Williamstown, MA — Williams opens the season with a busy first weekend of play. The Ephs will take on Stanford, Harvard, Hamilton, and Cornell at home. They will play two more matches at home in early December before heading down to Princeton for their first road match of the season.

Williams has lost two players to graduation, Will Gruner and Jeremy Hermann, who played number 2 and number 3, respectively. Incoming Exeter grad Kevin Chen is expected to play in the top 3, and Chris Wilkinson, Nick Greaves-Tunnel, Conor McClintock, and Kai Addington will be competing for spots in the bottom 3.
