With a 5-4 victory over Franklin & Marshall, Drexel takes over the 9th ranking position. The Diplomats drop to 10th.

Dickinson moved into the top 30 for the first time in program history. They shutout Haverford to earn the 29th ranking spot.

As a reminder, the College Squash Association updated its ranking rules for the 2015 – 2016 season. Varsity teams are ranked throughout the season (manually until January 25th when a computer algorithm has enough data to rank teams), while club and emerging club programs will only be ranked the week before Team Championships.

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.
