Changes to this weekend's schedule at the UMBC-Coppin State co-hosted tournament in Baltimore have been announced.

Princeton will face Seton Hall at 2:45 p.m. Saturday and Coppin State at 5 p.m. Saturday, with both games at Coppin State. Sunday, the Tigers will take on Mount St. Mary's at 8:30 a.m. and UMBC at 1 p.m. in two games at UMBC.

Princeton has never faced Coppin State and has short histories with two of the other three teams. Princeton split two games with Mount St. Mary's at a Maryland-hosted tournament in 2010 and lost 7-2 at UMBC a year ago. The Tigers are 23-10 all-time against Seton Hall, restarting the series last year with a split doubleheader at '95 Field. Prior to that, the Tigers and Pirates hadn't played since 2006.

Princeton began its season with a 3-2 record at the University of North Florida's tournament last weekend, getting wins over St. Bonaventure and Delaware State twice, along with two losses to a North Florida team that ended the weekend at 19-4 and on an 11-game win streak. Alyssa Schmidt took home Ivy League Player of the Week honors after getting a team-high 10 hits and averaging .526 at the plate. Shanna Christian was Ivy League Pitcher of the Week and Rookie of the Week after throwing 9 1/3 scoreless, one-hit innings over two games.

Seton Hall enters the weekend at 6-6, hitting .280 as a team and carrying a 4.03 staff ERA. Danielle DeStaso is hitting .486 with two of the team's eight home runs and is also the team's top pitcher with a 7-2 record and 2.83 ERA.

Coppin State is 5-1, hitting .379 as a team with a 3.15 ERA. Melli Richardson is the team's most-used pitcher, accruing a 3-1 record and 3.44 ERA, while Danielle Smith leads the team in hits with 14 and a .560 batting average.

Mount St. Mary's is 1-9 entering the weekend, hitting .247 as a team with a 4.79 ERA. Cat Clifford has a team-best nine hits and .321 batting average, while Nicole Pagano (1-5, 5.47) has thrown a team-high 32 innings.

UMBC is 4-11 entering the weekend, hitting .312 as a team while carrying a 6.02 ERA. Taylor Hall is hitting a team-best .452 with 19 hits so far, and Miranda Clark (1-3, 6.33) leads the team in innings at 24 1/3.

This weekend is the first of two for the Tigers at UMBC, as Princeton will spend its spring trip in the Mid-Atlantic area before Ivy League play begins at the end of the month.
