The No. 5 Harvard men's squash team will take to the road for the first time in 2010-11 this weekend. The Crimson will visit No. 6 Cornell on Saturday and No. 4 Rochester welcomes Harvard on Sunday.
Last Time Out
Harvard dropped two individual matches for the first time this season but recovered to down Dartmouth, 7-2. The win moved the Crimson to 3-0 overal and 2-0 in the Ivy League.
The Crimson have relied on some young talent in its early season dominance. Four freshmen currently play significant roles in Harvard's top nine, and each is still undefeated.
Cornell will host its first home match of the season on Saturday when the Crimson visit Ithaca, N.Y. The Big Red captured 5-4 wins over Franklin and Marshall, as well as Penn, before Princeton dropped them, 6-3.
The Yellowjackets are currently 4-0 this season. After defeating Western Ontario 8-1 to open the season, Rochester has added wins over St. Lawrence, Hobart and Vassar.
Last Season's Meetings
Harvard beat Cornell a year ago Sunday, 6-3, at the Barnaby Courts. Rochester handed the Crimson its first loss last season, 7-2.
Harvard will be off until Jan. 26 when it welcomes Trinty to the Barnaby Courts.
