Princeton Completes Regular Season, Eyes Ivy Championship Weekend
The Columbia Lions won the meet 194-104 to cap its Senior Day, though Princeton remains confident in its march towards the Ivy League Championships, which will return to Denunzio Pool Feb. 28-March 2. After all, the Lions won this dual meet over Princeton last season, and the Tigers ultimately defeated Columbia by more than 250 points at the 2012 championship meet.
Altenburger continues her hot stretch, as she followed a win during H-Y-P weekend with a Friday victory in the 200 free. The Tiger senior took the event in 1:51.12, more than one second faster than anybody in the field.
Junior Randi Brown also got a victory in the one-meter diving competition, scoring 277.95 points to top Columbia's Alyssa Menz by more than four points.
Princeton will now focus on competing for its 21st Ivy League championship, as well as its 11th in a 14-year stretch. The last time the league championship meet was held at Denunzio was 2011, when the Tigers defeated Harvard by 66 points.
