GETTING TO KNOW: LAUREN SHANLEY l KERRY GRUENDEL
IVY LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIPS CENTRAL
On the eve of her final Ivy League championship weekend, first-team All-Ivy and Honorable Mention All-America honoree Meredith Monroe chats with GoPrincetonTigers.TV about her swim career, her feelings about Princeton and the Tiger swim team, and the incredible support Princeton gets from its alumni.
Monroe, a senior co-captain, is one of the most decorated swimmers in the program. As a freshman, she anchored the 800 free relay to All-America honors, and it was her final sprint that rallied Princeton to the historic finish. She has made eight Ivy League individual championship finals in her first three years, and she won the 2010 200 back title.
Stay with GoPrincetonTigers.com throughout the week for full coverage of the Ivy League Championship weekend. A preview of the weekend meet will be posted Wednesday, and 2011 Ivy League individual champion (100 back) Lisa Boyce will join TigerCast Thursday to talk about the weekend.
Full results for all sessions will be available Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, as Princeton tries to upset host Harvard and win its 11th Ivy title in the last 13 years.
