Men’s Baseball vs. Cornell: W 7–6
After a tough first game against the Big Red, the baseball team came back in the second game to tie up the series at one apiece. The Tigers would ultimately claim the series victory with a narrow 7–6 win this past Sunday. Chris Davis’ single in the seventh inning would prove to be the game-winner as the Orange and Black held their rivals scoreless in the final two innings of the match. Princeton’s Ivy League record improved to 2–1 with the win. The Tigers will face Monmouth at home this weekend before playing Brown this coming weekend.
Men’s Tennis vs. Penn: L 6–1
The men’s tennis team opened Ivy League play against Penn this past weekend. Despite strong performances thus far, the Tigers fell to the Quakers 6–1. While the team started out strong and had a great opportunity to claim the doubles point, Penn managed to rally and land the first blow. The rest of the match would belong to the Quakers as they grabbed five singles points to claim the win. The Princeton side will undoubtedly be looking to improve on this performance this weekend as they face Columbia and Cornell.
Men’s Lacrosse @ Brown: L 14–13
With 14.3 seconds remaining in the game, Brown’s Michael Panepinto scored the game-winning goal to give Brown their first Ivy League win of the season. The 14–13 loss puts the Tigers in foreign territory as Princeton has yet to win a conference game this season. The Orange and Black will have some time to regroup in the coming week as they face off against non-conference opponent Stony Brook University. The Tigers will face Dartmouth April 14.
Men’s Crew @ Columbia: L 1.1 seconds
Sixth-ranked Columbia edged out second-ranked Princeton by 1.1 seconds to claim its first win in the Campbell Cup series. The Lions finished with a time of 6:03.6, while Princeton finished closely after with a time of 6:04.7. Columbia would also claim the 2V race. However, the Tiger’s would leave their weekend trip with two major victories from their 3V and 4V teams.
