LANCASTER, Pa.—Straight off of a Friday evening win over Drexel University, the Yale men's squash team swept Franklin & Marshall 9-0 on Saturday.
The Bulldogs performed well on the road, securing six of the nine wins in just three games.
The most remarkable match of the afternoon was at the No. 5 spot, where senior captain Thomas Kingshott battled back and forth with his opponent Samm Fulton through five games. After a high-scoring 14-12 opening win for Kingshott, Fulton came back to win the second and third games. Kingshott was able to rally in the final two frames to secure the win for the Bulldogs.
Yale will build upon their successful opening weekend on Dec. 5, when they travel to Providence to take on Brown in their first League match of the season.
