M. Squash Fails to Halt Trinity’s Streak

History was not to be made this past weekend, as the men’s squash team fell to No. 1-ranked Trinity, 0-9, on Saturday afternoon at the Belkin International Squash Courts. The Bantams extended their win streak to 198 consecutive matches –– the nation’s longest active winning streak in any intercollegiate varsity sport. The Red was, however, able to close out its regular season on a high note, shutting out both Brown and Hobart, 9-0. Cornell stands at 12-3 on the season, with a 4-2 record in the Ivy League.

Red Squash to Face Streaking Opponents

This weekend, the men’s and women’s squash teams will aim to duplicate the dominant showing they had at the Cornell Invitational two weeks ago. The men (10-2, 3-2 Ivy) kick things off at 3 p.m. on Saturday against No. 1 ranked Trinity, which is looking to preserve its 194-match win streak –– the nation’s longest active winning streak in any intercollegiate varsity sport.

M. Squash Topples Harvard for First Time in 47 Years

Both the men’s and women’s squash teams took to the court against Ivy League foes this weekend in a tournament formally known as the Ivy Scrimmages. Both teams came out of the weekend with strong showings as they prepare for the upcoming regular season.
The men’s team, with a starting lineup dominated by freshman and sophomores made history beating Harvard for the first time in 47 years.
“For the first time ever they beat Harvard,” said men’s head coach Mark DeVoy. “First time in 47 years. That’s a pretty big deal…no one has ever put Harvard in the back drawer of a tournament before and we just did it.”
Though it was just a scrimmage, it was apparent that DeVoy couldn’t have been more impressed by the way his team competed.
