Coach Cashman-McSween: "Everyone is really looking forward to Princeton because it’s a new tournament for all. Coaches included. It’s always an honor whenever we get to tee it up with the Ivy League teams and see such beautiful campuses. The competition this week is as strong as we will see and it’s going to be a great challenge. It will be a fun week for everyone!"
