Harvard Falls to Trinity in CSA Men's Team Championship Title Match
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- One day after pulling off a dramatic, come-from-behind win over Princeton in the Potter Cup semifinals, the No. 3 Harvard men's fell just short of the ultimate goal, dropping a 6-3 decision to Trinity, Sunday afternoon in the 2013 CSA men's championship match at the Brady Squash Courts.
It was Trinity's 14th title in the last 15 years. Princeton broke Trinity's string of 13 straight titles last season.
Harvard opened up a 2-1 lead after the first flight, but the Bantams won four of the next five matches to secure the win and deny the Crimson its 31st national championship.
In other action on Sunday, Princeton claimed third place in the Potter Cup with a 6-3 win over host Yale. Cornell dropped a 5-4 decision to Franklin & Marshall in a Potter Cup consolation match to finish eighth.
In the Hoehn Cup, Dartmouth defeated Columbia, 7-2, to claim third place in the bracket and 11th overall. Navy upended Brown in another consolation match, 7-2.
The collegiate squash season culminates next week in the CSA Individual Championships.
