WASHINGTON - The No. 14/15 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (1-1) will travel to Princeton University (1-1) on Saturday for a 3 p.m., matinee at Sherrerd Field against the No. 19/18 Tigers. The Hoyas are looking to bounce back from a tough loss at No. 20/19 Towson University last weekend.

The squad suffered a tough 14-10 loss last weekend at Towson. The Tigers took an early 6-0 lead and it was too much for the Hoyas to overcome.
