PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Princeton continued its dominance of the Ivy League Women's Fencing Round-Robin by winning its fifth consecutive round-robin championship on Sunday and maintaining its undefeated season in the process. 

The Tigers, ranked No. 1 in the nation in the USFCA, defeated Penn and Columbia to complete a 6-0 weekend and run their record to 27-0 on the season. The Tigers have now won 31 consecutive matches in Ivy League Round-Robin action. Dating back to last year, Princeton has won 47 straight dual matches. 

The title was Princeton's eighth overall and seventh outright crown. 

When the day began, all eyes had been set on the potential round 7 showdown between Columbia and Princeton, which both entered the day undefeated. However, the Lions stumbled to open the day, falling to Harvard, 14-13. Simultaneously, Princeton was making quick work of Penn in a 25-2 win. 

The Lions still had a chance to play the role of spoiler and possible forge a three-way tie for the title with a win in the final round. But the Tigers would have none of that, clinching the match midway through on the way to a 19-8 win. 

Diamond Wheeler went 16-2 for the Tigers in women's saber, earning first-team All-Ivy honors. Ambika Singh was also first-team All-Ivy after going 12-2 in foil. Anna Van Brummen and Katharine Holmes finished 1-2 in epee, going 13-1 and 15-2, respectively, to earn first-team All-Ivy.

Harvard freshman Adrienne Jarocki was voted the Most Outstanding Performer and Most Outstanding Rookie Performer after going 18-0 in saber, also earning her first-team All-Ivy honors. She was a big part in Harvard's second place finish for the weekend as Harvard's saber group went 47-7 in the six duals. 

Also earning first-team All-Ivy honors were Columbia's Margaret Lu and Sara Taffel and Cornell's Vicky Wines.
