For the second straight week, the Princeton women's volleyball team has the Ivy League Rookie of the Week. One week after classmate Ginny Willis took the honor after leading Princeton to a thriller over Penn, middle Nicole Kincade has earned the honor after five-set wins against both Harvard and Dartmouth.

Kincade, from Franklin Hills, N.J., had her best weekend of the season with 23 kills and 13 assisted blocks for a total of 29.5 points in Princeton's Ivy sweep of Harvard and Dartmouth. The wins kept Princeton in a first-place tie with Yale, though both teams are facing challenging road weekends upcoming.

Kincade converted nine kills and assisted on six blocks, adding three assists, in the Tigers' five-set over the Crimson to start the weekend. In the 3-2 win over the Big Green, she recorded career highs in both kills (14) and blocks (7).

"Nicole played great this past weekend," head coach Sabrina King said. "She has such a steep learning curve that I know we will see great things from her this year and in the next four years."

Despite missing an early portion of the season with injury, Kincade has been a key part to the Tigers' quick start in Ivy play. She ranks second on the team in blocks (1.03) and has started in all three victories.

Kincade is one of three freshmen who has had big impacts on the young season. Willis leads the team with 9.56 assists per set and has been Princeton's setter in all three Ivy matches, while outside Sarah Hanna ranks ninth in the Ivy League with 2.72 kills per set; she was especially strong in the 3-2 win over Harvard with 16 kills and only one error.

Princeton heads to New York this weekend for matches against both Columbia (Friday, 7) and Cornell (Saturday, 5).
