Bulldogs Finish Season 10-4

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The Yale Women's Squash Team ended the regular season in style with a 7-2 home win over No. 9 Dartmouth. 

The Elis finished the regular season 10-4, with a 6-1 record at the Brady Center. They finished 5-2 in the Ivy-League.

Of the nine athletes who played for the Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon, seven recorded sweeps. No. 4 Aishwarya Bhattacharya was especially dominant. Through three games she surrendered only five total points and won her final game 11-0. 

Both No. 3 Celine Yeap and No. 5 Emily Sherwood finished their regular season careers with sweeps.

After the match, Yeap had the following to say about her time on the squash team:

"Being part of the Yale squash team is special in so many ways. My teammates have inspired me with their hard work and determination, on and off the court. They have taught me the importance of respect, humility, teamwork and many other lessons that I will never get to learn in the classroom. It is my privilege to be representing Yale with this group of amazing young women."

The Elis compete in the CSA Women's Team Championships on February 22 in Hartford, Conn.
