Lord Jeff Squash Sides Fall at Dartmouth, 9-0

HANOVER, NH – For the second time in as many days, the Amherst College men’s and women’s squash teams suffered a pair of 9-0 defeats at the hands of an Ivy League opponent. Following  a pair of losses to Yale at home on Friday, the Lord Jeff teams traveled to Dartmouth on Saturday only to come away empty-handed.

After the consecutive losses, both of Amherst teams sit at 3-2 on the year. The wins improve the Big Green women’s side to 3-2, and the men’s team to 4-2 overall.

In the women’s matchup, just one player was able to force her Dartmouth opponent into a fourth frame. That was senior Allie Dalglish (Fort Washington, PA), Amherst’s former number one as a sophomore. Dalglish, now playing at number four has helped provide a much deeper lineup for the Lord Jeffs and played the best bout of the day against Becky Lau. After dropping the first two sets 11-8 and 12-10, Dalglish won the third frame 11-9 before falling 11-6 in the final game.

In the men’s match, Charles Loesch-Quintin (Philadelphia, PA), Todd Lavine (Atherton, CA) and Matt Arnold (Larchmont, NY) each pulled a single game off their opponent as the Big Green easily won. Loesch-Quintin’s match with Robert Maycock was very close, with the Lord Jeff sophomore taking the first set 11-9, before falling 12-10 in extra points in the second stanza. Maycock closed out the win 11-6 and 11-5.

Amherst will return to action at home this weekend and one of three sites for the Pioneer Valley Invitational. Amherst will play two matches a day on each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, opening up against Hobart on the men’s side on Friday.
