PRINCETON, N.J. -- After several weeks on the road to open the season, Ivy League teams will settle in this weekend as League play begins for all eight schools.

Saturday will have all eight teams in action with Princeton hosting Brown, Cornell hosting Yale, Columbia hosting Harvard and Dartmouth visiting Penn. Sunday, Princeton hosts Yale and Cornell hosts Brown.

Penn enters League play with a six-game winning streak. The Quakers swept three straight doubleheaders from the Patriot League in the last 11 days, beating up on Holy Cross, Lafayette and Lehigh. The Quakers' slated twinbill at LaSalle for Tuesday was postponed due to wet grounds.

Princeton has won four in a row and is a League-best 14-8 thus far this season. The Tigers have beaten George Washington, Lafayette and Colgate in their current four-game streak.

Cornell is the top hitting team thus far with a team batting average of .315. Princeton looks equally potent with a .312 team batting average, .472 slugging percentage (tops in the League) and .382 on-base percentage (also tops in the Ivy).

Princeton's Alyssa Schmidt and Kayla Bose are 1-2 in the batting race thus far, hitting .431 and .429, respectively. Stephanie Thompson from Brown has picked up where she left off last season, hitting .424 with a .758 slugging percentage. Last week, she drew seven walks in five games to help her on-base percentage to a League-best .558.

In the circle, Dartmouth's Kristen Rumley leads the league in wins with nine. She also has the most strikeouts (86) and most innings pitched (83.2). Her opponent batting average is .219, ranking third in the league. Princeton freshman Shanna Christian leads in that department, holding the opposition to just .165 so far this season.
