Men split, women get swept in squash over weekend

The men’s squash team concluded its home season with a close 5-4 win over No. 12 Penn on Friday. Senior Tony Zou came through with the match clincher as sophomores Ramit Tandon, Mohamad AbdelMaksoud, Daniel Saleem, and Kyul Rhee all won their matches for the team’s ultimate victory. Seniors Graham Miao and Alex Park, as well as Zou, were honored for their dedication to Light Blue squash before their final home match. On Sunday, the Lions concluded their season against No. 1 Princeton, who swept the Light Blue 9-0.

The men now look ahead to the CSA Team Nationals, which will be held from Feb. 22-24.

On the women’s side, the Lions were swept 9-0 by Penn in their final home contest of the season on Friday. Senior Katie Quan, who was honored in a pregame ceremony, was the only player to win a set. The next day, the Lions were swept again, this time by No. 1 Princeton. The women look forward to the 2013 CSA Team Nationals from Feb. 15-17 as they wrap up their season.
