Shorthanded Squash Team Suffers 9-0 Loss

By Daniel Wang

Last Thursday, the squash team suffered a 90 loss to Amherst College at the DuPont Athletic Center.

The team had only five varsity members present and had to bring up players from the junior varsity squad to fill the remaining positions. Despite a valiant effort, the Engineers lost each of the matches against the nation's fourth-ranked team in straight games.

The best showing came at first singles, where Andrew Downer '96 went down, 1510, 1513, 157. In terms of total points won, the next best result came from Mike Chatwin '97, at ninth singles, 159, 158, 1511.

The meet was the first of 1995 for the team, whose record is now 15. The next contest will take place this afternoon at home against Yale University.
