CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Harvard men's squash team will look to build on its success from a year ago into the 2009-10 season. The Crimson concluded 2008-09 with a fourth place finish at the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Championships and carried an overall record of 7-6.
The 2009-10 season begins with three away matches at Brown (Nov. 20), Williams (Nov. 22) and Dartmouth (Dec. 5). The Crimson will host Cornell on Dec. 5 for its first home match of the year. The team will take a break from competition until Jan. 30 when they will travel to Hartford, Conn. to take on Trinity, the defending national champion. The Crimson will host Penn on Feb. 6 and Princeton, the national runner-up, on Feb. 7. Harvard's final regular season match will be at Yale on Feb. 13.
The Crimson will look for the program's 32nd national team championship when it competes at the CSA Team Championships at Yale Feb. 19-21. Harvard wraps up the season at the CSA Individual Championships at Trinity Mar. 5-7.
Senios Colin West and Franklin Cohen will serve as captains of the Crimson for the 2009-10 season.
Last year, West was once again a CSA All-American and All-Ivy
League selection as he earned first-team honors for both in
2008-09. West will now look to earn his third CSA All-America and
fourth All-Ivy League nods. West would be the 12th player in
Harvard squash history to be selected All-Ivy League four times.
