As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. The Harvard women’s squash team sent five players to Stamford, Conn., over the weekend to compete in the CSA Individual Championships this pas weekend. The team, which had had a dominant, undefeated season, came away with neither the Ramsay Cup nor the Holleran Cup.
Not only did the Crimson finish the season as the only team in the nation to boast an undefeated record, it also brought home the Howe Cup for the second consecutive season after triumphs over three of the nation’s top programs.
With wins over Brown and No. 4 Yale this weekend, the Crimson (10-0, 7-0 Ivy League) closed out a perfect regular season with its 20th Ivy League title in program history.
The No. 1 Harvard women’s squash team (6-0, 3-0 Ivy League) downed No. 5 Trinity (7-3, 0-0 NESCAC) 7-2 in its first away game of 2016 at the Kellner Squash Center in Hartford, C.T.
The Crimson women swept its opponent Monday afternoon, while the men fell by one set.
Another day, another top three opponent humbled. Just 24 hours after defeating No. 2 Penn, the No. 1 Harvard women’s squash team cruised past No. 3 Princeton, 9-0, at the Murr Center Squash Courts on Sunday.
The No. 5 Harvard men’s squash team and No. 1 women’s team started off 2016 with Ivy League play against No. 1 and No. 2 Penn, respectively. The teams returned to the Murr Center after a couple of weeks of rest on Saturday, and both came out strong against their Ivy League rival, picking up identical 6-3 wins.
The Harvard women's squash team continued to demonstrate its dominance, sweeping the Big Green, 9-0.
