The men's squash team ended its season as a team this past weekend at the College Squash Association Nationals at Yale University. The Bears started the tournament off falling to Williams 9-0, in a repeat of a match earlier in the season.
The team then bounced back to defeat the Brown University Brown Bears 6-3, avenging a disappointing 5-4 early-season defeat. The Polar Bears then suffered a final setback falling 6-3 to the Naval Academy to round out tournament play.
The Polar Bears improved their division standing, finishing the tournament No. 14 going 1-2 in the Hoehn "B" division. The team entered nationally ranked at No. 15 and improved its overall record to 13-11. The Trinity Bantams took the national title defeating Yale University in the final match, taking their 12th straight National Men's title.
Senior David Funk led the way for Polar Bears picking up two wins in the No. 2 position against both Brown and the Naval Academy. Senior Thai Ha-Ngoc also picked up a pair of wins in the No. 9 spot.
The members of the team look forward to competing again in the College Squash Association Individual Nationals Tournament at Trinity College over the weekend of March 5.
The women's squash team has been preparing all week to compete in the College Squash Association's Women's National Tournament this Friday at Yale University. The No. 23 ranked Lady Polar Bears closed out their regular season 6-11 with a 7-2 loss to Colby on February 13.
