After a tough workout, long run, or stellar race, men’s cross country head coach Jason Vigilante often repeats a phrase to his team: “We’re right where we want to be.” Going into the Heptagonal Championship, this sentiment holds up.
Capturing the 2018 Heptagonal Championships title on Oct. 27 is not far-fetched for this year’s women’s cross country roster. The team has worked its way into the national NCAA rankings, currently standing at No. 30. The only other Ivy League team nationally ranked is No. 20 Columbia; Yale and Dartmouth received votes, but are not ranked.
Men’s cross country is running under the radar. Currently, the team stands right on the edge of breaking into the NCAA Top 30 rankings. But the team has its eyes set even higher, aiming for an Ivy League title, a first-place finish in the Mid-Atlantic NCAA Regional Championship, and a top 15 NCAA finish overall.

On Friday, Princeton battled back-and-forth with the Quakers, eventually losing 12–11. The Saturday matchups were not quite as close; the Tigers lost 9–2 and 3–2 in the first and second games of the doubleheader, respectively. Reflecting on the weekend, first-year Gianna Mavica said, “Getting swept by Penn obviously wasn't great, but there were some good things going in that series. Although we struggled defensively, offensively we started to string some hits together.”
Heading into the Ivy League championships this weekend, men’s and women’s golf hope for wins to secure bids to the NCAA tournament.

Softball is off to a strong start in Ivy League play.

The Wednesday victory was a nail-biter; the team came out strong in the first inning, but Brown caught up. Princeton’s only other home run came in the bottom of the sixth inning, when first-year outfielder Mackenzie Meyer hit a home run.
