The men’s squash team struggled in their first competition of the season, losing 9-0 to a dominant Harvard squad. The Crimson did not lose a game in the nine matches, though several Bears kept the matches close. At No. 6, Brad Thompson ’12 continued to battle after a 9-1 first-game loss and remained competitive, losing the next two games, 10-8 and 9-6. Alex Heitzmann ’10 also turned in a solid effort at No. 9, but came up short, falling, 9-4, 9-7, 9-3.

The women’s squash team had a similar result, failing to win a game in a 9-0 loss to Harvard. Charlotte Steel ’09, playing at No. 1, put up the strongest fight, in a 9-1, 9-4, 9-5 loss.

Both squads will resume competition this weekend, with home matches against Princeton on Saturday and Penn on Sunday.
