After a week break in play, the No. 12 Princeton women's water polo team travels to George Washington (8-6, 2-1 Southern) for a Friday, Mar. 8 meeting at 7 p.m. The game marks the fifth road contest amidst the Tigers' (11-2, 1-0 Southern) 13-game road swing.

Last Time Out: The Tigers went 4-0 at the CWPA/MAAC Crossover from Feb. 23-24. They earned their first shutout win of the year, 12-0, over Siena, and followed that up with victories over Iona, Wagner and Villanova. Princeton outscored its opponents 54-23.

On Deck: The extended road swing caps off with a spring break trip to Southern California. The Tigers open at the San Diego State-hosted Aztec Invite from Mar. 16-17. The following week, Princeton travels to Los Angeles for the LMU Invite. Five of eight opponents the Tigers are slated to face are currently national ranked.

Tabbed at 12: Princeton remains ranked 12th in the Women's Varsity Top 20 with 43 points. The only other East Coast program ranked higher than the Tigers is CWPA rival Indiana at No. 11.

Offensive Output: Seven Tigers have 10 goals or more 13 games into the year. Juniors Katie Rigler and Molly McBee headline the attack with 26 and 19 goals, respectively.

Saving the Day: Freshman Ashleigh Johnson has already established a new single-game saves record with 19 and enters Friday's game with 151 saves on the year. She has nearly eclipsed the all-time top-13 in saves in a season, a 159-save record set by Madeline McCarthy in 2003. Ognjenka Vukmirovic owns the all-time record with 302, set in 1998.

Scouting George Washington: The Colonials (8-6, 2-1 Southern) are riding a two-game winning streak entering Friday's game. Three George Washington players have scored 21 or more goals with freshman Hannah Cox's team-high 38 leading the way. Megan Brolley serves as GWU's top defensive field player with 18 steals and in goal Chandler Vilander has 76 saves, 110 goals against and a 10.48 goals against average.
