Football vs. Monmouth W 51–9
Princeton's (2-0 overall, 0-0 Ivy League) home opener against Monmouth (2-2) began with a firework display above Powers Field as the Tigers ran out onto the field. Despite the early entertainment, the Tigers’ offense quickly took center stage. Senior quarterback John Lovett threw for 332 yards on 21-27 passing, senior wide receiver Jesper Horsted hauled in 3 touchdowns to set the Princeton record for career receiving touchdowns with 20, and the offense posted 49 points in a commanding 51-9 victory.
In November 2017, the Princeton women’s volleyball team won its third straight Ivy League Championship. While it was initially tied with Yale for the Ivy League title, a tiebreaker game allowed the Tigers to clinch the outright title and advance to the NCAA tournament, where they fell to Iowa State in three sets. Coming off of an 18–8 overall and 10–4 conference record, the Tigers are hungry for the same success.
The men’s soccer team had a tough start to the 2018 season, losing three out of its first four games. These losses were made especially tough given Princeton’s strong performances in these matches. The Tigers outshot Bradley 15–6 in their 2–1 loss and had five shots in their 1–0 defeat at the hands of Monmouth.
With the 2018 season already underway, the No. 25 women’s soccer team (5–2–1) is looking to repeat last year’s Ivy League and NCAA success. With six new team members and a successful preseason, the Tigers are set to remain champions for a second year in a row.
At first glance, Princeton football does not appear to be in a great position heading into the 2018 season. Not only are the Tigers coming off an underwhelming, second-to-last finish in the 2017 Ivy League standings, but they also graduated quarterback Chad Kanoff, now playing in the NFL for the Arizona Cardinals, who in 2017 indisputably posted the most impressive season by a quarterback in Princeton history. Further examination, however, reveals the Tigers have good reason for optimism. Princeton will return several key players who missed most or all of the 2017 season, including the 2016 Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year, senior quarterback John Lovett, and senior defensive standouts linebacker Mark Fossati and defensive lineman Kurt Holuba. The Tigers will also benefit from an influx of young talent looking to make an immediate impact — their 2018 recruiting class was ranked as the best in all of Football Championship Subdivision football and includes a quarterback, Brevin White, who chose Princeton over football powerhouse Alabama.
Last season, the men’s water polo team was led by a man who boasted a winning percentage of over .700, nine Southern titles, four Eastern Crowns, went to four NCAA Tournaments and — to top it all off — was the NCAA coach of the year in 2004.
Field hockey at Princeton enjoys a history of success, but under head coach Carla Tagliente, there has been a new pattern of dramatic moments to go along with these achievements.
Whether it was fourth-ranked Duke (6–2 overall), 13th-ranked Delaware (4–4 overall), or even unranked Monmouth (3–5 overall), the Tigers’ field hockey team (5–3 overall) has been able to defend its home field throughout the early part of the season. But after their double-overtime thriller against No. 3 Maryland (9–0 overall), the fifth-ranked Tigers no longer have a perfect record at home.
Tonight, the men’s soccer team will take the short trip over to Lawrenceville, New Jersey, to take on its neighbor Rider (12–5–2 overall, 6–2–2 conference) at 7 p.m. Princeton (3–3 overall) has rebounded after a slow start to its season, winning its last two games at its temporary home field of Sherrerd Field at Class of 1952 Stadium, which is usually the lacrosse field. Both the men’s and women’s soccer teams have been moved there from Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium for the last week due to the heavy rain Princeton got the weekend of Sept. 8.
Starting his third season, head women’s cross country coach Brad Hunt hopes to lead his team to an Ivy League title. Things look promising for the Tigers: after taking first at the Harvard-Yale-Princeton annual matchup, women’s cross country is off to a speedy start. Hunt has recruited two powerhouse underclassmen classes, and the team possesses depth, experience, as well as strong leadership from its nine seniors.
Princeton’s women’s volleyball (7–4 overall) had a lot of positive takeaways from its three-game weekend at the Cherry & White Classic at McGonigle Hall in Philadelphia. Princeton defeated New Hampshire (4–10) on Friday and Maryland (9–3) on Saturday before falling to Temple (3–9).
