Box Score

Princeton won its third-straight five-set game to open the Ivy League slate and improve to a perfect 3-0 in league play when it defeated Dartmouth 3-2 on Saturday afternoon at Dillon Gymnasium.

The teams alternated wins with Princeton taking the opening games 25-19 and Dartmouth rebounding with a 25-20 win in the second. Princeton took the third game 25-17 but a 5-1 start to the fourth propelled Dartmouth to a 25-15 win and set up the fifth and decisive game.

Princeton trailed in the fifth set 4-2 but drew even and a three-point run from 5-5 to 8-5 gave Princeton a lead it would hold to the finish. All three points in the run came on kills from Cathryn Quinn as she recorded five kills for the Tigers in the fifth game. Princeton scored the final three points of the game to win it, clinching victory on Lydia Rudnick's solo block.

The victory improves Princeton to 10-5 overall and 3-0 in the Ivy League while Dartmouth falls to 9-5, 1-2. The Tigers will be in a first-place tie in the Ivy standings with the winner of Saturday's match between Columbia and Yale.

Quinn led the Tigers with 22 kills and four errors for a .391 hitting percentage, while Nicole Kincade had 14 kills, two errors and a .414 percentage. She added a team-high seven blocks. Ginny Willis paced the Princeton offense with 58 assists.
