NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The No. 9 nationally ranked Bates women's squash team had a productive weekend in a round robin tournament at Yale University. The Bobcats were edged by nemesis No. 10 Cornell 5-4 before getting the better of Mount Holyoke and Middlebury on Saturday, by scores of 6-3 and 7-2 respectively.


Bates and Cornell have been trading the Nos. 9 and 10 spots in the College Squash Association rankings for the better part of three years, and Saturday's match showed that little has changed since last season. The match was tied at 4-4, with the No. 4 slot still undecided between Bates' Charlotte Gerrish (Rye, N.Y.) and Cornell's Mairn Barnes. Gerrish battled her talented Cornell opponent to 2-2 and forcing a fifth and final game.  With the point total at 7-7 in the 5th, Cornell's Mairn Barnes pulled away for a 3-9, 9-1, 8-10, 9-5, 9-6 win, giving Cornell the 5-4 victory.

"We feel very good about the strength of our team, as the Cornell women's team has added players and improved over last season," said Bates coach John Illig. "Our decisive wins over strong teams from Mt. Holyoke and Middlebury were a good way to end the weekend."

Bates (8-4) will host Northeastern University on Friday at 7 p.m.
