Men’s Squash Ranked No. 5 in 2016-17 Dunlop Preseason Poll

The Crimson finished at No. 6 in the final College Squash Association rankings in 2015-16 (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.
– The Harvard men's squash team was recently selected No. 5 in the Dunlop 2016-17 Men's College Squash Preseason Rankings. The Crimson hopes to return to national title contention after falling in the Potter Cup final consolation match a year ago.

Harvard looks to bounce back from a season in which it posted a losing record (6-7, 5-2 Ivy) for the first time since the 1946-47 campaign. The Crimson last won the Potter Cup in 2014, its first national title since winning five in a row from 1994-98.

Senior Bryan Koh and Devin McLaughlin return as the captains after each served as a co-captain during their junior season. Both were named CSA Scholar-Athletes, while Koh was also selected to the CSA second team All-America. The Crimson welcomes back 13 players from a year ago, including five seniors, and adds four incoming freshmen.

Harvard opens its 2016-17 season at the Ivy Scrimmages hosted by Yale this weekend on Nov. 12.
