Bulldogs Return to Top Form

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Spirits are high on the trip home for the men's squash team after two consecutive wins from the Bulldogs this Saturday.

The final two of seven straight away matches, Yale gelled in today's competitions against George Washington and the Naval Academy, netting scores of 7-2 and 9-0

Yale secured wins against the George Washington Colonials in three straight games in their bottom four positions, showcasing their depth and presenting a strong challenge to the Colonials on their own courts.

Freshman Spencer Lovejoy's performance from the No. 1 spot highlighted the Bulldogs' resilience and featured multiple rallies from both Lovejoy and his competitor. Ultimately, Lovejoy secured the win 8-11, 11-7, 11-4, 6-11, 11-1.

Later in the day, Yale's confidence allowed them to sweep the Naval Academy's Midshipmen 9-0.

Five of Yale's nine victories were earned over three straight games, leaving little room for the Mids to strike back.

Sophomore Jay Losty and Freshman Calvin McCafferty both came back from first-game losses, taking advantage of the Bulldogs' momentum to bounce back and win 3-1 from both the No. 8 and 7 spots, respectively.

The Bulldogs will look to carry this momentum through to next weekend when they are slotted to take on Princeton and Penn at home at the Brady Squash Center in Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
