Women's Squash Posts Eighth Shutout, Beats Cornell, 9-0

Amanda Sobhy improved to 4-0 on the year with her win Sunday (Gil Talbot). 

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The second-ranked Harvard women's squash team posted its fourth consecutive shutout and eighth of the season as it blanked No. 6 Cornell, 9-0, Sunday afternoon inside the Murr Center.

The Big Red tested the Crimson at times, but Harvard was able to rise to the occasion, sweeping seven of the nine matches to improve to 9-1 on the year.

Defending College Squash Association Individual National Champion Amanda Sobhy was challenged in her match; however, she outlasted Danielle Letourneau, 12-10, 11-9, 12-10, on the glass court to go to 4-0 for the Crimson.  

Like Sobhy, No. 3 Haley Mendez was tested, but she was able to hold off Jaime Laird, 11-6, 12-10, 7-11, 11-4, to help the Crimson build momentum in the first set of matches.

No. 9 Isabelle Dowling aided to the Crimson's dominant run, rallying to win the last three games after dropping the first one in a 9-11, 11-6, 11-9, 11-2 win over Olivia Wherry.

Natasha Kingshott remained undefeated, earning her team-best ninth win of the season in the process, by sweeping Brynn Daniels, 11-6, 11-7, 11-8, while No. 2 Laura Gemmell also stayed undefeated by knocking off Jesse Pacheco, 11-7, 13-11, 11-8.

Harvard returns to action Wednesday evening against Trinity at 6 p.m.
