Women

Conference championship: April 19-21, The Ridge at Back Brook, Ringoes, N.J.

Defending champion: Princeton

Team rankings: Princeton (80), Harvard (88), Penn (108), Brown (148), Dartmouth (168), Yale (180), Columbia (186)

Midseason All-Conference team: Ami Gianchandani, Yale (91); Elizabeth Wang, Harvard (97); Maya Walton, Princeton (128); Emma Zhao, Princeton (199); Mary Shin, Penn (245)

What to expect: The Tigers are two-time defending champions, but Harvard is right there especially with highly touted freshman Elizabeth Wang in tow. It’s close, but with Princeton’s formidable top two, I lean toward a three-peat.

Pick to win: Princeton
