Cornell was able to amass its most wins in a decade this past weekend, as the team split its final two games of the season against Princeton and Penn. “It was a great weekend for Cornell volleyball and a great one to end on,” said senior co-captain Alyssa Phelps. “We played one our best matches of the year Friday against Princeton and finished with a win against Penn to have one of the best records for Cornell in ten years. We finished with a .500 record, but given the last couple of years I am so proud and excited for this team.”
After being swept by Princeton (19-4, 13-1 Ivy League) earlier this season, the Red (12-12, 6-8 Ivy League) hoped to record a win this weekend against the Ivy League’s top seeded team. The opening sets certainly hinted that this match would not be another reproduction of the Red’s prior three set loss — each of the first four sets were a back and forth affair, with the second and third sets decided by a total margin of four points.
