The Bantam men face No. 9 George Washington, No. 18 Navy, and No. 5 Drexel on three successive days next week, while the women face No. 15 George Washington and No. 5 Drexel.
The Williams squads jump right into action after the holiday break by hosting the only matches scheduled for the weekend. First, Dartmouth and then NESCAC rival Middlebury visit northwest Massachusetts on back-to-back days.
Stanford’s teams play their only home matches of the season, welcoming Tufts, who make the cross-country trip for a match on Wednesday, the 8th. Additional matches include the Yale women hosting Amherst and Mount Holyoke, MIT traveling to Bowdoin, and George Washington hosting Vassar next Thursday.
