With its three seniors posting big numbers, the Princeton women's volleyball team opened their final home weekend in impressive fashion Friday night with a 3-0 victory over Cornell.

One day before Senior Night in Dillon Gym, head coach Sabrina King watched the trio of Hillary Ford, Cathryn Quinn and Michaela Venuti play key roles in the 25-16, 25-21, 25-19 win over the Big Red. Ford led the team with 23 digs, while Venuti led the team with 41 assists. Quinn recorded 12 kills and a block while hitting .304 in the win.

Princeton hit .250 as a team, thanks in large part to a strong night from junior Lydia Rudnick, who had 13 kills and only one error (.400). The freshman duo of Sarah Hanna and Nicole Kincade combined for 15 kills with only three errors, and Kincade added a team-best five blocks. Junior Jennifer Palmquist added three blocks, while sophomore Chelsea Parker had two kills, six blocks and a crucial service run late in the third set, when Cornell was pushing to extend the match.

Princeton will now play for sole possession of second place Saturday against Columbia, which defeated Princeton 3-0 at Levien Gym earlier this season. Yale clinched the outright title and automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament with a 3-0 victory at Harvard.
