By Carol Matsuzaki

The MIT JV Squash Team traveled to Milton Academy for its last away match of the season on Monday. Although Milton is a powerhouse in squash and is undefeated, MIT gave them a few good battles.

James Habyarimana '98 played some great squash in a most grueling match, but lost 1716 in the fourth. Robbie Chhabra '99 also lost 31 in a close match. Jon Goldman '98 totally dominated and never let his opponent in the match, as he took a 31 win.

Carol Matsuzaki '96 squandered leads of 20 in games and 1410 in the fifth, but had just enough to pull out a 1715 victory on a nick on the last point of the match. Torkel Engeness '97 lost 30 in three close games, as the last one went to 1714.

Jacob Marcus '99 and his opponent seesawed back and forth, but unfortunately, his opponent raised his level of play in the fifth game (1510) to take the match, 32. Bryan Robinson '98 ran into a tough opponent and lost 30, making the final dual match score 52.

The team's last match is on Feb. 20 at 4 p.m. against Tufts University at the Alumni Pool Squash Courts.
