The Yale Men's Squash Team finished third in the 2018 Ivy League Scrimmage last weekend at the Brady Center inside Payne Whitney Gym. One of the highlights was beating Columbia, the 2018 Ivy League Champions, 6-3. On Saturday, Yale opened with a 7-2 win over Dartmouth. Later that afternoon in the semifinals, the men lost to Harvard 7-2. Overall, this was a great showing, validating a strong, two-months of training, according to Brooks G. Ragen Director of Squash, Dave Talbott.
"The men lost six seniors and have five first-year players," says Talbott. "These guys came in at a high level, and the returning players were ready to recommit to a new fall program." Sr. Assistant Coach, Lynn Leong and Assistant Tim Lasusa worked hard to implement a new training program which is seeing immense results, while strength coach Mike Harris has been a key factor in the team's fall training. This weekend we saw concrete results in all pieces of our game. Back to work now for the matches that will count."
The Yale Men take on Drexel on Nov. 30 for the opening regular season match.
