AMHERST, Mass. -- The Yale women's squash team continued its undefeated regular season by winning both matches in today's doubleheader against Mt. Holyoke and Amherst.

In the first matchup of the day against the Mt. Holyoke Lyons, the Bulldogs started strong and never slowed down on their way to winning all 27 games in a 9-0 match sweep. Following the early matches, Yale then continued its momentum against Amherst on its way to another 9-0 win.

Coach Dave Talbott was impressed by his team's ability to stay focused despite the early turnaround after Saturday's win over Wesleyan. Talbott said he has been proud of the leadership shown by seniors Jenny Scherl and Shiyuan Mao in the team's performances up to this point in the season.

"Today served as good preparation for our Ivy League matchups this weekend," said Captain Shiyuan Mao. "The team is happy with the way we've performed so far, and we hope to continue to improve our play with every match moving forward."

The Bulldogs are now 5-0 on the season heading into major Ivy League matches against Cornell and Columbia. The team will play Cornell in Ithaca on Saturday then travel to New York City to play Columbia on Sunday.
