It was the final set of the final match of the final season in Cathryn Quinn's impressive Princeton career, and she simply wasn't going to leave Dillon Gym with a loss. She dominated the fifth set to lead the Tigers to a 3-2 win over Columbia to clinch sole possession of second place in the Ivy League standings.

Quinn was impressive throughout the match, recording 23 kills and three blocks in the 25-22, 20-25, 25-18, 20-25, 15-6 victory. But she definitely saved her best for last; in the final-set sprint, she recorded five kills in nine swings, added two blocks and didn't have an error to lead the Tigers to a dominant performance.

While Quinn was one of three seniors honored before the match, along with classmates Hillary Ford and Michaela Venuti, it would take a full team effort to hold off Columbia. Junior Lydia Rudnick recorded 27 kills and 17 digs, while Ford added 18 digs. Freshman Nicole Kincade had the best match of her season, recording 15 kills and nine blocks while hitting .281. Classmate Ginny Willis recorded 65 assists and 13 digs, while sophomore Chelsea Parker added 13 digs.

Freshmen Sarah Hanna and Francie Jenkins combined for nine kills in the win, which ends the first season under head coach Sabrina King with an 18-8 overall record and an 11-3 Ivy mark.

"I'm so proud of my seniors," said King. "They showed leadership and heart, and they gave a roadmap for the freshmen. This is a great way to end the season."
