March 28 TigerCast: NCAA champion Eliza Stone, Lisa Sweeney & Michael Dye
The final March TigerCast focuses on one champion recently crowned and two teams hoping to make big moves in their league races this weekend.
Eliza Stone helped lead the Princeton fencing team to its first NCAA championship last weekend. Besides winning the team title in her senior season, Stone also made a dramatic comeback in her final collegiate match to win the NCAA saber title. Stone talks about this championship weekend, an opportunity to win a team title with her two younger siblings and an amazing gift from a teammate that allowed her the chance to win the title.
Lisa Sweeney is in her first season as the Princeton softball coach, and she will lead the Tigers into their Ivy League opener Saturday at 12:30 against Brown. The Tigers are 14-10 on the season and have gotten impressive contributions throughout their roster both offensively and on the mound. Sweeney shares her thoughts on both the impressive youth and a pair of senior pitchers who are hoping to end their Tiger careers with a championship run.
Michael Dye is a reigning All-East starter and a member of the 2010 Princeton squad that reached the EIVA championship match. Now a senior captain, he will lead Princeton into a huge homestand this week, which includes a showdown with 13th-ranked Penn State Friday night at 7. Dye looks at the team's progress over the last two years and the importance of an energized Dillon Gym, which he expects to see when the Nittany Lions arrive.
