The national champion Princeton men's squash team will face the toughest test of the first half of its season Saturday when it hosts the fifth-ranked Rochester Yellowjackets Saturday at 3 pm.

The top-ranked Tigers are 3-0 this season, including a 9-0 victory over No. 7 Franklin & Marshall in the season opener. Led by 2011 individual national champion Todd Harrity and the All-America sophomore duo of Tyler Osborne and Samuel Kang, Princeton has been especially strong at the top of its lineup.

While there is a good deal of championship experience in the lineup, including junior Dylan Ward and senior Steve Harrington, head coach Bob Callahan has been pleased with the development of his young players, including sophomores Taylor Tutrone and David Hoffman, as well as freshmen Vivek Dinodia and Michael LeBlanc.

Rochester is 4-1 on the season, though the lone loss was an impressive 5-4 loss against No. 3 Harvard. Four of Rochester's five losses came by 3-1 scores, including one by No. 2 player Neil Cordell against a Top 15-ranked opponent.

Princeton and Rochester have played several times in recent seasons, and the two squads have produced several close matches. The Tigers won 6-3 last season in Rochester, and it held on for a 5-4 win the previous season in the CSA third-place match.

Rochester is led by sixth-ranked Andres Duany, who will take on Harrity in the headline match of the weekend. The team match will be played in three shifts, and every match will be streamed live on GoPrincetonTigers.TV.
