This weekend, Princeton women’s water polo will travel to Cambridge to play its first Ivy League opponent, Harvard, as well as Marist College and Iona College. After suffering its first loss of the season at the hands of No. 20 Wagner this past weekend during an otherwise successful trip to the Bucknell Invitational, the No. 15 Tigers (6-1) face one of their largest tests of the young season, as all three of their upcoming opponents are ranked in the top 30 in the country. On Saturday morning, Princeton takes on No. 27 Marist (3-9). Despite its below .500 record, Marist is not a team the Tigers will take lightly. Most of its losses have gone to ranked opponents, including a narrow 8-9 defeat to Harvard and a 6-10 setback at the hands of No. 6 Hawaii. Furthermore, one of the Foxes’ three wins came against Bucknell, the only team Princeton has lost to this season. In last season’s contest, Princeton prevailed 10-5 in Cambridge, largely behind the strength of then-goalie Ashleigh Johnson’s 16 saves. With Johnson no longer in net and Marist coming in with much more experience in close games against strong opponents, Princeton will have to play a great game to repeat last year’s convincing victory.
