Dunlop Sports - Official Squash Ball of the CSA Northampton, MA — Today, the eighth Dunlop Men's College Squash Association Team Rankings of the season were released.

There was a shakeup in the top three this week. Trinity defeated Princeton 7-2 and then Princeton beat Yale 8-1.  This created a triangle due to Yale’s victory over Trinity a few weeks ago. By CSA ranking procedure, the individual match victories were totaled to decide the top-three ranking positions: Trinity – 11 individual matches, Princeton – 10 individual matches, and Yale – 6 individual matches.

Navy defeated Western Ontario, 5-4, to move the Midshipmen to 12th in the nation.

The NESCAC tournament helped sort out the ranking conundrum for the 19th to 24th ranking positions.

The following teams were removed from the rankings due to “Not on Roster” players in their match results:  Boston University, Illinois Springfield, Lafayette, Northwestern, and USC. Each of these teams received multiple warnings. They will reenter the rankings in the ranking cycle after they enter the players in the US Squash scoring system for the matches with “Not on Roster” players.

Coaches and Team Contacts, please remember to enter your team’s results in the US Squash Scoring System on the day of each match.
