Yale Takes On Princeton Live On-line Saturday

Feb. 1, 2007

New Haven, CT - Saturday Feb. 3 promises to be a memorable day at the Brady Squash Center, as the Bulldogs welcome back alums for a 1:30 p.m. showdown featuring both the men's and women's teams against Princeton. A video stream of the matches on court one, with audio commentary and updates from the other courts, will be available live on yalebulldogs.com and will also be archived shortly after the match.

The Yale men, ranked No. 5, are coming off 9-0 victories against Navy and Franklin & Marshall last Saturday in the Yale Round Robin. No. 2 Princeton (5-0, 3-0 Ivy) remained undefeated yesterday with a 9-0 rout of No. 4 Pennsylvania, a team that handed Yale its first loss back in December.

A week after dominating Haverford, Northeastern and Bates in the Yale Round Robin, the No. 2 Yale women (9-2, 2-1 Ivy) take on the streaking No. 5 Tigers (5-0, 3-0 Ivy). Princeton defeated No. 3 Trinity 6-3 on Monday and No. 1 Pennsylvania 7-2 yesterday. Only a week earlier, Trinity defeated Yale 5-4. Yale's other loss came in December to Pennsylvania. The three-time defending national champion Bulldogs look to get back on track against Princeton, a team Yale defeated 6-3 last season.

To add to the excitement, Saturday is Alumnae Day and Alumni Day at the Brady Squash Center.
