Baseball @ Columbia L 2–0 , W 10–5, and W 7–6
After a 1–11 start to the season and an 0–4 start to EIVA play, the suggestion that men’s volleyball would make it all the way to the EIVA conference final might have seemed laughable. However, after the fourth-seeded Tigers upset top-seeded George Mason in four sets on Thursday’s semifinal, that’s exactly what happened. Unfortunately for the team, they would fall to Harvard in four sets in a clash of Ivy League rivals, coming up short in their bid to win their first EIVA title in 20 years.

The team received an absolute gem of a pitching performance in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader from senior righthanded pitcher Ben Gross, who threw his first ever complete-game shutout in a 3–0 win, but still lost the series after falling 7–2 and 10–1 in the other two games.
Heading into the Ivy League championships this weekend, men’s and women’s golf hope for wins to secure bids to the NCAA tournament. The league showdowns will run Friday through Sunday, with one round each day.

The last time men’s volleyball faced off against George Mason, the team took two of the first three sets from the EIVA regular season champions before ultimately losing in five.

The women’s water polo team ended conference play with a four-game home stand over the weekend. The Tigers faced George Washington, Brown, Harvard, and Bucknell at DeNunzio Pool, winning all four of their matches. The wins doubled Princeton’s winning streak to eight games and helped the Tigers end the regular season with a perfect 8–0 performance in the CWPA. The victories ensured the Orange and Black the first seed in the upcoming CWPA tournament championship, where they will face off against the winner of the Harvard vs. St. Francis game.
This past weekend, the men’s lacrosse team (6–5, 1–3 Ivy League) hosted Dartmouth (2–9, 0–4) in its second-to-last home Ivy League game of the season. Princeton took an early lead on a goal from sophomore midfield Connor McCarthy about five minutes in to the game. From then on, the Tigers never looked back as they built a 13–3 lead by halftime, similar to their game last week against Stony Brook. Princeton would go on to win 24–13 behind big days from sophomore attack Phillip Robertson, sophomore attack Michael Sowers, senior midfield Austin Sims, and senior midfield Riley Thompson. Sowers had 10 points on the day (three goals, seven assists), Thompson and Sims each had seven points, and Robertson tallied six goals. Sowers and Brown both continued their career streaks of two points per game and a goal per game respectively. Both are also the only two current players to have started every game of their careers at Princeton. Lastly, both Sims and Thompson reached the 100-point career mark and now sit at 103 and 101 respectively.
The women’s lacrosse team (7–5, 3–1 Ivy) dominated Yale (7–6 overall, 2–3 Ivy) to pick up their third conference win of the season.

It also marks the 11th straight time the Orange and Black have beaten the Bulldogs in their head-to-head matchups. The win puts Princeton third in the Ivy League standings behind Penn (10–2, 4–0 Ivy) and Dartmouth (8–3, 4–1 Ivy).
The men’s volleyball team clinched a playoff berth in EIVA tournament after a historic win over Penn State on Friday, April 13.

The women’s lacrosse team took No. 2 Maryland to the wire, building on a strong lead to stay ahead for the first 50 minutes of the game. However, the Terps came back as a free-position attempt with 45.1 seconds left on the clock gave Maryland the opportunity to steal the game. After giving the Terps their largest deficit all season, the Tigers were unable to hold on and were narrowly edged out by Maryland 11–10.
The softball team (5–21 overall, 3–6 Ivy) struggled to find its rhythm early in its match against Monmouth (13–13) on Tuesday. Despite a rally late in the game, the Tigers were unable to cut the deficit as the Hawks ended the game with a 13–7 win.
