The Bates College Men’s Squash team returns a deep squad in 2018-2019, with nine of their top ten players from last year’s starting lineup set to play this season. While the program loses All-NESCAC selection Anirudh Nambiar to graduation, the top of the order is experienced and ready to compete for a top-16 spot in the rankings. Pat Cosquer’s team will also aim to reach the NESCAC Championship finals again, but they will be battling formidable foes Trinity, Middlebury, and Williams to get there. Bates will also look to avenge their upset loss to Franklin & Marshall at the CSA Championships with a regular season match this year.
