NEW HAVEN, Conn.—The No. 8 ranked Yale men's squash team fell to No. 1 Trinity on Wednesday evening. Despite the disparity in rankings, the Bulldogs put up a fight against the top ranked team in the country and dealt the undefeated Bantams their toughest challenge of the season to date.

The 6-3 final score moves Trinity to 9-0. However, the loss of three games is significant for the team. Six of its nine matches were 9-0 contests. The only other team to take three games from Trinity was No. 2 Columbia.

The top of Yale's lineup showed a particularly intense level of competition with sophomore Spencer Lovejoy, first-year Harrison Gill, and senior Max Martin playing to five games apiece at the No. 1, 2, and 3 spots.

A match highlight came from Gill, who despite losing the first two games, came back to win three in a row by scores of 11-3, 11-5 and 11-8.

Yale also saw wins from senior Arjun Kochhar at the No. 4 spot and junior Jay Losty at No. 9. 

The match at the No. 1 spot was a nail-biter for the home crowd, who watched the advantage swap with every game. Lovejoy challenged his opponent for each and every point and never let up, falling in the finale 16-14.

Yale is back in action with a full weekend lineup, hosting both George Washington and Navy on Saturday.
