IVY LEAGUE RELEASE

PRINCETON, N.J. – Following an outstanding start to Ivy League competition that included two complete-game victories, junior pitcher Taylor Cabe has been recognized as the Ivy League Pitcher of the Week, announced by the league office Tuesday.

Cabe's first conference start of the season came against Cornell last Friday when she held the Big Red to just five hits and one run as part of a 9-1 victory. The next day, Cabe improved on that mark against Princeton, shutting the Tigers out over seven innings, while racking up a career-best seven strikeouts.

Over her 14 innings of work, Cabe posted a 0.50 ERA and held opposing hitters to a .192 average. On the season, she is 8-3 with a team-low 2.85 ERA and four complete games.

The honor is the first of Cabe's career and Harvard's first Pitcher of the Week accolade since Laura Ricciardone '15 won the award twice last year (March 24, April 7). This is the fifth time this season Harvard has earned one of the conference's weekly awards, as Rhianna Rich and Meagan Lantz (twice) have been named Rookie of the Week and Haley Davis previously earned Player of the Week.

Harvard continues Ivy League competition this weekend, hosting Columbia and Penn.
