(Lancaster, Pa.) – The #18-ranked Dickinson women's squash team posted a pair of wins at the Centennial Conference Round Robin on Saturday, topping Haverford College 9-0 and holding off host Franklin & Marshall, 5-4, for the second time in less than a week.

The Red Devils had a strong outing against the 'Fords, claiming seven flights in straight sets. Eloise Nimoityn (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Episcopal Academy) moved into the top flight and survived a five-set battle (9-11, 11-5, 11-5, 6-11, 12-10) while senior Domenica Romo (Ambato, Ecuador/Colegio Atenas) rolled to a three-set win in the second.

Carley Barton (Harare, Zimbabwe/Chisipite) earned a straight set win in the number four spot.

The Red Devils were ready for the challenge as the Diplomats were looking for some vengeance after falling, 5-4, last Sunday.

First-year Lindsay Kuracina (Thorn Hill, Ontario, Canada/Lake Forest, Ill.) led the way, winning the second flight (11-6, 11-3, 13-11).

Aya Sobhy (Stroudsburg, Pa./Blair Academy) survived a tight match in the fourth flight (12-10, 11-7, 12-10) while Barton outlasted Pratiksha Mishra in five sets (11-3, 11-9, 11-6, 11-9, 11-7).

Abbie Wingerd (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga) and Jaime Leigh Edghill (Deigo Martin, Trinidad & Tobago/Holy Weltmer) earned the points at eight and nine.

The Red Devils improve to 9-7 on the season. They will travel to the College Squash Association Team Championships at Trinity University on February 22-24.
