The Princeton men's squash team claimed a 7-2 road win at Dartmouth to move both its overall and Ivy League record back to the .500 mark. Freshman Ben Leizman earned a win in his collegiate debut at the No. 9 spot, while Sam Ezratty rallied from a 2-1 deficit to pick up a five-game win at No. 8.

The junior All-America duo of Samuel Kang and Tyler Osborne picked up wins at the top two spots. Kang was pushed to a fourth game, but he dominated it in an 11-0 win over Nick Harrington at the No. 1 spot. Osborne controlled his three games in a win at the No. 2 spot, and senior Dylan Ward fought out of a 1-0 hole to defeat Kyle Martino in four games at No. 3.

Junior Taylor Tutrone, who lost a five-game heartbreaker at Harvard Saturday, bounced back for a sweep at the No. 5 spot, and Vivek Dinodia also had a 3-0 win at No. 6.

The most memorable Princeton wins came at the bottom of the ladder. Ezratty trailed George Henderson 2-1 at the No. 8 spot, but he claimed wins of 11-8 and 11-5 to win the match. In his varsity debut, Leizman won three hard-fought games to grab a 3-0 win at No. 9.

Princeton will now break for finals, but it will return to the courts during the last week of January to continue what has already been a brutal road schedule. After three road matches against Top 6 opponents already this season, the Tigers fill follow a Jan. 27 match at Penn with a match at No. 1 Trinity two nights later.
