M., W. Squash Cruise by Five Opponents

Following up on two 9-0 routs of Brown two weeks ago, the Harvard men's and women's squash teams rolled over their five opponents on Saturday.

The No. 2 Crimson men (4-0, 2-0 Ivy) blanked Cornell, Colby, and Bates each by the count of 9-0.

The No. 3 women (3-0, 2-0) also impressed, handily beating Cornell 7-2 and sweeping Bates 9-0.


The men played near flawless squash despite the grueling three-match schedule on Saturday.

"This weekend we focused on playing solidly, doing what we need do to win and not making mistakes," said junior Shondip Ghosh, who played in the No. 2 spot. "It is important to gear up for each match mentally."

The men breezed by the competition despite playing without All-American captain Tim Wyant, sophomore Peter Karlen and sophomore David Barry. All three were competing in the Hartford Golf Club Open, an individual squash tournament.

"The team really stepped up to the challenge, and filled in for the three," junior No. 1 Grayson Witcher said.

The Crimson women also continued their undefeated season, easily beating Cornell and Bates.
