Monday is an off day for the Princeton softball team, but the rest of the week will be far different for the Tigers.

Princeton will face Cal Tuesday, Saint Mary's for a pair Wednesday, and Pacific, San Diego State and Saint Mary's at Pacific's tournament Thursday through Saturday before heading home.

Princeton is 3-9 on the season and will start Ivy League play March 30 in its first game following the spring trip. Senior Nicole Ontiveros leads the team with a .415 batting average while freshman Alyssa Schmidt is close behind at .400. Each of Princeton's three pitchers - freshmen Meredith Brown and juniors Alex Peyton and Liza Kuhn - have a win this season.

California, which was ranked No. 2 in the March 13 NFCA poll, enters the 6 p.m. ET game Tuesday at 25-1 after taking its only loss this past Thursday at Hawai'i in extra frames. Princeton is 0-3 all-time against the Bears, having faced them in 2004, 2005 and 2008.

Princeton is 2-2 all-time against Saint Mary's, having faced the Gaels in 2006, 2009 and 2010. Wednesday's doubleheader will start at 4 p.m. ET. Saint Mary's stands at 7-14 heading into the Princeton twinbill.

In Stockton, Calif., the Tigers will see the Gaels again at 5:15 p.m. ET Friday after meeting Pacific at 9 p.m. ET Thursday and San Diego State at 3 p.m. ET Friday. The trip will close with another game against Pacific at 5:30 p.m. ET Saturday.

Princeton is 4-4 against Pacific with meetings in 2004 and 2005 and 2008-10. The Tigers and San Diego State have never met.

SDSU enters the game with Princeton at 16-16, while Pacific enters Thursday's game at 14-10.
