The No. 9 Princeton women’s water polo team improved to 10-0 after sweeping the MAAC/CWPA Crossover in Cambridge, Mass. The Tigers closed the tournament with a 13-5 victory versus Iona Sunday to go 3-0 over the weekend.

Molly McBee led Princeton with four goals and four assists, both team highs, along with a pair of steals.

Kimi Klein, Diana Murphy and Katie Rigler netted twice, and Jessie Holechek had two steals, two steals and a goal.

Ashleigh Johnson collected nine saves and tallied three steals in the cage, as she made several leaping stops throughout the afternoon contest.

Johnson shutout Iona over the second half and the Tigers rattled off six more goals.
