After an undefeated regular season for the national champion Yale women’s squash team, five of the team’s top players will compete in the individual national championships Friday through Sunday at Dartmouth’s John W. Berry Sports Center to finish off the season.
Friday, several Bulldogs players distinguished themselves in a strong performance at Dartmouth’s John W. Berry Squash Center in the national individual championships. Senior Logan Greer and freshmen Millie Tomlinson and Gwen Tilghman are still alive in the tournament.
Today, the No. 1 Bulldogs continued their undefeated season with a 6-3 win in the semifinals of the Howe Cup over No. 5 Princeton. The strong performance puts Yale into the finals of the national championship, where the team will face No. 2 Harvard for the second time in a week.
In the final match of the regular season the undefeated No. 2 Bulldogs (14-0, 6-0 Ivy) came back from a 4-3 deficit against No. 1 Harvard (8-1, 5-1 Ivy) to win 5-4 and capture the Ivy League championship.
Coming off a 7-2 win against Princeton on Saturday, the undefeated Yale Women’s Squash team (12-0, 4-0 Ivy) will host No. 10 Brown (Saturday at 12p.m.) at the Brady Squash Center. The Bulldog’s match against Brown will be its second to last match in the regular season, and a victory over Brown will move the Bulldogs one step closer to winning the Ivy League Championship.
The Bulldogs (12-0, 4-0 Ivy) defeated the No. 4 Princeton Tigers (6-2) by a 7-2 score on Saturday at the Brady Squash Center. This win continues Yale’s undefeated streak, leaving the Bulldogs with only two more regular season matches between an undefeated season and the Ivy League Title. The Bulldogs have yet to challenge No. 10 Brown or No. 1 Harvard, the defending Ivy League champions.
The undefeated Yale Bulldogs, on an 11 match winning streak this season (3-0 Ivy), will host the No. 4 Princeton Tigers (6-1) at Yale’s Brady Squash Center at 1p.m. on Saturday. The women have three more regular season matches to win the Ivy League and complete an undefeated regular season.
Coming off a strong win against No. 3 Trinity, the Yale women continued to dominate competition this weekend, defeating No. 6 Stanford, No. 16 Franklin and Marshall, and No. 15 Mount Holyoke, and No. 20 Colby by perfect 9-0 scores at the Yale Round Robin at the Brady Squash Center.
In a showdown between the two of the strongest college squash teams in the country, the Yale women once again showed off their depth and skill, handily defeating the No. 3-ranked Trinity squad by a 6-3 score. Although Yale lost tough matches in the No. 1 and No. 2 positions, Yale swept positions No. 3 through No. 5, and No. 7 through No. 9 for the win.
In a match-up of two of the top women’s squash programs in the country, No. 3 Trinity will host No. 2 Yale this Wednesday at 6 p.m. Both teams have gone undefeated so far this season, with identical 6-0 records. However, Yale has undoubtedly faced a tougher line-up, including No. 5 Penn and No. 7 Cornell.
The No. 2 Bulldogs showed off their depth and skill yet again, besting No. 7 Cornell by a 9-0 score. This convincing victory moves Yale to a 6-0 record (3-0 Ivy League) as they gather momentum for their rivalry match against No. 1 Trinity on Wednesday.
The No. 2 Bulldogs will compete against the No. 7 Big Red at Cornell this Saturday afternoon (12p.m.). The undefeated Yale squad is off to a strong start this season after besting No. 5 Penn and No. 8 Dartmouth in the past month. The Bulldogs have won three perfect contests thus far, and have dropped only seven individual matches the entire season.
The No. 2 Yale women’s squash team hopes to continue its strong start after a one-month break, and is set to play No. 14 Amherst, No. 9 Williams and No. 8 Dartmouth this Friday and Saturday. This season, the Bulldogs have already posted strong wins against Harvard and Dartmouth in the Ivy Scrimmage and Penn and Bates in the regular season.
