Diplomats Topple Haverford, NYU

HAVERFORD, Pa. - No. 14 Franklin & Marshall swept past No. 35 Haverford and No. 39 New York University on Saturday in women's squash action. The Diplomats have now won five straight matches and jump to 10-7 on the year with the two wins. 

The Diplomats' depth was on full display on Saturday as they recorded straight-game victories at every spot in the lineup against both Haverford and NYU. Roxanna Mead (No. 1), Jazmin Matos (No. 3), and Elizabeth Gatling (No. 4) each notched their fifth straight wins, while Cris Margaret Frias (No. 5), and Dana Rapisarda (No. 7) have now each secured four in a row.

Rapisarda had perhaps the most impressive all-around scores of the day as she allowed just seven totals points from her opponents in her two wins. Matos also posted an impressive final score, surrendering just two points in an 11-0, 11-1, 11-1 triumph over NYU. 

Chelsea Ross (No. 2), Krista Lancione (No. 6), Stephanie Tzarnas (No. 8), and Henrietta Goelet (No. 9) also tallied two wins on the day for F&M.
