The College Squash Association (CSA) has published its second rankings update of the season as the teams look ahead to the completion of the Fall section of their schedules.

Despite the flurry of action over the past couple of weeks, the results fell largely in line with the previous set of rankings. Overall, there were only a few minor shifts in the middle sections of the rankings.

The Amherst women’s win over Stanford mean the Mammoths jump the Cardinal up to 10th, with Stanford, Dartmouth, and Williams all dropping a spot. All of those teams play each other over the course of the season, which should produce more exciting results.

The only varsity movement in the men’s list is Dickinson’s jump over Bates to No. 24 following their very close 5-4 contest. We expect many more close matches in this section of the rankings throughout the rest of the season.

Both Brown teams, in their first year as club programs, join the rankings this week after away wins over Bowdoin. Brown, having just transitioned to club status this season, has received a one-year exemption to participate in the varsity team championships this year and will appear in the varsity rankings from this point forward.

Other club teams who performed well and appeared near the top of the club team rankings for the first time were the Washington University in St. Louis women and the Bucknell University men.
