As the men gear up for the college men’s team nationals this weekend, the women’s team rankings are taking shape over the final regular season weekend before women’s team nationals next weekend at Princeton University.

The Howe Cup (A division) three seed will be determined in this weekend’s only top ten match up—between No. 3 Princeton and No. 4 Trinity.

The Bantams will host the Tigers as they enter the match up even on rankings points, with Saturday’s result set to determine who will enter nationals as the three and four seeds.

No. 1 Harvard and No. 2 University of Pennsylvania are all but set to occupy the top two seeds next weekend with Harvard completing an undefeated season, and UPenn suffering their only loss to Harvard.

The remaining top eight teams are set with no remaining regular season matches to be played this weekend. Rounding out the Howe Cup division, Yale enters as the five seed, Stanford the six seed, Cornell the seven seed and Columbia the eight seed.

Further down the rankings, No. 29 Connecticut College and No. 30 Mount Holyoke College will face off this weekend with the No. 29 ranking potentially on the line.

Like the men’s team championships this weekend, the women’s team championships will be streaming live and free on SquashTV from Princeton’s show court.

Live scores for all team championship matches are avilable on www.clublocker.com.
