As both prepare for Ivy League home weekends, juniors Lindsay Graff (women's tennis) and Casey Ward (men's lightweight rowing) join the latest edition of TigerCast.
Graff is the No. 1 player for the women's tennis team, which has raced out to a 3-0 start in the Ivy League and will host both Harvard and Dartmouth this weekend. Graff posted the winning point in Princeton's 4-3 victory over reigning Ivy League champion Yale, and she talks about dealing with that pressure, as well as facing these crucial upcoming matches and playing for a former NCAA champion in head coach Laura Granville.
Ward has already experienced some highs and lows during his junior year, and the team is still more than a month away from the championship season. While the Tigers dropped a thriller to Columbia last weekend by .1 of a second, Princeton showed its early potential by winning the Head of the Charles last fall. Ward looks back at both, while also looking ahead to the rest of the season.
