PRINCETON (1/4/12) -- Rising men's water polo seniors Jack Ruth and Billy Tifft have been named team co-captains for the 2012 season. The pair will lead a group of 23 returning players as the Tigers will look to repeat as Eastern champions.

"I am very happy for Billy and Jack," said Princeton Head Coach Luis Nicolao. "I am sure they will be great leaders in and out of the pool, we are all looking forward to a promising 2012 season."

Tifft and Ruth are among five current juniors on the team that will be seniors during the 2012 season. Tifft, primarily a defender, has played in 87 games and has 25 career goals and 20 assists. Ruth has played in 81 games and has 27 collegiate goals, 25 steals and 31 drawn ejections.

The 2011 Tigers won Princeton's fourth Eastern Championship and finished third at the NCAA Championships for the second time in the last three seasons. Princeton finished the year 22-10 overall and won the Eastern title after falling in the Southern Championship game.
