On November 24, 1979, the Princeton Tigers played their first varsity game against the University of Pennsylvania. In winter of 1982, Princeton would snap the Cornell Big Red women's ice hockey program's string of six straight Ivy League titles.
In 1987, Mollie Marcoux joined the Princeton Tigers. In her four years with the Tigers, Marcoux would gain eight letters in athletics (in hockey and soccer) and four All-Ivy selections in hockey. Former Princeton player and assistant coach Laura Halldorson would coach the Minnesota Golden Gophers women's ice hockey program to the 2004 NCAA title.
On February 26, 2010, Princeton would be part of NCAA ice hockey history. With a 5-1 loss to the Harvard Crimson women's ice hockey program, Harvard coach Katey Stone became women's college hockey's all-time winningest coach, surpassing former Princeton player and Minnesota head coach Laura Halldorson. 
On December 31, 2010, Rachel Weber made 24 saves as the Tigers upset the fifth ranked Boston College Eagles by a 3-0 margin. It was Weber’s third shutout in four games and her goals against average for the season was lowered to 1.93 In three games played between January 3 and 8, 2011, Rachel Weber earned three victories and allowed only one goal. On January 3, she defeated Quinnipiac by a 3-0 tally and shutout Clarkson by a 2-0 score on January 7. The following day, she gave up her only goal of the week in a 3-1 win over St. Lawrence. Her shutout streak spanned six games and lasted 289:43. She is now the owner of the longest shutout streak in ECAC history and the fourth longest in NCAA Division I since the 2000-01 season.
