Weekend Wrap

We all know you've had ample basketball coverage this weekend, but you can only read so much about Penn's 20-point loss to St. Joseph’s. So what about the rest of the Red and Blue? For recaps of Penn's other squads, look no further than this week's edition of Weekend Wrap.

Women’s squash

Led by the efforts of freshmen Haidi Lala and Camille Lanier, the No. 5 Quakers narrowly defeated No. 4 Trinity, 6-3. With only one loss so far this season, the Red and Blue are looking to win a national championship, but first will have to prove themselves against the first-ranked Princeton Tigers on Jan. 30.

Men’s squash

There wasn’t much to hope for Penn men’s squash team entering their contest against No. 2 Trinity, and that was confirmed as the Bantams blanketed the Quakers, 9-0. Notable, though, was No.1 Danny Greenberg’s 11-7 win in his third game against Reinhold Hergeth, and Daniel Judd’s two wins at No. 9 against Juan Lopez.

Plagued by some key absences, both the men’s and women’s teams failed to score a victory during their weekend trip to New England. The men (2-5, 1-5 Ivy) fell to Brown (4-3, 1-3) while the women (3-5, 2-5) were defeated by both the Bears (5-2, 2-2) and the Crimson (7-0, 5-0). Interestingly, the men’s meet took place at Brown’s brand new aquatic facility, where the Ivy League Championship will take place in March.

In their first doubleheader of the season, the Quakers easily defeated Lehigh and St. Joseph’s, shutting out both teams, 7-0. While the Red and Blue will only be back in action on Feb. 9 against Rutgers, they will be able to carry the momentum from their convincing start to the year.
