The No. 5 ranked Stanford women’s squash team (3-2) competed yesterday afternoon against the No. 14 George Washington University. Each of the nine matches were won by Stanford in a truly impressive showcase of athleticism.
In front of an energized and packed audience at the Arrillaga Center for Sports & Recreation, No. 5 Stanford women’s squash (3-3) fell 5-4 to No. 6 Yale (8-1) in a thriller that came down to the very last matches and left Stanford head coach Mark Talbott still searching for his first win over his brother, Yale head coach Dave Talbott.
No. 5 Stanford squash will take on the No. 1 Harvard Crimson at home on Jan. 19 at 5 p.m. Harvard enters Thursday’s game as the favorite, having won all four of its last matches against top teams, such as Princeton, a team Stanford fell to earlier this year.
No. 5 women’s squash (3-1) showed that the best is in the West by sweeping No. 13 Franklin & Marshall College (1-5) 8-0 on Tuesday. Notably, all eight Cardinal players beat their opponents cleanly in three games.
