NEW HAVEN, Conn.—The No. 5 Yale women's squash team is gearing up for its final matches of the regular season this weekend. The Bulldogs are slated to host No. 1 ranked rival Harvard on Friday and will travel to Hanover, N.H., on Sunday to compete against No. 11 Dartmouth.

Yale will have to dig deep in its match against Harvard, who is the top-ranked team in both the National and Ivy League standings. Though the Crimson have yet to lose a match this season, a victory from the Bulldogs would give Yale a share of first place and a chance to share the Ivy League title. The Bulldogs will rely on their home-court advantage to give them an edge in what is sure to be a difficult match.

The Bulldogs will close out their regular season with a road trip to New Hampshire to take on Dartmouth. The Big Green has had a rocky season with a 4-8 record, but Yale will still need to be on its toes during their first away match in four weeks.

Friday's match will take place at 4:00 p.m. at the Brady Squash Center in Payne Whitney Gymnasium and can be streamed online here. On Sunday, play will begin at noon and can be watched online here.
