The Tigers will be looking to rebound after a series loss to Cornell (10–32, 5–13) last weekend, in which they took the first game 10–5 and lost both of the next two by a score of 4–3. The series saw strong performances from senior outfielder Kaitlyn Waslawski (4 for 11, 4 RBI) and junior outfielder Megan Donahey (6 for 10, 2 runs scored).
