Yale Cruises to 8-1 Victory Over Penn

Jan. 25, 2004

One day after defeating Navy 8-1 in Annapolis, the Elis beat Penn by the same score in a match that was rescheduled after a snowstorm earlier this season. Six Bulldogs won their matches by 3-0 scores.

Julian Illingworth defeated Gilly Lane in the No. 1 match by a score of 9-6, 9-4, 9-5, while Gavin Cumberbatch posted a 3-0 victory against Ben Ende in the No. 3 contest, 9-6, 9-3, 9-0.

In the No. 2 match, Anshul Manchanda won in four games, defeating Rich Repetto 9-4, 6-9, 9-3, 9-6.

The Bulldogs will travel to Princeton next Saturday to take on the Tigers in a rematch of what was one of last year's most exciting games.
