CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the fifth-straight season, Harvard women's squash (13-0, 6-0 Ivy) finds itself at the top of the Ivy League, and just one win away from its fifth-consecutive outright league championship. The Crimson will look to clinch the title in its last regular season match at Cornell (5-9, 1-5 Ivy) in Ithaca, New York on Saturday.

The Crimson comes into the match as winners of its past 79 matches, 25 of which have come on the road. Harvard also owns a 26-match winning streak against the Big Red, with the past six coming by way of a shutout.
