PRINCETON, N.J. -- Ivy League softball teams will ramp up the schedule to full throttle this week with games from coast-to-coast. 

Penn and Yale resume play in Florida today. The Quakers, who went 1-4 over the weekend in the Sunshine State, will face Seton Hall and Quinnipiac. The Bulldogs (1-2), who had last week off, will face Central Michigan and South Florida. 

Columbia (1-6) comes back from a 12-day layoff and will make a trip out to Long Island for Hofstra's tournament this weekend, opening play Friday morning against Hartford. Dartmouth (2-7) will be one of three Ivies heading to California. The Big Green will play Monmouth in Santa Barbara on Friday. 

Princeton (1-1) and Harvard (6-4) are also making trips to California. The Tigers, who split a twinbill with Hartford last weekend, will spend the weekend at San Jose State while the Crimson head to San Diego State. Harvard hasn't played since winning LSU's tournament back on March 2.
