Weekly Sports Roundup (12/31–1/6)

With the start of the new year, several Yale teams returned to the fields to resume their winter seasons—and some athletes did more than just rest this break, it seems. The men's and women's squash teams, ranked No. 2 and No. 6 in the nation, respectively, both defeated Colby and Williams this Saturday. The women's team (3–0) posted 9–0 sweeps against both schools, while the men's team (3–0) went 9–0 against Colby and 5–4 against Williams. The Bulldogs open Ivy League play next weekend, when they face Cornell and Columbia.
