Men's squash picks up 1st win of season
HAVERFORD, Pa. – The first win of the season for Haverford College's 32nd-ranked men's squash team came easily Saturday afternoon on their home courts as the Fords rolled to a 9-0 win over visiting Vassar College to earn a split on the day after falling, 6-3, to No. 43 Lehigh University in the morning.
Bret Marlowe picked up a pair of wins at the No. 6 slot for Haverford by downing Vassar's Juan Pablo Fernandez by a 3-0 count in the afternoon, following up on his 3-1 victory over Tyler Sloan of Lehigh to start off the day.
The Fords were so dominant against No. 58 Vassar that in the nine matches played, Haverford lost a total of one game winning eight of the nine by 3-0 scores.
Rohn's victory in the Lehigh match was a stirring reversal of fortunes as he fell behind George Jiruska with losses in the opening games, but rallied with 11-2, 11-7 and 11-5 wins to claim the match point for the Fords.
The next outing on the Fords' schedule should be a battle throughout the ladder as Haverford travels to Baltimore, Md., where it will square off against 30th-ranked Johns Hopkins University.
