No. 6 Yale Upsets No. 5 Penn; Stays Undefeated

No. 6 Yale Upsets No. 5 Penn; Stays Undefeated

PHILADELPHIA—The No. 6 Yale women's squash team maintained its undefeated streak this Saturday with a 5-4 win against No. 5 Penn. The upset marks the first win the program has had against the Quakers since 2011.

The Bulldogs' depth showed throughout the grueling match. Although Yale gave up games in the top three positions, the team's overall skill showed with wins in the lower half of its roster.  

Notable matches came from the No. 9 and No. 7 spots, where senior captain Jen Davis and First Year Riya Mital both came up triumphant through four games.

The Yale women will hope to carry their positive momentum into Sunday's competition, where they are set to take on No. 3 Princeton in their seventh consecutive away match. The match will begin at 12:00 p.m.
