NEW HAVEN, Conn. —Friday the No. 3-ranked Yale men's squash team will be back on college squash's highest stage as they compete at the CSA Team Championships in Cambridge, Mass. The Bulldogs have put together an incredible season thus far, going 14-2 and taking second place in the Ivy League.
Yale begins the eight-team competition with a 2:30 p.m. match against No. 6 Rochester. The Bulldogs last faced the Yellowjackets on Jan. 18 in New York, where they earned a 6-3 win.
