Coming off a 2-2 split the previous weekend, the men’s squash team (5-4, 1-2 Ivy) has a chance to make a big statement before heading into its second half of conference play. The Lions prepare to face No. 17 Middlebury on Saturday followed by No. 11 Williams on Sunday. Despite losing to Middlebury 7-2 last year, the team is hoping that it can produce a win this year. The big match of the weekend will be against Williams, which the Light Blue played twice last year. During the regular season, the Lions lost to Williams, but the Lions upset them 5-4 in the B Division Men’s National Team Championships to achieve their No. 10 ranking. The Lions play Middlebury in Vermont on Saturday at 12 p.m. and Williams in Massachusetts on Sunday at 12 p.m.
