Jan. 19, 2004

New Haven, CT - The battle for the top spot in collegiate men's and women's squash takes center stage Wednesday night at the Brady Squash Center as Trinity visits Yale. Both Trinity squads have the No. 1 position with the Bulldogs holding No. 2 on both sides. The women square off at 5 p.m. on the fourth floor of the Payne Whitney Gym, while the men's match begins at 7.

Trinity women's squash, two-time defending collegiate champion, not only holds the top spot in the College Squash Association's national rankings but also has the top two ranked players as of latest poll. The Yale women, led by head coach Mark Talbott, are second in the CSA poll and Michelle Quibell is currently ranked No. 4, while six of the top 10 players listed play for the Bulldogs or the Bantams.

Three of the top-four ranked players in men's squash are from the two perennial powers. Trinity, which has won six straight national titles, has the No. 2 and 3 players with Yale's No. 4 ranked Julian Illingsworth looking to change things this week. Head coach Dave Talbott leads the Bulldogs into the mid-season showdown.
