NEW HAVEN, Conn -- The Yale women's squash team began its season today with a dominant 9-0 win over Franklin & Marshall.
Despite missing junior Jen Davis and freshman Helen Teegan due to injuries, the Bulldogs were able to exhibit their depth and win every match. Senior Maddie Tomlinson and junior Jessica Yacobucci moved into the 8 and 9 spots, respectively, to contribute to the Bulldog's winning effort.
"It was a solid start to our season," said Tomlinson. "We are excited to keep up the hard work and high energy for the rest of our matches."
Coach Dave Talbott was satisfied with his team's performance. "Overall, good energy and a solid match leading into Brown who are a stronger group overall and an Ivy opponent," said Talbott.
The Bulldogs will look to continue their success when they host Brown on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at the Brady Squash Center in Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
