NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Saturday, the No. 2 Bulldogs knocked off No. 7 Cornell in convincing fashion, winning 9-0 at the Brady Squash Center. 

Yale played sophomores Millie Tomlinson and Kim Hay at Nos. 1 and 2, and the Nos. 1 and 15 players in the country stayed undefeated.

At Nos. 3 and 4 Yale played senior captain Rhetta Nadas and fellow senior Alexandra van Arkel, who both continued their excellent senior seasons.

At No. 5 was junior Katie Ballaine, followed by sophomores Gwen Tilghman and Lilly Fast at Nos. 6 and 7, respectively. 

Finally, freshman Issey Norman-Ross played at No. 8 and fellow freshman Shihui Mao played at No. 9.

As a team, Yale is yet to drop a single match. Sunday, they will look to continue their streak against Columbia and Williams.
