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).
