CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman Taylor Docter lead the Crimson with 14 kills and sophomore Anne Carroll Ingersoll posted 12 kills and eight blocks to lead the Harvard women’s volleyball team to a 3-2 win over Princeton Friday night at the Malkin Athletic Center. The 25-23, 19-25, 16-25, 25-16, 16-14, victory for the Crimson (7-9, 3-2 Ivy) was the first win over the Tigers (3-12, 1-3 Ivy) since Oct. 26, 2002.

Sophomore Sandra Lynne Fryhofer joined Docter and Ingersoll in double-digit kills, while senior co-captain Chelsea Ono Horn and junior Mikaelle Comrie added nine apiece. Senior Lily Durwood registered 47 assists and surpassed the 3,000 career assist mark, only the third Crimson to accomplish that feat. Sophomore Christine Wu led all players with 34 digs.

The Crimson recorded a season-high 13 blocks in the match, while the Tigers had just two. The Tigers held the advantage in kills, 66-55, and digs, 99-98. Harvard’s 98 digs were also a season best.

Harvard hosts Penn tomorrow at 4 p.m. The Quakers are 4-0 in the league after a 3-1 victory in Hanover, N.H., tonight.
