Yale Men Start Off Season Strong

Yale Men Start Off Season Strong

PHILIDELPHIA, Pa.—The No. 9 Yale men's squash team upset No. 7 Drexel 6-3 on Friday evening, starting out their regular season on a good note.

The win is particularly sweet for the Bulldogs, who fell to Drexel twice last season in close 5-4 matches.

According to both Head Coach Dave Talbott and senior Captain Thomas Kingshott, it was this team's depth that made all the difference in the Bulldogs' debut match. The Yale men played strong from top to bottom, showcasing their ability to perform even with No. 1 spot Spencer Lovejoy out with appendicitis.

Yale will rest up for their next match tomorrow against Franklin & Marshall, which will begin at 12:00 p.m.
