Cornell will visit the Princeton softball team for their annual four-game series Saturday and Sunday to wrap the Ivy League season. Doubleheaders each day at the Class of 1895 Field will begin at 12:30 p.m.

In addition to Sunday's Senior Day honors for seniors Maddie Cousens and Tory Roberts, Princeton will recognize Khristin Kyllo, who entered Princeton as a member of the Class of 2014 but passed away on Jan. 13, 2011 during her freshman year. In rememberance, Sunday's doubleheader has been designated a Purple Game, and fans are invited to wear purple for epilepsy awareness. For more information, visit Purple Day at PurpleDay.org and SUDEP Aware at sudepaware.org.

Both teams enter the final weekend still mathematically alive for the Ivy South divisional title, but the path there involves much help from the Columbia-Penn series this weekend and possibly the outcome of an unfinished game between Penn and Harvard. Those scenarios will become much clearer once Saturday's play is complete, as the Columbia-Penn series will be done, presuming playable weather, and the Cornell-Princeton series will be half over.

Penn (10-5) leads Columbia (8-8) by two and a half games and Princeton (7-9) and Cornell (6-8) each by three and a half games in the Ivy South.

Here is a look at the Tigers and the Big Red heading into the weekend:

Princeton | Stats
Record: 15-24, 7-9 Ivy
Top Two Pitchers: Erica Nori, Fr., 8-6, 2.21 ERA, 88 2/3 IP; Shanna Christian, So., 5-11, 4.48 ERA, 89 IP
Team BA: .238 | Team ERA: 3.71
Cornell | Stats
Record: 15-23, 6-8 Ivy
Top Two Pitchers: Alyson Onyon, Sr., 8-9, 3.53 ERA, 115 IP; Meg Parker, So., 5-9, 5.67 ERA, 84 IP
Team BA: .267 | Team ERA: 4.63

Princeton and Cornell have played an annual four-game series since 2007, but the Tigers have only won two of the seven series, in 2008 and 2013. A series win would be the first back-to-back series victories for Princeton in that span, and a sweep would also be a first, as Princeton took the '08 and '13 series 3-1.
