this season. However, the season is not over yet, and the Bulldogs will have one last chance to show off their talent at the CSA Individual Championships in Hanover this weekend. Seven Bulldogs have qualified for the tournament, with five in the Pool Division, and two in the Molloy Division.
First, the Bulldogs completed an undefeated Ivy League season and captured the Ivy Title outright in Cambridge. Next, the team returned to Cambridge to take second at the CSA Nationals, placing second to squash juggernaut No. 1 Trinity, who has won 13 consecutive National Titles. The Bantams have not dropped a match in over a decade – but came very close to doing so against Yale. Yale had the match tied at tied 4-4, and Trinity edged out the win in the last game for a 5-4 score.
