Elis Shutout Quakers

Dec. 4, 2004

New Haven, CT - The defending National Champions did not show any signs of rust, as the No. 1 Elis handily defeated No. 5 Penn 9-0 on Saturday afternoon at the Brady Squash Center.

In addition to winning every match, the Bulldogs won all of the match's 27 games. Defending Individual National Champion and the nation's top-ranked player, Michelle Quibell, was sharp, relinquishing only two points in her win. Quibell was one of four Elis to lose two or less points.

The most dominant results came at No. 3, as Catherine McLeod gave up just one point in winning 9-0, 9-1, 9-0. McLeod, Quibell, and Amy Gross form a trio occupying the nation's top three individual rakings.

"This women's team I have is so strong right now," Yale head coach Dave Talbott said. "The kids played focus... so we're off to a good start."

The Bulldogs scrimmage Harvard on January 5 before heading to Williams on January 14.
