Bulldogs Lose to Princeton Tigers in Hard-Fought Match

Bulldogs Lose to Princeton Tigers in Hard-Fought Match

PRINCETON, N.J.—The No. 6 Yale women's squash team fought hard against No. 3 Princeton on Sunday, but fell short to the undefeated Tigers with a score of 8-1.

Yale, who just came off a 5-4 upset of No. 5 Penn, now holds an overall record of 6-1 and sits at 2-1 in the Ivy League.

Though the final score may look as though the Bulldogs struggled, Yale was not swept away in the highly competitive match. All but one of the individual matches lasted four or more games, with strength obvious from both sides.

The Bulldogs had little room for mistakes, however, and despite a solid effort faltered against their competitors.

The match against Princeton was a valuable one for the Bulldogs, whose season will only intensify over the coming weeks.

Yale will hit the road for their eighth consecutive away match this coming Wednesday, when they are set to take on No. 2 Trinity in Hartford, Conn.

The Bulldogs will aim to utilize the lessons they learned in their match against Princeton when they see the Bantams in an evening match set to begin at 6:00 p.m.
