This is the first week of computerized ranking. Earlier this week, an article explaining the computerized ranking methodology was published.

As part of the computerized rankings, the College Squash Association will rank varsity and club teams that have played at least five matches utilizing the Elo ranking methodology. If needed, the Ranking Chair may adjust a non-varsity team’s ranking position.

Cornell’s 6-3 victory over Columbia helped move the Big Red into the 7th ranking position.

After having their first losses of the season over the weekend, Tufts fell one position to 19th.

William Smith moved ahead of St. Lawrence after the Herons’ 5-4 victory on Saturday.
