The Princeton fencing teams will head to Harvard to compete for the Ivy League championship this weekend with both the men's and women's teams aiming to defend their titles.

The Ivy League's live blog from the event will be available here.

The men's team has won twice in the last three years, in 2010 and 2012, with the 2010 title ending a 10-year drought. The Tiger men return three of their four All-Ivy League selections from last year, including first-team epeeists Edward Kelley and Jonathan Yergler and second-team saberist Robert Stone.

The women's team, winner of three straight Ivy League titles, will aim to become the first team since Penn from 1983-88 to win more than three straight titles. All four first-team All-Ivy League picks from a year ago return for the Tigers, including epeeists Katharine Holmes and Hannah Safford, foilist Ambika Singh and saberist Eliza Stone. Second-team epeeist Joanna Cichomski also returns.

Along with their chase for the Ivy League title, the women will put their 19-match Ivy League winning streak on the line, as the Tigers haven't lost in the Ivy League round-robin event since the penultimate match of the 2009 Ivy meet.

Here is Princeton's schedule for the weekend at Harvard:
Saturday, 11 a.m.: vs. Cornell (women only)
Saturday, 1:15 p.m.: vs. Brown
Saturday, 2:45 p.m.: vs. Penn
Saturday, 4:15 p.m.: vs. Yale
Sunday, 10 a.m.: vs. Columbia
Sunday, 11:30 a.m.: vs. Harvard

Princeton's day will end earlier than the other six Ivy programs, all of whom will have their last bouts beginning at 1:45 p.m. Sunday with the awards ceremony set for 3:30 p.m.
