Cambridge, MA — At the 2011 Men’s College Squash Association National Team Championships, Rochester and Cornell played in the opening round of the Potter Cup (“A” Division).

Cornell, the fifth seed, and Rochester, the fourth seed, lived up to the anticipated excitement, especially the matches at the top of the ladder. Cornell’s number 1, Nick Sachvie, faced Rochester’s Benjamin Fischer. In the regular season, Sachvie defeated Fischer in three games; however, during the team championships, the two players played an epic five-game match. Fischer and Sachvie traded the first two games, both 11-9.  Fischer had a dominant third game, winning 11-5, but Sachvie’s resolve proved too strong. He won in tie-breakers in the fourth and went on to win the match in the fifth (9-11,   11-9, 5-11, 13-11, and 11-6).

Rochester captured the team match 7-2.
