PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Yale women's squash team defeated the No. 8 Columbia Lions 8-1 today in the consolation round of the CSA Women's Squash National Championships. With the win, the No. 5 Bulldogs advance to play No. 6 Stanford tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. in the fifth/sixth place match.

Despite the absence of senior Jenny Scherl, who played the top spot for the Bulldogs for most of the season, the Yale women were able to use their depth to earn a win over the lower ranked Lions. Freshman Lucy Beecroft filled in nicely in the top spot for the Bulldogs, defeating Columbia's Tanvi Khanna 3-1 (8-11,11-5,11-8,11-5). The rest of the top nine stepped up to the challenge of playing a spot higher as well, losing only one point on the day.

The Yale women finish their season against the No. 6 Stanford Cardinal tomorrow, who they defeated 5-4 in the regular season meeting.
