Weekly Sports Roundup (10/7-10/13)

The Bulldogs added two Ivy League wins to their previous three Ivy victories, making for a perfect 5–0 conference record. The team defeated Penn on Friday and Princeton on Saturday, each with scores of 3–1, and the team can now look forward to nine more Ivy games before the season ends.
