ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The 13th-ranked Navy squash team (10-4) dropped its third straight match to a team ranked among the nation’s top 10 when on Saturday the ninth-ranked Drexel Dragons (3-6) cruised past the Mids, 9-1, in Annapolis. Navy lost a pair of 7-2 decisions prior to the semester break to #5 Penn and #10 Dartmouth.
