Princeton, NJ — The finals of the Potter Cup (A Division) of the Men’s College Squash Association National Team Championships featured the top two teams in the nation: Trinity and Princeton. The second-seeded Tigers wanted to end Trinity’s 13 years as national champions.
Down 3-4 with two matches to play, the team match and national championship came down to the matches at the #1 and #4 positions. At the #1 position, Todd Harrity (Princeton) faced Vikram Malhotra (Trinity). These two players were each semifinalists in the 2011 and 2012 Pool Trophy (A draw of the Individual Championships), and Harrity won the Pool Trophy in 2011. During the regular season, Malhotra defeated Harrity in a five-game match (9-11, 11-7, 4-11, 11-4, and 11-9).
The rematch at team championships lived up to expectations — a great match from two of the best players in college squash. Harrity prevailed in 3 games (11-6, 11-8, and 11-6).
Below is video of the match.
Princeton went on to win the remaining match and capture the 2012 Potter Cup and national championship.
