It's been more than two weeks since the Princeton women's squash team knocked off the reigning national champion and assumed the top spot in the CSA team rankings. The Tigers' first match as the hunted comes Wednesday night against one of its top rivals.

Princeton will host the Penn Quakers Wednesday at 5 pm in the first match of a Jadwin doubleheader (the men will take on Penn at approximately 7:30). The match will be played in three shifts, and all three courts will be streamed live on GoPrincetonTigers.TV.

Princeton is currently ranked first nationally and is the only team in the top five without a loss. The Tigers defeated No. 2 Harvard with a wild rally, including a saved match ball at the No. 4 spot and a comeback from a 2-0 deficit at No. 8. For the season, the Tigers are 5-0 overall, 2-0 in the Ivy League.

Penn is currently ranked fourth nationally, and its lone loss was a tight 6-3 home match against Harvard. The Penn-Harvard competition included three matches that went five games, as well as three others that went four. Penn bounced back nicely last weekend, defeating Trinity 6-3 in a match that featured four five-game matches. The trio of Haidi Lala (No. 4), Pia Trikha (No. 5) and Camille Lanier (No. 8) earned wins against both the Crimson and Bantams.

This has grown into one of the top rivalries in the nation, though the Quakers have had the best of it in the regular season recently. Penn has won four of the last five meetings during the season, including a 6-3 win in Philadelphia last season; Princeton, however, has won four of the last five matches played in Jadwin Gym, including a 7-2 quarterfinal win during the 2011 Howe Cup.
