The Cornell men’s and women’s squash teams saw contrasting results this past weekend as their regular seasons came to an end.

The men’s side completed a clean sweep of the competition over the three-day weekend, including an 8-1 defeat against Penn. In addition, the Red also triumphed over No. 28 Hobart, 9-0, and No. 9 Princeton, 6-3, to end the regular season 9-5 overall and 5-2 in the Ivy conference. Cornell also moved up a spot in the rankings to No. 7, largely due to the squad’s impressive four-game winning streak.

Head coach Mark Devoy was pleased with the Red’s recent successful run, stating that he believed that the team had really come together to take on the challenge head-on.
