NEW HAVEN, Conn. - After two days of action at the Yale Round Robin, the 10th-ranked Navy squash team has been able to muster just a 1-2 record, claiming a 9-0 victory over MIT in Saturday's opener. The Mids dropped a tough match to No. 13 Bowdoin, while suffering a rare sweep against 12th-ranked Bates.

Navy opened the weekend by winning its first three matches, but that was all it would get as Bowdoin won the remaining six and walked away with the win. Navy is without its No. 1 player, Tucker George (West Hartford, Conn.), this weekend due to injury, forcing the Midshipmen to push up its lineup. Sophomore Nils Mattsson (Spring House, Pa.) stepped into the No. 1 spot where he easily defeated Bowdoin's top player, sophomore Palmer Higgins, 9-6, 9-1, 9-3. Meanwhile, senior captain Jeff Sawin (Haverford, Pa.) earned a victory at the No. 2 spot by defeating senior Jacob Sack, in a four-game match. Navy's final win of the match came at No. 3 where freshman Allan Lutz (McLean, Va.) was matched up against sophomore David Funk. Funk won the opening match, 9-7, but Lutz regrouped and came back to win three in a row to take the match.

After being out of the lineup over the last few matches, junior Michael Beautyman Jr (Plymouth Meeting, Pa.) returned and nearly upset his foe, junior Robert Lynn at No. 8. Beautyman Jr jumped out to a 2-1 lead, but Lynn evened the score with a win in the fourth and just edged Beautyman Jr in the deciding game, 10-9.

After a night's sleep, the Mids returned to the courts on Saturday where they defeated MIT in the morning matchup. Navy cruised past the Engineers, winning all nine matches by a 3-0 count and giving up only eight points. Junior Christopher Zipf (Gladwyne, Pa.), Lutz and Beautyman Jr all swept their foes, 9-0, 9-0, 9-0. Meanwhile, Ben Mantica (Binghamton, N.Y.) picked up a 9-0, 9-0, 9-1 victory over Jonathan Schechter, senior Brian Hamilton (Lake Forest, Ill.) claimed a 9-0, 9-1, 9-1 win against Joey Daroza, Allen Harley (Charleston, W.Va.) produced a 9-0, 9-0, 9-1 triumph over John Kacharzick and senior Matt Wiggins (Sour Lake, Texas) cruised to a 9-1, 9-0, 9-1 win over Ed Sunna.

 

 

Navy was thumped in its final match of the day, dropping a 9-0 decision to 12th-ranked Bates. The Mids were unable to get much going, as five of the matches were decided in four games and the remaining four were 3-0 decisions. Mattsson won the opening game of his match, 9-1, but was unable to continue the momentum as he dropped the next three games, 9-0, 9-1, 9-0. Beautyman Jr. played a hard-fought match at No. 8 against Chip Russell. After dropping a 10-8 decision in the opening game, Beautyman Jr came back to take the second game, 10-9. Russell, however, claimed the match with 10-9 and 9-5 wins in the third and fourth. Lutz, Zipf and Hamilton also pushed their opponents to four-game matches.

The Midshipmen wrap up action at the Yale Round Robin when they face 28th-ranked Colby on Sunday morning at 9:00.
