Trinity Men and Women TakeDown Harvard with a Dual Match Sweep in CSA Match of the Week

The CSA Match of the Week did not disappoint. The Trinity men and women both upset Harvard 6-3 marking the first dual match sweep since 2008. 

These wins were carried with extra passion after Trinity’s valiant effort last season where they came up just short to Harvard in the Potter Cup and Howe Cup finals.

The men’s match saw several matches lasting over an hour, including three five-game battles. The 6-3 victory marked the first win over Harvard since 2018 and it was certainly not an easy feat. “At 4-1 up, Harvard showed great resilience and made it hard for us to clinch the 5th point. All credit to their team and coaches” Men’s Head Coach Moustafa Hamada comments. Hamada is “proud of the team for pulling through this time” and looks to “build on this win and keep getting stronger”. 

Simultaneously, the Trinity women fought through Harvard’s top nine with two lengthy 5-game matches. The women started off strong sweeping the first round of matches. The momentum did not stop there. With fans surrounding the courts, Trinity secured the 6-3 win. “The team played well, but this is still the beginning of the second half of the season. Our team needs to keep getting stronger and stronger to compete against some tough opponents in our upcoming matches” Women’s Head Coach Wendy Bartlett reflects. 

The teams are just gearing up for a heavy month of matches before the championships. While this win demonstrates their strength, they still have to face Cornell, Columbia, Princeton, Penn, Yale and Drexel. While Trinity men and women remain undefeated, anything is fair game in these high profile matches.
