The Middlebury women's squash team fell by a 7-2 score on Sunday against No. 13 Williams in the Kurtz Cup's 13th/14th-place match at the CSA Team Championships. The match took place at Wesleyan's Rosenbaum Squash Center. The Panthers finish the season ranked 14th nationally with a record of 13-6.

The Ephs were victorious in the first six matches to finish. Williams collected wins at No. 3, No. 9 and No. 6, followed by triumphs in the fifth, eighth and second slots.

Middlebury made the score 6-1 when Beatrijs Kuijpers won after her opponent retired late in the first game atop the ladder.

The Ephs made the score 7-1 with a four-game decision at No. 4, before Gwen Davis rounded out the action with a five-game triumph in the seventh spot against Kathryn Wright (9-11, 11-5, 11-4, 10-12, 11-9).
