Three Bulldogs Named All-Ivy
March 10, 2008
Three members of the Yale squash teams were named to the men's and women's all-Ivy squads on Monday. Senior captain and national individual champ Miranda Ranieri and freshman Logan Greer represented the Bulldogs for the women, and senior Max Samuel was selected for the men's team.
The selection of Ranieri was no surprise, as she compiled a 14-1 dual match record in 2007-2008 and blazed through the Ramsay Division at the CSA Individual Championships en route to her first national individual title. Ranieri joins Anita Nador, Berkeley Belknap, Michelle Quibell, Amy Gross, and Catherine McLeod as the only Bulldogs to earn four straight selections to the women's all-Ivy team.
Freshman Logan Greer entered Yale at No. 1 in the U.S. junior rankings, and she backed up her outstanding pedigree with consistently dominant play throughout the season. Greer posted a 13-2 dual match record playing in the No. 2 slot, and won her only match playing at No. 1, against Amherst's Alexandra Dalglish.
For the men, Max Samuel picked up his first all-Ivy selection. Samuel played valiantly at No. 1 for the Bulldogs all season, battling through many difficult matches in a stacked Ivy League. The senior picked up key wins against Williams, Wesleyan, Amherst, and Brown.
