HARTFORD, Conn. – The No. 2 ranked Yale men's squash team fought hard in a tough match against No. 1 Trinity, but was bested 9-0.

The Bulldogs' skill in play was more competitive than the results indicate. Freshman Spencer Lovejoy, junior Max Martin and senior captain TJ Dembinski all handed strong games to their competitors, fighting for the lead on their courts.

Despite their loss, the team is still on the hunt for a piece of the Ivy Championship and have their sights set on the College Squash Association (CSA) National Championships later this Winter.
 
The Yale men will continue on to their fourth of seven consecutive away matches on Friday, when they are set to compete against the St. Lawrence Saints in Canton, N.Y.  The match will begin at 2 p.m.
