Kelly Shon and the Tigers will play in the Ivy League Championship tournament this weekend.

The Princeton women's golf team will head to the Ivy League Championship at the Seaview Golf Resort in Galloway, N.J. this weekend. The tournament will run Friday through Sunday with one round each day beginning at 8 a.m.

Complete information through the Ivy League office, including results, can be found here.

The Tigers have finished in the top four in every championship tournament since the first one was conducted in 1997. The tournament has included seven Ivy teams, all except Cornell, since 2004 after starting with five and adding a sixth in 2000 (Penn) before Columbia became the most recent addition. Princeton won titles in 1999, 2001, 2004 and 2005 while finishing runner-up in 1997, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2007.

Princeton has also claimed the most individual titles of any school, winning eight of a possible 15. Mary Moan '97 (1997), Julia Allison '01 (1999, 2001), Avery Kiser '05 (2002, 2003, 2004) and Susannah Aboff '09 (2008, 2009) have been Princeton's winners.

The Tigers finished third at last year's Ivy League meet, which was held at Atlantic City Country Club. Princeton had three players in the top 10, with Rachel Blum '11 tying for third, current sophomore Kelly Shon tying for fifth and Kate Scarpetta '11 tying for eighth. Shon and Wonji Choi, who would be competing in her fourth Ivy League Championship tournament, are the only members of last year's fivesome who can compete this time.

Earlier this spring, Shon became the first Tiger since Aboff in October 2008 to win medalist honors at back-to-back tournaments, winning the Low Country Intercollegiate in South Carolina and the Brown Invitational in Rhode Island.

Yale won last year's title by four shots over Harvard while finishing seven in front of third-place Princeton. Current sophomore Michelle Piyapattra of Columbia was the individual champion at 2-under, winning by 10 shots over Harvard's then-senior Mia Kabasakalis.
