Tony Casey of FloTrack recently caught up with Heps’ champion Alex Banfich of Princeton and talked about the TIgers’ goals heading into tomorrow’s NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional at Penn State.
Banfich had this to say:
Villanova’s got a lot of talent on that team, obviously. So, I don’t think we’re looking to compete with them. I don’t know that it’s our goal to beat them at this point. We aren’t quite that deep. We’re looking at Georgetown, as we were pretty close to them at the pre-regional meet—the Spiked Shoe Invitational, I think it was. We’re looking at them as our main competition and we’d love to beat Penn State going into this. I think that’s where we’re at, looking at that number two or number three spot. Number two would obviously be our main goal, but we’re hoping that number three could get us through with some at-large points with our ranking right now.
