Streaking Tigers win 10th, 11th straight

“Ohh, sweet Caroline, good times never seem so good…”
Arms in the air, dancing together in a circle to Neil Diamond, the women’s volleyball team looked as confident and euphoric as could be. Princeton (11-0 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) certainly didn’t look intimidated by highly competitive and undefeated D-III Juniata (20-1).
Singing and shimmying together in small groups in between warm-up drills, the Tigers really did have something to be jubilant about, as they sat on a 10-0 record heading into Sunday’s match.
Looking to maintain its own unblemished record, Juniata initially took the lead in all three games. The Tigers rallied in each game, however, and stole the match, 3-0.
The first game centered on a pair of sophomores, middle-blocker Lindsey Ensign and setter Bailey Robinson, who together proved to be an unstoppable duo. Freshman outside hitter Sheena Donohue also scored big for the Tigers in the first game. Princeton took the first game, 32-30.
Sophomore outside hitter Amber Thomas led the Eagles, while setter Beth Kozak, and outside hitter Rachael Schatz attempted to knock down Princeton with their play close to the net.
