With key home Ivy League matchups looming this weekend, Abram Ayala (wrestling) and Denna Laing (women's ice hockey) join the latest edition of TigerCast.
Ayala has helped the Princeton wrestling team to an 8-2 record this season, and he had the final pin in a dramatic 23-20 comeback win at Boston University last Saturday night. Ayala can reach the 20-win mark with a victory this weekend, and he is looking to help Princeton to its second win over Columbia in the last 13 attempts.
Laing is the leading scorer on a women's ice hockey team that will play its final regular season home games at Baker Rink this weekend. Princeton takes on Brown Friday at 7 pm, and then plays Yale at 4 pm Saturday in a Skate with the Tigers game. The Tigers do have an outside chance to host a home quarterfinal series with a strong finish, but a recent three-point weekend at St. Lawrence and Clarkson shows that this team is capable of winning anywhere.
TigerCast, presented by PNC Bank, is the official podcast of Princeton Athletics. Previous episodes of TigerCast can be downloaded for free anytime at GoPrincetonTigers.com.
