MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Saturday’s winter weather in New England didn’t stop the No. 10 Dartmouth men’s squash team from traveling to Middlebury, Vermont following the team’s matchup in Williamstown, Massachusetts, to take on No. 19 Middlebury
The Big Green defeated the Panthers 9-0 and moved to a 5-1 record for the season, while Middlebury evens out at 1-1.
Facing a large crowd cheering on the home team, Dartmouth started with a solid first round, winning every match. Freshmen Toby Harding and Reg Anderson won their respective matches 3-0. Sophomore Sean Oen dropped the second game, but sealed the deal in four. In the second round, senior Jack Harvey, junior Carson Spahr and sophomore Sam Epley took down their opponents in three games.
The third round culminated a dominating day for the Big Green, with seniors Alvin Huemann and Brian Giegerich, and junior Matthew Giegerich, all sweeping their opponents 3-0.
This weekend Dartmouth will travel to San Francisco for its annual training trip, before taking almost a month off for the holidays, returning to action on January 13, to open conference play against Columbia.
