Women's lacrosse standout goalie Erin Tochihara and Sprints-bound rowers Blake Parsons (men's heavyweight) and Caroline Clark (women's lightweight) join the latest edition of TigerCast.

Tochihara has led Princeton on an amazing three-week journey that will culminate Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Tigers' return to the NCAA tournament. With two wins over Ivy power Penn, a dominant victory over nationally ranked Penn State and a gutsy win over Harvard in the Ivy tournament final, Princeton clinched the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Tochihara, whose late heroics in the Ivy semifinal against Penn gave Princeton the shot in the Ivy final, talks about the wild ride and how Princeton has been able to peak at the right time.

Parsons is a senior heavyweight who has been part of an upperclassman group that brought Princeton from a one-win season in 2009 to a one-loss season in 2011. Princeton has been ranked as high as fourth throughout the season and enters Sunday's EARC Championships as the second seed, behind only defending champion Harvard. The Tigers lost a very close race to the Crimson earlier this season, and Parsons talks about that race and how Princeton might be able to turn that result around this weekend.

Clark is part of a large group of seniors on the women's lightweight crew, which is looking to get Princeton back to the top of the EAWRC Championships for the first time since 2003. Princeton, which placed second at Easterns last year, has earned its top ranking in 2011 with dominant wins over some of the national powers, including both Wisconsin and Stanford. Clark knows that Sunday's opponents will be going for Princeton, but she also knows that her team, and in particular her classmates, have worked very hard for the opportunity being presented Sunday.
