The top-ranked and undefeated Princeton women's squash team moved to 7-0 on the season with an 8-1 victory over seventh-ranked Stanford Friday night at the Brady Squash Center in New Haven, Conn.

Princeton senior co-captain Julie Cerullo earned a 3-1 victory over Cardinal senior Pamela Chua at the No. 1 position in her final tune-up before taking on 2011 national champion Millie Tomlinson of Yale. Libby Eyre fell in four games at No. 2, but the rest of the Princeton roster earned victories to keep the Tigers' perfect season going.

There were several close games throughout the match, including at the No. 3 spot, where sophomore Nicole Bunyan had to earn consecutive 13-11 wins to put her match away against Madeleine Gill.

Princeton will return to the Brady Center Saturday at noon to take on the host Bulldogs. Yale is ranked fifth, but it is undefeated in the league with road wins at Cornell and Columbia. The Bulldogs dropped to fifth in the rankings only after a 5-4 road loss at Trinity, in which four of the Yale losses were incredibly close. Top player and 2011 national champion Millie Tomlinson lost in five games, while three others players lost by two points in a tight fourth game.

Yale has won five straight matches in the series, including a pair of 7-2 decisions last season. Princeton's last victory over Yale came in 2010, a 5-4 thriller at Jadwin.
