Women’s volleyball was close to perfect in a pair of weekend sweeps on the road against Columbia and Cornell.
Princeton and Yale both possess 7–1 records in Ivy League play. On Friday, they play for sole control of the top spot.
Competing for the top spot in the Ivy League, women’s volleyball squared off against Cornell and Columbia this past weekend. The Tigers left little doubt as to who was the Ivy favorite after winning in straight sets against both teams to take sole possession of first. Now, they hope to continue their momentum against Penn this weekend.
Hoping to remain undefeated in conference play, the Tigers hit the road to take on Dartmouth and Harvard. While they handled the Big Green in three sets, they were upset by the Crimson in three sets and dropped to 4–1 in Ivy play. Now, the Tigers get set for a showdown against fellow conference leader Cornell.
The women’s volleyball team will continue Ivy League play this weekend with matches against Brown and Yale on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
In November 2017, the Princeton women’s volleyball team won its third straight Ivy League Championship. While it was initially tied with Yale for the Ivy League title, a tiebreaker game allowed the Tigers to clinch the outright title and advance to the NCAA tournament, where they fell to Iowa State in three sets. Coming off of an 18–8 overall and 10–4 conference record, the Tigers are hungry for the same success.
“I’ve always wanted to play this game for as long as I can,” Leslie Robinson ’18 said. “I love what I have gotten from it and the person it has helped me become, win or lose. I’ve gained so many friends and they have become my family.”
Heading into the heart of Ivy League play, both the men’s and women’s tennis teams look to build off of quality wins last week. The men defeated Cornell 4–3 in an exciting match, while the women remain undefeated in Ivy League play after weekend victories.
After coming off of a 4–3 loss at Penn State, the Princeton men’s tennis team (15–7) traveled to Florida over spring break to compete in its final series of matches before Ivy League play begin this weekend. The 46th-ranked Tigers faced the 40th-ranked University of Central Florida (9–6), University of South Florida (11–7), and Florida Gulf Coast University (5–9).
