Nov. 19 TigerCast: Kendall Peterkin, Luis Nicolao & Mitch Henderson
Two teams looking to advance to the NCAA Championships and one paying tribute to its glorious past are featured on the Nov. 19 edition of TigerCast.
Senior Kendall Peterkin is a multiple-time All-Ivy honoree who helped the Princeton women's volleyball team on a thrilling run to the 2015 Ivy League championship. Peterkin was one of the Tigers' top hitters during the team's run from an 0-3 start to a 7-0 finish and the league co-championship. She reflects on the run and talks about Friday's playoff match at Harvard for a spot in the NCAA tournament.
Luis Nicolao has led the men's water polo team to three of the last four CWPA tournament finals, but losses in the last two finals have energized the Tigers for this coming weekend. The Tigers are the top seed from the southern draw, and will open play Friday at 4:40 in the quarterfinal round. Nicolao talks about the transition from last year to this year and brings up a comparison to last year's Duke men's basketball team that he hopes can bring similar success to his team this weekend.
Mitch Henderson helped the Princeton men's basketball team to one of its most historic wins ever, the 1996 NCAA tournament win over UCLA. Several other historic Princeton wins occurred before he was born, and they took place in Dillon Gym. Henderson will lead his Tigers back to Dillon Gym Saturday night at 9 pm when they take on St. Peter's in the second game of the season. He talks about how the night came together, as well as his team's strong play in the opener at Rider.
