Men's squash dominates Amherst in an 8-1 win

AMHERST, Mass. -- The No. 19 nationally ranked Bates men's squash team posted an 8-1 win at NESCAC opponent No. 22 Amherst on Saturday afternoon.

Junior David Born (Westbrook, Maine) nearly defeated Amherst's Rodrigo Miranda in a marathon five-game match (11-8, 8-11, 6-11, 11-7, 9-11), Bates' only loss on the day. Senior captain Bobby Burns (Greenwich, Conn.) set the pace in the No. 1 spot for the Bobcats' success defeating David Kerr in four games (11-5, 11-6, 4-11, 11-7). No. 2 sophomore Kristian Muldoon (Paget, Bermuda) and No. 6 junior Walter Cabot (Dover, Mass.) both completed 3-0 sweeps to propel Bates to victory.

Juniors R.J. Keating (Short Hills, N.J.) and Eric Bedell (Brooklyn, N.Y.) combined with first-years Andy Cannon (Greenwich, Conn.), Jason Shrubb (Hamilton, Bermuda), and Nabil Saleem (Alpharetta, Ga.) to underscore Bates' command, taking each of their games to four sets.

Bates travels with the women's team to No. 7 Dartmouth tomorrow, Jan. 15 at 3pm.
