The Cornell women’s squash team wrapped up its season this weekend after competing in the Women’s National Team Championship, otherwise known as the Howe Cup. The tournament took place at Princeton’s Jadwin Gymnasium, where the Red finished 9-7 on the season, maintaining its sixth place spot in the nationalrankings for the third season running.

Cornell took on No. 3 Penn on Friday afternoon and, having narrowly lost to them, 6-3, in the regular season, hoped to pull off an upset. However, the Red failed to avenge its loss as it fell to the Quakers, 8-1. Senior Jessenia Pacheco gave Cornell its sole point, defeating Yan Xin Tan to put the Red on the board.
