Brown Beats Middlebury, Falls To Stanford
The 10th ranked Brown women's squash team split this weekend, losing 9-0 to Stanford and winning a thrilling match against Middlebury, 5-4, in competition at the Yale Round Robin in New Haven, Connecticut.
While the Stanford squad was strong and deep - but the match against Middlebury was a classic.
The most exciting match was at #6 where sophomore Lydia Smith won in five games with a nail-biting 11-9 win in the fifth, after showing great determination and athleticism to come back from an 11-1 first game setback to capture an important match.
Brown needed one more to seal the win - and senior co-captain Carolyn Tilney at #4 lost the first game - but won the remaining 3 games, playing her very best squash to take the fifth and winning match.
Next up for the Bears is third-ranked Trinity at home on February 1st, starting at 5:00 p.m.
