Jeffs Blanked at Yale

February 8, 2006

NEW HAVEN, CT - The No. 11 Amherst men's squash team was shutout at third-ranked Yale University on Wednesday night, while on the women’s side 16th-ranked Amherst was blanked by the top-ranked Bulldogs. The Amherst men’s squad fell to 6-8, while the women dropped to 6-10.

On the men’s side, only four Jeffs were able to steal game victories as sophomore Mark Rapisarda (Brooklyn, NY), junior tri-captain Auloke Mathur (Mumbai, India) and fellow juniors Stu Landesburg (Katonah, NY) and Craig McCready (London, England) were able to prevent shutouts, but still fell by matching scores of 3-1.

Meanwhile, no one on the Amherst women’s squad could pilfer a game as Yale posted 3-0 victories across the board.

Both squads return to action this weekend at the NESCAC Championships, hosted by Trinity College.
