Bulldogs Beat Harvard 6-3, Win Ivy Scrimmages

New Haven, Conn. - The Yale women's squash team won the Ivy Scrimmages Sunday at the Brady Squash Center.

The team dominated play throughout the weekend, beating Dartmouth 8-1 and Penn 7-2 on Saturday.  In Sunday's final, the Bulldogs bested Harvard 6-3.

The win establishes the Bulldogs as the team to beat in the nation this year.  Entering the weekend, the CSA's preseason poll had Yale ranked No. 2 behind Harvard.  Dartmouth and Penn were ranked No. 8 and No. 5, respectively.  

The victory also marks the first time that both the men's and women's squash teams have won the Ivy Scrimmages in the same year.  The Bulldogs could not have hoped for a better start, and expectations should be high when the team kicks off its regular season Dec. 4 against Penn and Bates College.
