Nov. 29 TigerCast: Kristen Holmes-Winn, Julia Reinprecht and Kelly Cooke
The Nov. 29 edition of TigerCast looks back at the NCAA field hockey championship with head coach Kristen Holmes-Winn and junior All-America Julia Reinprecht, and it looks ahead to a key women's ice hockey weekend with leading goal scorer Kelly Cooke.
Holmes-Winn just completed her 10th season at Princeton with the most magical ending of all, a 3-2 win over North Carolina in the 2012 NCAA championship game. With nine Ivy League titles and eight trips to the NCAA tournament already on her résumé, she guided Princeton to the one win it had yet to achieve in the proud program history.
Reinprecht just completed a wild six-month journey of field hockey; from a member of the U.S. team in the London Games to a leading defensive player for Princeton's championship squad, Reinprecht has played the sport at the highest level and shared the journey with her older sister Katie. Julia Reinprecht talks about the journey, as well as the culmination against North Carolina.
Cooke is the leading goal scorer for a women's team that is playing its best ice hockey of the year, including a win last Saturday over a Top 10 opponent in Ohio State. She discusses the improvements and looks ahead at a key home weekend upcoming against Union and Rensselaer.
