On a wall in the tunnel connecting the home locker room to the tunnel, there is a collection of portraits of former Princeton players with NFL experience. During this weekend’s NFL draft, we will find out whether any recent graduates will earn a precious spot on that wall. The likeliest candidate is quarterback Chad Kanoff, who broke all-time University records in career passing yards, single season passing yards, and completion percentage in the 2017 season and has drawn the attention of scouts from several NFL teams. In any case, in anticipation of the most exciting days of the long football offseason, we have compiled a list of Princeton players who have heard their names called in the draft over the past few years.
After a 1–11 start to the season and an 0–4 start to EIVA play, the suggestion that men’s volleyball would make it all the way to the EIVA conference final might have seemed laughable. However, after the fourth-seeded Tigers upset top-seeded George Mason in four sets on Thursday’s semifinal, that’s exactly what happened. Unfortunately for the team, they would fall to Harvard in four sets in a clash of Ivy League rivals, coming up short in their bid to win their first EIVA title in 20 years.
Men’s baseball (8–16 overall, 5–4 Ivy) continued its Ivy League conference schedule this weekend with a three-game home series against Penn (11–19, 5–6–1). The team received an absolute gem of a pitching performance in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader from senior righthanded pitcher Ben Gross, who threw his first ever complete-game shutout in a 3–0 win, but still lost the series after falling 7–2 and 10–1 in the other two games.
The last time men’s volleyball faced off against George Mason, the team took two of the first three sets from the EIVA regular season champions before ultimately losing in five. This weekend, Princeton will have a chance to avenge the loss, with even higher stakes, as it prepares to play George Mason once again in the EIVA semifinals.
In its final home game of the season, Men’s Volleyball took George Mason University to five sets but were unable to close the deal, falling two sets to three.
Men’s hockey’s impressive season finally came to an end Saturday with a 4–2 defeat at the hands of Ohio State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Princeton had mounted a seven-game winning streak to win its first ECAC conference title since 2008 and qualify for the NCAA Tournament, but was unable to keep the run going against top-seeded Ohio State.
While most Princeton students were enjoying the first weekend of spring break, sophomore Declan Farmer was up to something a bit more exciting — leading Team USA to a gold medal in sled hockey at the 2018 Winter Paralympics. Farmer was the star in the dramatic 2–1 U.S. victory in the gold medal game against Canada, scoring the tying goal with just 38 seconds left in the third period and notching the game winner three and a half minutes into the sudden death overtime period.

No matter what Yale seemed to do on defense, there was a Tiger player with an answer. Whether it was Leslie Robinson down low, Carlie Littlefield from deep, or Bella Alarie from all over the floor, the Bulldogs could do nothing but watch as the Tigers surged into the Ivy League Tournament final.
Princeton has come out firing on all cylinders here in the Ivy League Tournament semifinal, and has given the strong contingent of Orange and Black much to cheer about in the opening half.
