Men’s tennis @ ITA Northeast Regional
After a perfect Thursday, Oct. 19, in the ITA Northeast Regional which saw every competing Tiger advance beyond the first round, the Tigers found themselves slowly being whittled down in the rounds of 64, 32, and 16 during various events. Senior Kial Kaiser competed well in his final Northeast Regional, making it to weekend play in both the singles and doubles events. He and junior Jimmy Wasserman made it to the round of 16 in the doubles event before losing to the Harvard tandem of Jean Thirouin and Andy Zhou. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they were not able to come into the tournament full strength, as some players could not get healthy in time for the Northeast Regional.
Women’s soccer @ Harvard: W 6–1

Also scoring for the Tigers were freshman Eve Hewins and senior Vanessa Gregoire. Princeton also tied a school record for largest margin of victory against Harvard, matching a 5–0 win against the Crimson in 2006.
