On Senior Day, the two members of the Princeton men’s squash Class of 2014 made sure it left Jadwin victorious in their final home matches. Unfortunately, those two wins would not be enough for the Tigers, who fell 6-3 in their regular season finale to Cornell.

Tri-captain Dylan Ward was part of the first shift for Princeton, and he was dominant in a 3-0 win at the No. 3 spot over Kevin Flannery. Ward lost only eight points in his final match at Jadwin, the site of both his wins in the 2012 CSA national championship final and a 2013 win over Harvard that helped clinch an Ivy League title.

Two close losses left the Tigers down 2-1 after the first shift. Sophomore Michael LeBlanc lose a 32-point marathon in the fourth to lose 3-1, and freshman Ben Leizman went the distance before falling 11-8 in the fifth.

Princeton evened the team match in the second shift, thanks in part to another senior tri-captain. Ash Egan overcame a loss in the opening game to win three straight, including a 12-10 win in the fourth. Junior tri-captain Tyler Osborne also went four games, but his wins off 11-8 and 11-7 finished a 3-1 win over Aditiya Jagtap.

A Cornell win at No. 5 meant that the team that won the final shift would win the match. The Big Red had the edge of sending one former national individual finalist to the court, and he got the job done. Senior Nick Sachvie, who lost to Princeton’s Todd Harrity in the 2011 national final, defeated Samuel Kang in three games at the No. 1 spot, and Bryan Keating won three close games over David Hoffman to seal the win at No. 4.

The final match on court also went the distance, but Cornell’s Graham Dietz held off Sam Ezratty in the fifth game to earn a 3-2 win.

Princeton will now wait for the draw for next weekend’s CSA team national championships, which will be held at Harvard.
