The No. 13 men’s and No. 10 women’s squash teams both opened the week by hosting Yale’s No. 2 men’s and No. 5 women’s teams.

In the women’s matches, the Bulldogs beat the Bears, 8-1. Sophie Scherl ’11 had the Bears’ lone victory, after her opponent was forced to withdraw due to an injury. Sarah Roberts ’10, Sarah Beresford ’13 and Laura Pyne ’10 each took one game from their opponents but eventually lost their best-of-five-game matches.

The men’s team also fell to Yale, 6-3. Tucker Bryan ’12, Alex Heitzmann ’10 and Chris Holter ’13 all had big individual wins.

On Tuesday, the Bears traveled to Boston, and the men took on MIT while the women faced No. 19 Tufts. Both squads returned home triumphant with 9-0 victories.

The next home match for the Bears is Saturday when the men take on No. 9 Dartmouth and the women play No. 6 Dartmouth.
