REPEAT OFFENDERS: Princeton University womens squash tri-captains, from left, Margaret Kent, Casey Riley, and Carly Grabowksi celebrate after the second-seeded Tigers won the Howe Cup national title with a 6-3 win over No. 1 Penn. It was the second straight national title for Princeton, which finished the season with an 11-2 record.
Carly Grabowski harbored plenty of doubts as she headed into her senior season with the Princeton University womens squash team.
After her left knee swelled up like a grapefruit this past November, Grabowski, a Princeton resident and Lawrenceville School alum, was sidelined.
In addition to her individual issues, Grabowski wasnt sure how the team would fare in the wake of the graduation of four players from the 2006-07 team which went undefeated and won the national title.
It looked like last Saturday was destined to be Meg Cowhers night.

We were confident that we were the better team, said OBrien. We thought we would come out with a win.
Travis Potts was a picture of frustration when the Hun School boys hockey team lost to Princeton Day School this past December.
