This victory clinched their 11th Ivy League title in program history, and second in the last six years which has head coach Brett Boretti and the rest of the program excited for the upcoming 2014 season. With the competitive nature of the Ivy League continuously growing, 2014 promises to showcase great talent on the diamond. Continue reading
