Stakes Rise for Bulldogs in Final Weekend of Regular Competition

Stakes Rise for Bulldogs in Final Weekend of Regular Competition

NEW HAVEN, Conn.—The Yale men's squash team will finish off their regular season this weekend in a set of high-stakes matches against Ivy League competitors Dartmouth and Harvard.

The Bulldogs (7-5, 4-1 Ivy) are tied for second in the Ivy League. If the men win their match against fifth-ranked Dartmouth (6-6, 2-3 Ivy) on Friday, they will be competing for a piece of the Ivy League title when they play the Ivy League's first ranked team, Harvard (9-1, 5-0 Ivy), on Sunday.
 
The defending Ivy Champion Bulldogs have hit their stride over the past two weekends of competition, and are hopeful that they will continue to build upon their current four-win streak.
Despite the Bulldogs' recent success, the team will aim to improve their skills in this weekend's matches; the College Squash Association Championships are scheduled to begin on February 17. 
 
Yale will play Dartmouth at home at the Brady Squash Center in Payne Whitney Gymnasium on Friday starting at 5:00 p.m.
 
The team will then travel to Massachusetts to play Harvard at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
