Both the Princeton and Harvard women's squash teams ended the 2012-13 season with championships. The two will meet Saturday at noon in a crucial Ivy League showdown for both in Boston.

Princeton, the reigning Ivy League champion, stunned the top-ranked Crimson with a come-from-behind 5-4 win at the Jadwin Squash Courts last season. Rachel Leizman, playing No. 4, rallied from match ball down to secure a 3-2 win that evened the team score, and Alex Sawin finished the job at the No. 7 spot to finish off the 5-4 thriller.

That match ignited a perfect run through a tough Ivy League schedule, which earned Princeton its sixth league title. The Crimson bounced back during the Howe Cup, though, to repeat as team national champion.

Both teams would love to sweep those championships this season. Neither can do anything about the Howe Cup, which will be held Feb. 21-23 at the Jadwin Courts, but both can grab the inside track in the Ivy League race with a win Saturday.

Both teams are 4-0 on the season, and neither has lost an individual match throughout the season. The Tigers have several familiar faces in the lineup, though they have been led by a standout freshman in Maria Elena Ubina. The former 2012 U.S. National Team selection is unbeaten for the Tigers, while classmate Alexandra Toth has been a strong addition at the bottom of the lineup.

The Tigers have had multiple members of every class start for them this season, including senior Libby Eyre, a two-time All-America who has been dominant at No. 2.

Following the Harvard match, Princeton will head to Hanover, N.H., to take on Dartmouth Sunday at noon.
