On the eve of their Ivy openers, squash coaches Gail Ramsay and Sean Wilkinson talk about their teams, the early season and this key weekend on the latest edition of TigerCast.
Ramsay is the head coach of the reigning Ivy League champion women's team, which is 4-0 on the season and will take on reigning national champion Harvard Saturday at noon. While there are several returning starters from the 2013 championship team, a new face now stands atop the ladder. Ramsay discusses freshman Maria Elena Ubina, as well as senior No. 2 Libby Eyre and the experience gained from last season's title.
Wilkinson is in his first year as head coach of the Princeton men, which have gone 2-2 with a pair of road losses at nationally ranked teams. The Tigers continue their brutal road schedule this weekend when they head to No. 2 Harvard for a 2 pm showdown. The two teams shared the Ivy League title last season, though Princeton won the head-to-head showdown 5-4. Wilkinson talks about his talented junior duo atop the lineup and looks ahead to the progress he believes his team can make as the Ivy season begins.
