The first full weekend of College Squash Association (CSA) match play following the students’ return from winter break kicked off Wednesday evening with an exciting match between unbeaten teams as No. 3 Yale University visited No. 6 Franklin & Marshall. Yale were able to hold off F&M 6-3, but the Bulldogs needed to pull out four five-game matches in order to do so.

Among other Men’s action, No. 10 Dartmouth College look to hold their position against visiting No. 13 University of Pennsylvania, while No. 18 Williams College heads north to take on No. 12 Bates College and No. 21 Bowdoin College.

No. 24 Colby College hosts No. 20 Bowdoin College on Friday to kick off the weekend with their Maine rivalry. Later in the weekend, No. 17 Middlebury College visits a Mount Holyoke College side targeting a spot in the top 20 with a home win.
