With some hard-fought victories, including one game that reached the 20-point mark, the fifth-ranked Princeton women’s squash team defeated Cornell 8-1 to reach the .500 mark in Ivy League play.

The Tigers, who take on fourth-ranked Trinity Saturday, can move above the league .500 mark Sunday when they travel to New York City to take on Columbia.

Princeton grabbed a 3-0 lead after the first shift, though there were a couple of tense moments. Sophomore Alex Sawin was dominant at No. 6, dropping only eight points in her victory. At No. 9, junior Casey Cortes overcame a third-game loss to score a 3-1 win.

And then there was the match at No. 3, where Princeton freshman Nicole Bunyan played more points in her first game than teammate Sawin did in her entire match. She needed to score 20 just to secure the first game, and then dropped an 11-8 second-game loss. She came back with wins of 11-4 and 11-9 to give Princeton the 3-0 lead.

Princeton built the lead to 6-0 with a sweep in the second shift. Sophomore Libby Eyre used wins of 13-11 and 14-12 to grab a win at No. 2, and Lexi Saunders dropped only nine points to win at No. 5. Alex Lunt needed to battle in the third game for her 3-0 win at No. 8.

Junior Julie Cerullo kept up her strong season with a 3-0 win at No. 1, while senior co-captain Katie Giovinazzo started her final weekend at Jadwin with a 3-0 win at No. 4. Freshman Hallie Dewey had the lone setback at the No. 7 position, though all three games were close.
