Laura Slater and Harrison Wagner have been part of Princeton's perfect start to the 2011-12 seasons.

Both the Princeton men's and women's swimming and diving teams posted memorable first halves to their respective 2011-12 seasons. They'll return to the water Sunday at Dartmouth knowing, however, that they'll remember this year based on the next two months.

One week before the annual H-Y-P showdown at Harvard's Blodgett Pool, the Princeton teams will shake off the holiday/Finals rust when they compete with the Big Green Sunday at 11 a.m. in Dartmouth's Karl Michael Pool.

The Princeton women, who have won each of the last two Ivy League titles and 41 consecutive meets, are 3-0 on the season and were dominant winners in the 2011 Big Al Open. Co-captains Meredith Monroe and Kerry Gruendel are experienced leaders in the Class of 2012, but Princeton has been thrilled by the early performances of each class, including an impressive freshman group.

Sophomore Lisa Boyce, who has already placed her name in the Princeton record book, won two individual events last season in the Tigers' 131.5-106.5 home victory over the Big Green. Classmate Rachel Zambrowicz got her strong spring rolling with a three-meter win in the same meet; less than a month later, she earned Ivy League Championship Diver of the Meet honors.

The Tiger men are currently ranked 22nd nationally after a thrilling win over reigning Patriot League champion Navy two weeks ago. The Tigers, 4-0 on the season, were led by triple winner Jon Christensen and double winner Paul Nolle in the thriller over the Midshipmen.

Both Colin Cordes and Stevie Vines were double winners for the men in a 156-85 victory over Dartmouth last season. Like the Tiger women, the men have gotten balanced effort throughout the roster, though the early success of the Class of 2015 has been especially impressive.

Sunday will be Senior Day for Dartmouth, which competes both Friday and Saturday in the Dartmouth Invitational. The Dartmouth women will enter Sunday's dual meet with a 5-2 record, while the men are 2-3.
