The Middlebury women's squash team, the #5 seed in the Kurtz Cup (B Division), posted a 1-1 mark during the CSA Team Championships hosted by Harvard. The Panthers, ranked 13th nationally, battled 12th-ranked Williams in a quarterfinal match on Friday before falling by a 7-2 score. In the back draw Saturday, the Panthers defeated 16th-ranked Bates by a 7-2 tally. With the impending winter storm set to hit the area, Sunday's consolation final match against 15th-ranked Drexel was cancelled. Middlebury concludes its season with an overall record of 16-7.

Against the Ephs on Friday, Middlebury received a five-set win from Saskia Pownall-Gray at #1, while Charlotte Dewey at #3 and Zoe Carey at #6 were victorious in straight sets.

In Saturday's victory over Bates, straight-set wins came from Dewey at #3, Carey at #6, Katie Dewey in the #7 spot, Lucy Bostwick at #8 and Lily Bogle at #9. Middlebury's other victories were posted by Tiffany Hau in four sets at #4 and Liddy Renner, who trailed 2-1 before pulling out the final two sets at #5.
