No. 14 George Washington was no challenge for the women's squash team, marking the win with a one-sided 8-1 final score. First-year Nessrine Ariffin (Penang, Malaysia) improves to an astonishing 14-1 on the season with an easy 3-0 win over Colonial's sophomore
Jackie Shea in the No. 1 spot. Rounding out the remainder of the 3-0 defeats were first-years Myriam Kelly (Bronx, N.Y.), Chloe Mitchell (Chatham, N.J.), and Lesea Bourke (Grennwich, Conn.), sophomores Ashley Brooks (Roslindale, Mass.), Samantha Matos (New York, N.Y.), and Rakey Drammeh (New York, N.Y.), and juniors Cheri-Ann Parris (St. Philip, Barbados) and Alison Bragg (Darien, Conn.).

In the women's second, and final match of the day, Bates faced No. 35 Drexel. Once again the Bobcats swept the scoreboard, completing nine perfect 3-0 games in the win. Bates outscored Drexel 297-66 in the uncontested victory. The win was highlighted by Bragg and Bourke who each allowed only one total Drexel point against in each of their respective 3-0 wins.
