CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- The Yale women's squash team fell to the top-ranked Harvard Crimson in its regular season finale earlier this afternoon. The Bulldogs (11-4, 4-3 Ivy) came up short in their attempt to upset the Crimson, who remain undefeated on the season. The Yale women now have a two-week break to prepare for the CSA Team Championship tournament, which begins Feb. 24.
The Bulldogs were overpowered by the top nine of the Crimson, who won seven of the matches 3-0. Sophomore Emily Sherwood and senior Madeline Tomlinson each won a game for the Bulldogs in the seven and nine spots, respectively, before eventually losing their matches 3-1. Senior Jenny Scherl had another solid performance in the one spot, scoring 24 points against Harvard's highly-ranked Sabrina Sobhy despite losing (11-9,11-8,11-7).
The match today served as good preparation for the CSA Team Championship, where the Bulldogs are projected to enter as the No. 5 seed and will likely have to play a higher-seeded opponent in the quarterfinals.
