In another dominating offensive outing for the No. 18 Princeton women's water polo team, the Tigers went 3-0 in day one action at the CWPA/MAAC Crossover. Princeton (13-0 overall, 1-0 Southern) defeated Iona, 13-5, and Siena, 11-4, and concluded the day with a 12-1 victory over Wagner to extend its winning ways.

Princeton jumped out early on Iona, 6-1, over the first two quarters of action. Its early dominance prevented the Gaels from finding an offensive surge in the third and fourth quarters, as the Tigers closed out the game riding a 7-4 run. Defensively, Kristen Ward tallied eight saves and Katlin Poladian saw minutes in the fourth quarter and had a save.

In game two versus Siena, Princeton used another quick offensive start to earn their 11th win of the year. The Tigers took a 5-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, adding a 6-4 run to close out action. Jessie Holechek and Ashley Hatcher led the offensive attack with three goals apiece, while goalie Poladian posted eight saves in 32 minutes of work.

The Tigers wrapped up the day with their most dominating victory of the season versus Wagner. Princeton scored seven goals in the first quarter, while only allowing the Seahawks one shot on goal. In the second quarter, goalie Ward's shutout was broken up, as Wagner added their lone goal, but the Tigers would conclude the game with four goals over the final two quarters of play.

The freshmen tandem of Hatcher and Holechek had a standout day, headlining the Tigers' offensive efforts. Hatcher tallied six goals, while Holechek had five goals and an assist. Classmate Camille Hooks also had a solid day of work, posting nine steals on the day.

In goal, Ward had 19 saves and Poladian tallied nine.

The Tigers will host Villanova tomorrow, Sunday, Feb. 26 at 4:30 p.m. to conclude tournament action.
