Men's squash falls to Penn at nationals; Middlebury up next

PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Bates men's squash team will face Middlebury for the third time in two weeks on Saturday, after both squads dropped their opening-round matches in Hoehn Cup (B Division) play at the College Squash Association Men's Team Nationals.

Bates, the eighth seed in the Hoehn Cup field, fell to the top-seeded, and ninth nationally ranked, Quakers by an 8-1 score, with junior Walter Cabot (Dover, Mass.) scoring the Bobcats' lone points with a 3-1 (10-12, 11-6, 11-9, 11-8) decision over John Dudzik. Fourth-seeded St. Lawrence edged fifth-seed Middlebury 5-4 in their quarterfinal match on Friday.

Middlebury defeated Bates 6-3 on Feb. 5 in the third-place match of the NESCAC Championships. The teams squared off again on Feb. 11 at MIT, with the Panthers again prevailing 6-3. The Panthers and Bobcats will square off once again at Princeton on Saturday at 9am.
