No. 11 Middlebury edges No. 17 men's squash, 6-3

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- No. 11 Middlebury notched a 6-3 win over the No. 17 nationally ranked Bates men's squash team on Saturday at MIT, in the Bobcats' penultimate regular-season match of the season.

Bates, which fell to Middlebury by the same score last Sunday in the Third-Place Match of the NESCAC Championship, received its points at the No. 6 position by junior Walter Cabot (Dover, Mass.), at No. 8 by first-year Nabil Saleem (Atlanta, Ga.) and by first-year Jason Shrubb (Hamilton, Bermuda) at No. 9.

Bates (11-14) plays at Colby on Sunday, then awaits its opening-round opponent at the College Squash Association Men's Team Nationals, which start on Thursday at Princeton.
