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

The order of the teams ranked 7th through 17th was changed up this week. Princeton’s victory over Franklin and Marshall and Navy’s victory over Princeton moved the Midshipmen to 10th, the Tigers to 11th, and the Diplomats to 12th. Also, George Washington’s victory over Western Ontario leapfrogged the Colonials ahead of the Mustangs.

Tufts’ victory over MIT moved the Jumbos to 32nd.

Teams ranked 36th – 47th also saw changes. NYU’s victory over Haverford, and Northwestern’s and Chicago’s victories over Washington in St. Louis were the catalysts for these changes.

Teams are reminded that to qualify for the National Team Championships, they must meet minimum match requirements:

  • Varsity teams are required to play ten (10) matches against other CSA teams to enter team championships. At minimum, each team should have at least 6 different opponents. Varsity teams should play the majority of their matches against other varsity schools.
  • Club teams are required to play eight (8) matches against other CSA teams to enter team championships in a 9 player division. In addition, club teams must play at least four (4) matches between January 1st and February 10th. At minimum, each team should have at least five (5) different opponents.

For a regular season match to officially count for ranking purposes, each team must have at least seven players. Except for Emerging Teams, matches with less than seven players per team will not count towards the required number of matches for entry into the National Team Championships.
