Trinity Men’s Squash Shuts Down Princeton in National Championship Rematch

Trinity Men’s Squash Shuts Down Princeton in National Championship Rematch

Hartford, Conn. - In a rematch of last year's National Championship finalists, the Trinity College Bantams emerged victorious once again, securing a 9-0 shutout of the Princeton University Tigers in men's squash action this evening at Kellner Squash Center in the final match of the regular season for both squads.  Eleven-time defending National Champion Trinity, ranked No. 1 in the nation, improves to 19-0 and extends the longest winning streak in the history of intercollegiate varsity sports to 220 matches.
            Princeton, ranked No. 4 in the nation, falls to 9-3 on the season, and is blanked for the first time since the 2006-07 season, when Trinity defeated Princeton 9-0 in that season's National Championship final.  Princeton has lost just nine matches since the 06-07 season, seven of which have come against Trinity. 
            All but three matches were decided in more than three sets in today's contest.  Trinity sophomore Parth Sharma (Penang, Malaysia), ranked No. 6 in the nation, upset junior David Letourneau (Calgary, Alb.), ranked No. 5 in the nation, 3-1, to give Trinity their clinching fifth point.
            Trinity begins their post-season quest for a twelfth straight title at the College Squash Association (CSA) National Championship Tournament hosted by Yale University, Feb. 19-21.
