LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College men's squash team finished off the regular season by sweeping Colby 9-0 on Senior Day Saturday at the Bates Squash Center, less than 24 hours after rolling over Bowdoin 7-2 in Brunswick on Friday night.

The Bobcats, ranked No. 15 in the country, stand at 17-9 heading into the College Squash Association Team Nationals, Feb. 25-27 at Harvard.

In a deceptively close match against the visiting, 21st-ranked Mules (13-12), Bates prevailed 3-2 at the top two positions on the ladder, manned by seniors Will Katz (Bronxville, N.Y.) at No. 1 (over Harry Smith) and Nick Echeverria (Washington, D.C.) at No. 2 (over William Sullivan).

Senior Dae Ro Lee (Yongin, South Korea) also fought out a 3-2 decision over Trey Simpson at No. 6. Earning 3-0 wins were junior Bobby Burns (Greenwich, Conn.) at No. 3, senior Patrick Williams (Boston, Mass.) at No. 4, senior Doug Compton (West Hartford, Conn.) at No. 7 and senior Matt Marchisotto (New York, N.Y.) at No. 9.

In Friday evening's match at No. 19 Bowdoin (9-11), Katz, first-year Kristian Muldoon (Paget, Bermuda), Burns and Compton all swept their opponents 3-0. Sophomore R.J. Keating (Short Hills, N.J.), Lee and sophomore Walter Cabot (Dover, Mass.) also defeated their opponents.

Over their four years playing for Bates, Compton, Echeverria, Katz, Lee, Marchisotto and Williams have combined for 191 wins and only 118 losses.
