The Penn Squash Center was packed on Sunday afternoon for the highly anticipated showdown between the No. 2 Penn and No. 4 Harvard men. The last 2 times these teams met resulted in lengthy 5-4 matches in which Penn fell short. This year, in the CSA Men’s Match of the Week, Penn came out on top with a confident 7-2 win. The win marks Penn’s 11th undefeated match.
Head Coach, Gilly Lane shares “It was a positive step for the team. Harvard is a great team and incredibly well coached and knows how to come through big matches. I thought our boys played the big points well and managed their emotions in those moments”.
While Penn is riding on this victory, Gilly is prepared for Harvard to come back stronger “and I have no doubt that they will be determined to reverse the weekend’s results”. The team will use this win as motivation heading into the rest of the season where we will see them take on Yale, Trinity and Princeton.
