Reigning Ivy League Pitcher of the Year Zak Hermans and heavyweight rowing coach Greg Hughes chat about upcoming Ivy League home weekends on the latest edition of TigerCast.
Hermans, also the reigning Pitcher of the Week, will lead the baseball team into a crucial four-game set with Columbia this weekend at Clarke Field. The Tigers are currently one game back of Columbia in the divisional race, meaning a three-win weekend would give Princeton control of its own destiny during the four-game set with Cornell next week. Hermans talks about the team's turnaround in Ivy play and his expectations for the weekend.
Hughes is in his fourth season as the Princeton head coach, and he will lead the Tigers into the Compton Cup weekend against No. 2 Harvard. Princeton is 5-0 on the season and is ranked fifth nationally, but it hasn't defeated the Crimson since 2006. Hughes talks about the progress of the squad, the inclusion of freshmen and the challenges upcoming for a Princeton squad that will see a bevy of Top-10 teams in the next three weeks.
