COMPLETE RESULTS

In her final competitive swims at DeNunzio Pool, Princeton senior Lisa Boyce won two individual events and one relay, though those wouldn't be enough to help the Tigers win their regular season finale over Columbia. The Lions continued their perfect Ivy League dual season with a 165-131 win over Princeton Friday afternoon.

Boyce, a seven-time Ivy League individual champion, won the 50 free in 23.15, and she followed with a 100 free win in 50.87. She defeated freshman teammate Katie Diller (51.41) in the 100, and both teamed with sophomore Nikki Larson and freshman Olivia Chan to win the 200 free relay in 1:34.23. That time topped the field by more than a full second, and assured Boyce to be a winner in her final home event.

Larson led off the 200 free relay, and she was also Princeton's first individual winner of the day. The sophomore, who swept the fly events during the H-Y-P meet last weekend, won the 200 free in 1:50.80.

Princeton opened the meet with a third-place finish in the 200 medley, as Chan teamed with sophomores Sada Stewart and Morgan Karetnick, as well as senior Laura Slater, for a time of 1:44.50.

The freshman duo of Rebecca Fleming (10:11.85) and Isabel Shipman (10:12.18) went 3-4 in the 1000, while Boyce (54.22) and Stewart (56.70) were both Top 4 finishers in the 100 back. Chan went 1:07.00 for fourth in the 100 breast, while sophomore Beverly Nguyen finished third in the 200 fly in 2:02.07. Stewart took fourth in the 200 back (2:05.12), while Chan took third in the 200 breast (2:19.45).

The first freshman winner of the day was Fleming, who edged out Columbia's Mallory McKeon to win the 500 free in 4:57.03. Shipman added another fourth-place finish in 5:00.74. Larson followed with a third-place finish in the 100 fly (55.01), while Nguyen took third in the 200 IM in 2:06.01.

The Tigers did have very strong showings off the boards Friday afternoon, starting with a win from freshman Caitlin Chambers on the 3-meter board. Chambers won with 304.43 points, while senior Randi Brown took second with 270.31 points. In the 1-meter event, sophomore Helen Zitkovsky took the win with 257.09 points, while Chambers finished second with 249.67 points.

Princeton, the reigning Ivy League champion, finished its regular season with a 4-3 league mark, but it will now focus all attention on the biggest weekend of the season. Winners of 11 of the last 14 league titles, the Tigers will head to Providence in two weeks for the 2014 Ivy League Championships.
