Men’s squash opens its season with home matches against No. 30 Georgetown and No. 4 Cornell this weekend. Georgetown (2-3) and Cornell (4-0) have already played a number of matches whereas the Lions have only participaed in the Ivy League Scrimmages earlier in November. The Light Blue has done well against the Hoyas recently, beating them 5-4 and 8-1 in the last two seasons. But Sunday’s matchup against Cornell will be a much tougher test for the Lions. The Big Red is coming off four consecutive wins against No. 11 Western Ontario, No. 21 Hamilton, No. 12 Williams, and No. 25 Stanford. Both matches will be at the SL Green StreetSquash Center, with Friday’s match against Georgetown starting at 8 p.m. and Sunday’s match starting at 11 a.m.
