The Princeton Women's Ice Hockey Team has been busy over the Christmas season, playing four times since the start of the break, three of which were for the Eastern College Athletic Conference. This means the Tigers' unbeaten streak continued to eight games. After picking up the three conference wins, the Tigers now find themselves second in the standings, above all their other Ivy League counterparts. However, the Tigers have played 16 games compared to the 10 played by third-place St. Lawrence, which trails behind by just a point. During the New Year's weekend, the Tigers hosted Penn State, where they tied 5-5 with the Nittany Lions, and then No. 8 Quinnipiac, topping the Bobcats 3-2. Freshman forward Carly Bullock netted her first career hat trick and freshman goalkeeper Steph Neatby, made a total of 29 saves, both helping lead Princeton to its first win over Quinnipiac since January 2011.

However, the veteran Princeton team led by head coach Mitch Henderson outlasted Penn down the stretch to grab the win.

After both teams emerged victorious in their season finales, the Princeton and Penn football teams were awarded the honor of Ivy League co-champions. While this obviously represents a major accomplishment for both teams, it also presents several conundrums. Does a team celebrate a tie for the conference championship with the same vigor as it would an outright win? Were players and fans even aware that a tie was a possibility, or did they make the same mistake as Donovan McNabb in 2008, who admitted that he didn’t realize an NFL game could end in a tie? (“I hate to see what happens in the Super Bowl… you have to settle with a tie,” he remarked). Anyways, ties are no fun, so in this article, we will explore whether Princeton or Penn is the “true” Ivy League champion.
