Princeton trying to end Cornell’s wrestling reign in Ivy
February 07, 2019


PRINCETON, N.J. - Coach Chris Ayres has taken Princeton from possibly the worst Division I wrestling program to a national ranking.

His goals are lofty and the next one within reach is winning the Ivy League title.

While it may not sound lofty, it is. To win, the No. 19 Tigers will have to knock off No. 10 Cornell. The Big Red have won the last 16 league titles under coach Rob Koll, the longest-running streak by any school in any sport in conference history. They are 3-0 in the league this season and now have won 86 straight Ivy matches dating to the 2001-02 season.

Ayres isn't shy when asked what his team must do to win against Cornell on Saturday.
