Ivy League Round-Robin Central | TigerCast with Zoltan Dudas

The Princeton fencing teams will head for Brown this weekend with the Ivy League title at stake.

Schedule: Saturday will put Princeton against Cornell (11 a.m., women only), Harvard (1:15 p.m.), Yale (2:45 p.m.) and Brown (4:15 p.m.). Sunday, Princeton will face Penn (10 a.m.) and Columbia (1:45 p.m.).

Rankings: New NCAA rankings came out Thursday. All seven Ivy women's and six men's teams were either included in the top 10 or received votes. Here are the Ivies in the rankings:
Women: 1. Princeton, 3. Harvard, 5. Columbia, 7. Penn, Brown (RV), Cornell (RV), Yale (RV). Men: 1. Columbia, 5. Princeton, 6. Harvard, 7. Penn, Brown (RV), Yale (RV).

All-Ivy: Princeton has eight women and two men on its rosters who have earned All-Ivy League honors in their careers.
Men: Robert Stone (Second-team, 2012), Michael Dudey (First-team, 2013; Most Outstanding Performer, 2013; Most Outstanding Rookie, 2013).
Women: Susannah Scanlan (First-team, 2009, 2010), Eve Levin (Second-team, 2011, 2013); Hyun-Kyung Yuh (Second-team, 2011); Diamond Wheeler (Second-team, 2011; First-team, 2013); Katharine Holmes (First-team, 2012; Second-team, 2013); Ambika Singh (First-team, 2012; Second-team, 2013; Most Outstanding Performer, 2012; Most Outstanding Rookie, 2012); Anna Van Brummen (First-team, 2013); Gracie Stone (First-team, 2013; Most Outstanding Rookie, 2013).

Among the All-Ivy honors, Princeton swept all four Most Outstanding honors last year, with epeeis Michael Dudey winning both Most Outstanding Rookie and Most Outstanding Performer, and saberist sisters Eliza Stone '13 and Gracie Stone sweeping the women's awards. Princeton also won both women's honors in 2012, with foilist Ambika Singh getting the sweep.

Recent Performances: Princeton's women are working on a four-year run of Ivy titles, looking for a fifth this year. The only streak as long or longer belongs to Penn, which won six in a row from 1983-88, before Princeton's program gained varsity status. The Tiger men tied for second last year after winning for the second time in three years in 2012. The men's team's title in 2010 was its first since 2001.

Streak: Princeton's women have won 41 straight dual matches dating back to last February. They would extend that streak to 47 with a sweep this weekend.

Up Next:
The Ivy League meet begins the championship portion of the season. The NCAA Regional will take place March 8 at Lafayette, and the NCAA Championships will run March 20-23 at Ohio State.
