After an impressive trouncing of Maryland and Buffalo at the Madison Square Garden Grapple in the Garden, the No. 25 Tigers headed to Lincoln this weekend for another pre-season test as they took part in the Nebraska Duals, hosted by the University of Nebraska. Though the Tigers wrestled well, ultimately they fell short of high expectations, losing to the Drexel Dragons and the No. 7 Nebraska Cornhuskers while defeating the Michigan State Spartans.

Morgan Steelman is a force to be reckoned with as a freshman on Princeton Women’s Squash, racking up two more wins against Williams and Middlebury this weekend. Ranked No. 1 at the U13, U15, and U17 age levels and reaching as high as No. 5 in U19, she will undoubtedly be vital to the depth and strength of the team as the season progresses. She took time off the court to sit down with The Daily Princetonian to talk dance moves and desert islands.
Down 5-3 with less than 10 minutes left to play in the third period against RPI, the Princeton men’s hockey team (3-7-1 overall, 1-6-1 ECAC Hockey) was faced with the possibility of a downright disastrous weekend. Having been thrashed 7-3 the night before to skillful conference opponent Union College (10-3-2, 6-1-1), Princeton was at risk of dropping a game against an RPI squad residing at the bottom of the ECAC standings and lacking Princeton’s talent. However, Princeton refused to concede the game without a fight and ultimately emerged with an enthralling 6-5 overtime victory.

At the start of the season, the Tigers were diving very much into the unknown. The team had two new coaches come in just six weeks before the start of their preseason regime, head coach Carla Tagliente and assistant coach Dina Rizzo. For a team that had been so successful under previous head coach Kristen Holmes-Winn, it was a big ask, but it was expected that the Tigers would take the Ivy League by storm and win another championship. This didn't happen, as they ended up finishing second in the league after suffering a 3-2 heartbreaker against Harvard. This match ended up costing the Orange and Black an Ivy League Championship, breaking their 11-year run as champions, bringing a legacy to an end. “After we lost to Harvard, it was tough because we knew we were less likely to win the Ivy League … but in the long run, I think it takes off some of the pressure of always winning it,” said sophomore midfielder Jane Donio-Enscoe. The pressure may have been taken off the Tigers, but they would still be expected to win their final Ivy League games to give them any chance of qualifying for the NCAA tournament.

On the night of Friday, September 18th at Hobey Baker Rink, the Princeton Women’s Ice Hockey team (5-4-1, 3-4-1 ECAC) broke Colgate’s 13-game winning streak. The Tigers kept the Raiders on their toes for the first 15 minutes of the game, making many shot attempts and keeping the puck on their offensive side for a majority of the time. The team connected well and seemed to finally begin to turn their shot attempts into points on the board. The first goal came off of an unassisted breakaway from freshman forward Carly Bullock, giving Princeton an early lead at 4:35 of the first period. Senior forward Molly Contini scored the next goal and sophomore forward Karlie Lund netted back-to-back shots to give Princeton a 4-0 lead in the second period. The Tigers kept the ball rolling, with shots from senior forward Cassidy Tucker and freshman forward Claire Thompson as well as a completion of a hat trick. Colgate’s two goals came from Olivia Zafuto in the second and Annika Zalewski off of a power play at the very end, but both were not enough to defeat the Tigers’ momentum.
Sometimes, the best way to get a team back on track is to get right back to work. That is exactly what the women's basketball team prepares to do this Thanksgiving week.
