In the Ivy series, pitcher Claire Klausner ’17 was stellar in the opener, allowing six hits while striking out eight in the shutout victory. In the second game, Princeton jumped ahead 6–0 before the Crimson clawed back, narrowing the gap to 6–4 in the bottom of the fifth. But the Tigers rallied with seven runs in the final two frames to win the title. Megan Donahey ’20 and Keeley Walsh ’19 each had three hits, while Kaylee Grant ’19 drove in four runs.
Update: Princeton lost its two games in the NCAA Tallahassee Regional, 3-0 to Florida State May 19 and 10-2 to Jacksonville State May 20.
