Yale Records Fourth Straight Victory on the Road

NEW YORK – After upsetting No. 4 Cornell on Saturday, the Yale men's squash team came away with another win on the road Sunday, defeating No. 9 Columbia 8-1 at the SL Green StreetSquash Center in New York.

The Bulldogs entered the match with the same lineup they used in their win over Cornell, and the result was identical. Yale swept the No. 2-9 positions, with seniors Hywel Robinson and Richard Dodd at Nos. 2 and 3, freshmen Sam Fenwick and Zachary Leman at Nos. 5 and 6, juniors Eric Caine and Charlie Wyatt at Nos. 7 and 8 and sophomore Joseph Roberts at No. 9 all winning in three games. Playing in the No. 4 slot, junior Neil Martin battled through four games but eventually delivered a point for the away team.

Senior Kenneth Chan had the hardest matchup of the day, squaring off at the No. 1 position against the second-ranked player in the nation, sophomore Ramit Tandon. Chan, who ranked No. 16 at the end of last season, lost 3-0. 

The Bulldogs will return to action on Saturday Jan. 19 with a home match against No. 5 Rochester.
