CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's squash team has been ranked third in the Dunlop 2012-13 Men's College Squash Preseason Team Rankings.

The Crimson compiled a 16-4 overall record and 5-2 mark in Ivy League play last season to place third at the College Squash Association Team Championships. Harvard returns junior All-Americans Ali Farag and Connor McLaughlin from last year. Farag was named the Ivy League Player of the Year and Co-Rookie of the Year after going 16-0 and winning the CSA individual national title last season, while McLaughlin posted a 10-8 mark to earn second team All-America honors.

Harvard sits behind Ivy League rival No. 1 Princeton, last year's Potter Cup champions, and No. 2 Trinity in the polls.

The Crimson opens up its season Nov. 16 at the MIT Round-Robin Tournament.
