Squash Team Trounces Dartmouth, 9-0

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The squash team overwheimed a mediocre Dartmouth varsity by 9 to 0 Saturday, winning every match but two in consecutive games.

The Victory was the Crimson's fourth of the season and third in Eastern League competition. The team has not yet lost a match.

Playing Bill Meyer at number one, the Crimson's Vic Neiderhoffer had to break a 13 all deadlock in the fourth game to pull out a 3-1 victory. Neiderhoffer won the first two games easily, by 15-11 and 15-12, but lost the third by 11-15. His opponent climbed to a 13-12 lead in the next game, but Neiderhoffer won the next point to tie the score.

Neiderhoffer Wine

Meyer elected to stake the game on two out of three points. Neiderhoffer won the first on a reverse corner from his backhand, and is the rally for the second point drew his opponent out of position with a backhand shot off the left side wall into the right front corner. Meyer was only able to lob the ball back, and Neiderhoffer won the point on the next shot.

Lou Williams, Paul Sullivan, Hampy Howell, Roger Weigand, Doug Walter, clark Grew, and Jay Nelson collected the other Crimson wins. Clark Grew was the other player besides Neiderhoffer whose match went to more than three games.

To Meet Cornell

The team's next match is this Friday, against Cornell in the Hemenway Courts at 3 p.m. Last winter Harvard defeated Cornell 8 to 1, and the year before the score was 9 to 0--Friday's match does not promise to break the pattern. Cornell has lost Pete Moeller, the number one man who reached the quarter-finals of the intercollegiate tournament last winter, and is now using senior Han Steinglass in the top position.

Steinglass was able to win only a tota' of 20 points in three games against the Yale number one man, Ralph Howe, in a match just before Christmas. Yale, playing without its number two and three players won the team match 9 to 0.

But Howe is unquestionably the best college squash player in the country, and a defeat at Howe's hands does not mean Steinglass will not be able to give the Crimson's Neiderhoffer an interesting match this Friday.

Two Cornell sophomores, Jimmy Cohen and Pete Kortman, took their matches to five games against Yale, and will probably play in the middle of the Cornell line-up, instead of near the bottom as against Yale. Ken Norwood, Bill Taylor and Bob Merill will full out the remaining top positions.

Freshmen

Against the Dartmouth freshmen, the Yardling squash team continued its record of not losing a single individual game in intercollegiate competition by defeating an inexperienced Indian squad, 9 to 0. Winners in matches were Bill Morris at the number one slot, AI Terrell, Terry Robinson, Denny Lewis, Mike Cohen, Pug Wiaokur, Denny Lewis, Chum Steele, and Mike Tarre.
