LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College men's squash team recorded an inspiring 5-4 victory over rival Williams College on Saturday morning, then fell 5-4 in a hard-fought battle to the University of Rochester at the Bates Squash Center.

The Bobcats (1-2), ranked No. 12 by the College Squash Association, took the top three positions against the No. 5 Ephs with winning efforts by senior Ricky Weisskopf (San Salvador, El Salvador), senior Sean Wilkinson (London, England) and sophomore Kush Mahan (Gainesville, Fla.). Coming through for Bates at the Nos. 5 and 6 spots were a pair of first-years, Matt Marchisotto (New York, N.Y.) and Will Katz (Bronxville, N.Y.).

No. 14 Rochester turned the tables on Bates, however, winning at the top four spots. Marchisotto and Katz both won points for the Bobcats, as did first-year Nick Echeverria (Washington, D.C.) and junior Deacon Chapin (Cambridge, Mass.) at positions 7 and 9, respectively.

Bates next plays at Yale University this weekend, beginning with a match against Cornell on Jan. 18 at 5 p.m.
