Princeton baseball (13–23, 8–10 Ivy) won its last home series of the season last weekend, taking two out of three games against Brown (11–25, 8–10 Ivy) for their second consecutive series victory.
Mike Ford made his Major League Baseball debut last weekend, becoming the seventh player to make it to the sport’s highest level after playing at Princeton for current head coach Scott Bradley.
Princeton baseball kicked off the second half of its Ivy League campaign with a strong series in Ithaca this past weekend. Buoyed by strong outings from senior LHP Ryan Smith in the opening game and junior RHP Andrew Gnazzo in the rubber match, the Tigers showed the league what they can do with a squad nearly at full strength.
Princeton’s baseball team played a three game series against Columbia on Saturday and Sunday where they won one and lost two against Lions. Senior Max West remains hopeful about the remainder of the season, though, “We have every piece of the puzzle that we need to be a winning team, and in these next coming weeks we’re just going to have to put it all together.”
Last weekend, a struggling Princeton baseball squad traveled to New England for a three-game set. And for the second week in a row, they returned to New Jersey with just one win.
It was a weekend of ups and downs in DeNunzio Pool for the women’s swimming and diving team, as they finished third overall in an Ivy League championship meet that Head Coach Bret Lundgaard knew would be difficult to win from the onset.
UPDATE: Scribbick notches individual win as women's swim and dive remains third in Ivy Championships
After two days of the Women’s Swimming and Diving Ivy League Championships, the Tigers find themselves in third.
In a split weekend for the swimming and diving program, both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams traveled to New York for meets with the Columbia Lions. The Princeton women narrowly lost in Percy Uris Natatorium on Friday, dropping to 6–1 on the season, and the men continued their unbeaten run on Saturday to climb to 6–0.
Men’s swimming and diving finished first but women’s finished last in this weekend’s Big Al Invitational field of five teams.
In their final tune-up, against St. John’s, before the conference-heavy home stretch of the season, men’s soccer (6–4–1, 1–0–1 Ivy League) dominated on paper for most of regulation but were unable to score in the first 90 minutes.
