NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The No. 2 Yale women's squash team will travel to face No. 15 Amherst's squad on Sunday as the regular season swings into gear.
The matchup will be an important one as Yale looks to shake off the rust of winter break and round into peak form for the tough slate of matches that await the team next weekend, when No. 6 Stanford, No. 16 Columbia, No. 7 Cornell, and No. 9 Williams all come to visit the Brady Squash Center.
Yale boasts seven players that finished in last seasons top 70, while Amherst has zero. Nevertheless, the match will offer an opportunity for Yale to get some match time for some players that haven't played much yet this year. That list will include freshmen Shihui Mao and Issey Norman-Ross, who are both close to recovering from the maladies that laid them low all throughout the first semester. Sophomore Millie Tomlinson, who plays No. 1 for the team, played in a tournament instead of returning to school with the rest of the team a week ago, and will not be available for the Sunday match.
