Women’s hockey begins ‘second season’ against Quinnipiac in ECAC Quarterfinals

The Bobcats left their mark in Princeton’s record books in 2017 when they defeated the Tigers 3–2 in triple OT of game one in the ECAC Quarterfinals, the longest game in Tiger history. Since then, however, Princeton has dominated them, snuffing that 2017 team by winning the next two in the series, and then winning five of the six meetings since.

Women’s tennis goes 2–1 at ITA Indoors as Shvets pulls off massive upset

The women's tennis team went 2–1 at the ITA Indoor Nationals in Chicago this weekend. They were defeated by No. 7 NC State but went on to win all their matches against Arizona State and No. 6 Pepperdine. The Tigers went into the weekend ranked No. 17, but they will likely rise in next week's polls due to the win over Pepperdine. The highlight of the weekend was when Princeton sophomore singles player Brianna Shvets, ranked 34th in the nation, upset Ashley Lahey, the nation's top player, in straight sets.

Rather than solely praise a system for its success, or condemn a system for its failures, we should work to try and improve the process no matter what side of the line we fall on.
