Bulldogs Finish Third In Ivy Scrimmage

Nov. 11, 2007

The Bulldogs finished third in the Ivy Scrimmage this weekend at the Brady Squash Center. Yale recovered from a semifinal loss to Princeton to edge Harvard, 5-4, in the third-place match.

On Saturday, the Bulldogs scored a resounding 7-2 win over the Dartmouth Big Green to secure a spot in the semifinals against Princeton. The Tigers, however, proved to be too much for the Elis, defeating Yale by a score of 7-2. Princeton would eventually go on to lose to Penn in the finals.

Despite the loss to Princeton, head coach Dave Talbott was satisfied with the close 5-4 victory against Harvard in the third-place match.

"I'm very pleased with the women," he said. "Our Nos. 2 and 3, Logan [Greer] and Alia [Aziz], didn't play. We hadn't beaten Harvard in two years, so, even though it's a scrimmage, that was good."

Particularly impressive for the Bulldogs were captain Miranda Ranieri and Tara Wadhwa, each of whom won three matches over the weekend.

Yale will kick off its regular season schedule this Friday, when Stanford, led by former Yale head coach Mark Talbott, will travel to New Haven to face the Bulldogs at 3 p.m.
