Before heading to their respective championship events this weekend, women's open senior standout Heidi Robbins and men's heavyweight captain Michael Evans join the latest edition of TigerCast.
Robbins was part of the 2011 Ivy League and NCAA championship varsity eight, and she will be looking to lead the Tigers to their 10th Ivy title when Princeton heads to the Ivy League Championships this weekend on Cooper River in Pennsauken, N.J. The Tigers are the top seed in a wide open field, where every Ivy boat has at least one loss to a fellow league member.
Evans is the captain for a heavyweight eight that earned the fourth seed for Sunday's Eastern Sprints on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, Mass. Princeton had tight losses to the last two Ivy League champions, though top-seeded Harvard will come into the weekend as the league favorite. Sprints has been historically unpredictable, and Evans feels good about the potential for the heavyweight eight to compete for their sixth league title.
TigerCast, presented by PNC Bank, is the official podcast of Princeton Athletics. Previous episodes of TigerCast can be downloaded for free anytime at GoPrincetonTigers.com.
