Williamstown, MA – The Purple Cows displayed a strong start to their hectic weekend beating Mount Holyoke 9-0 and extending their match streak win to five. For today's match, Sarah Willwerth, Co-Captain Melissa Swann, and Kathryn Wright were not playing in the top 9. Tomorrow, we will see the three lady Ephs back in action and ready to storm the court. 

The Mount Holyoke team came with spirit and competitiveness, but the Williams women's squash team were too good today. The match of the evening was when Julia Ward defeated the Mount Holyoke #1. After losing a tough first game, Ward found her momentum and won the second game to prove that she was still in the match. The two ladies went back and forth until the fifth game where the Williams #1 played strong and smart squash to clinch the match in 5. 

Tomorrow, the women's team has one of the biggest matches of the season where they will be facing George Washington!
