Sophomore Stephanie Schrage came away with a singles victory, the first Tiger to win a singles regional title since 2012, for the tournament and thus claiming her bid to play at ITA Fall Nationals in Surprise, Arizona, in November.
Hoping to gain ground in the NWPC title race, the Tigers traveled to New England for three conference games over two days. After starting the weekend with a win over MIT, the Tigers suffered back to back one goal losses to Harvard and Brown, failing to gain ground in the standings.
The Princeton women’s water polo team (23–8) suffered a season-ending heartbreaker this past weekend at the Collegiate Water Polo Association Championships at Bucknell University. Defeating the No. 23 Harvard Crimson and the No. 14 Indiana Hoosiers in the first two rounds, the Tigers made it to the championship game, only to fall to their long-time rivals, the No. 11 Michigan Wolverines, 11–8.
This past weekend was a thrilling one for the Princeton women’s water polo team as CWPA conference play got underway at Harvard University’s Blodgett Pool. The No. 11 Princeton Tigers (17–7) took a full sweep of the season’s first league tournament, defeating the No. 13 Indiana Hoosiers (24–7), the St. Francis College Red Flashes (12–14), No. 12 Hartwick Hawks (27–9), and No. 9 Michigan Wolverines (27–8).
“I think that this weekend was okay. We lost a really tough game that we could have won against the Hawks, but it’s still early in the season. We have a lot of tough games coming up in California that I’m looking forward to playing,” said senior center Chelsea Johnson.
