Bears Drop Matches To Cornell and Yale

Feb. 13, 2007

The Brown men's squash team had a character building road trip this weekend at Yale and Cornell. The Yale squad ranked 4 in the Nation handed the Bears a 9-0 loss, but the Cornell match turned into a classic Ivy League encounter. A big crowd packed the squash courts at Cornell and saw a gripping match turn out in favor of the Big Red, 5-4.

There were wonderful displays by the four winners for Brown led by two freshmen, Adam Greenberg and Alex Heitzmann, who won 3-2 at #3 and #9 respectively. Senior Patrick Haynes left arguably his best squash of the season on the court winning 3-0 at #5, and at #4 North Whipple's short attacking game dragged a 3-1 win out of his opponent. The team as a whole gave a great effort, but came up just short.

Next up for the Bears is the visit by MIT to Brown on Thursday at 6:30pm
