It’s easy to say “equal pay for equal work.” The fact of the matter is that neither the work, nor the product of that work, is equal in U.S. Soccer. The women’s team plays more games, and wins more games (including more World Cups and Olympic championships), than the men’s team. Yet, the women’s national soccer team is paid far less for its victories.
At home last weekend, softball (6–15 overall, 3–3 Ivy League) faced off against its Ivy League co-leader Columbia (12–12, 5–1) in a three-game series. The Tigers took the first of the weekend’s games but dropped the next two by just one run.
Last weekend, for the second week in a row, a struggling Princeton baseball squad took on an Ivy League foe for a three-game set. And for the second week in a row, they returned to Princeton with just one win.
Last weekend, the women’s golf team traveled to Florida for the Harvard Invitational and carded 880, its best three-round event score in program history. The Tigers’ previous best rounds were the 884 they had at Old Dominion’s Princess Anne Invitational this fall and an 889 at Penn State’s Nittany Lion Invitational in the fall of 2017.
For the Princeton men’s tennis team (17–6 overall, 1–0 Ivy League), it’s good to be home: following a three-match West Coast trip, the Tigers returned to Princeton and began Ivy League play on a warm Saturday afternoon with a close win against the University of Pennsylvania (16–6, 0–1 Ivy).
Spring sports are in full swing. Here are recaps of some of this weekend’s action.
Lacrosse, as they say, is a game of runs. Princeton men’s lacrosse (3–6, 0–3 Ivy) has recently found itself too often on the wrong end of those runs. A 7–1 run in a loss to Johns Hopkins. A 12–1 run in a loss at Penn. A 6–1 run in a loss to Yale. Most recently, Princeton suffered a 6–1 Brown run in the second half of its 14–10 loss to the Bears (4–5, 2–0) this Saturday at Sherrerd Field.
Men’s lacrosse (3–5, 0–2 Ivy) will take on Brown University (3–5, 1–0) this Saturday at Sherrerd Field. Fresh off of a win against the University of Denver (5–3), the team looks to turn around its performance in the Ivy League after starting 0–2 in conference play.
It’s always difficult going into a game where the opponent is undefeated and highly ranked in the nation, which is what No. 16 Princeton women’s lacrosse team (5–3) discovered Wednesday night against No. 2 Maryland (11–0). Maryland’s Jen Giles and Kali Hartshorn scored four goals each, and Princeton fell 15–7 to the Terrapins in College Park, Md.
Last weekend, Princeton Men’s Volleyball (10–12 overall, 8–1 EIVA) faced No. 10 Brigham Young University (12–8), the No. 1 University of Hawaii (21–0), and McKendree University (11–9) at the BYU Invitational in Provo, Utah. McKendree and Hawaii swept the Tigers, and a near upset of the BYU Cougars ended in a loss for Princeton.
Princeton Baseball (4–13 overall, 1–2 Ivy League) kicked off its Ivy League season last weekend with a two-day, three-game series against Dartmouth (8–11, 2–1) at Rutgers University’s Bainton Field. The Tigers fell 23–3 and 10–8 in Saturday’s doubleheader, but pulled together to defeat Dartmouth 8–2 in the Sunday finale.
Men’s lacrosse (3–5, 0–2 Ivy) defeated University of Denver (5–3) 14–13 in a nail-biter on Tuesday evening. The Tigers pulled ahead early in the game at Sherrerd Field, fell behind, and came back to secure victory against the Pioneers.
Princeton softball (5–13, 2–1 Ivy) opened the Ivy League season this weekend with a 2–1 series win against Yale (8–14, 3–3), a solid start for a team that has already experienced plenty of ups and downs throughout the early part of the season. The Tigers began the series with a resounding 8–0 victory on Saturday, which saw five players record multi-hit games, including a four RBI performance from senior infielder Kaylee Grant. Sophomore pitcher Allie Reynolds pitched five shutout innings, giving up just three hits and striking out three. Reynolds, who leads the Tigers in innings pitched and is tied for first in starts, figures to play a major role for the team as it begins the Ivy League season. Last year, Reynolds threw 125 ⅓ of the team’s 246 ⅔ innings, and her role will only increase this season as she has emerged as the unequivocal leader of the pitching staff.
After receiving an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, Princeton, the No. 7 ranked women’s hockey team (20—8—5), lost to No. 2 Minnesota (30—5—1) in Minneapolis, 5—2 – a scoreline that does not reflect how close the game really was due to two late empty-net goals by the Golden Gophers. After this game Minnesota beat Cornell 2—0 and then lost to Wisconsin 0—2 in the national championship game.
Head wrestling coach Chris Ayres leaned against a basement wall in the Pittsburgh PPG Paints Arena. He ran a hand through his close-cropped hair. For a second, he seemed on the verge of tears.
Leading No. 6 Kentucky (25–7, 11–5 SEC) by four points at halftime in the first round of the NCAA tournament, No. 11 Princeton women’s basketball (22–10, 12–2 Ivy) was 20 minutes away from pulling off an upset. Unfortunately for the Tigers, Kentucky had other ideas. The Wildcats outscored Princeton by nine points in the second half, ending Princeton’s season with a 82–77 win.
On the second day of the 2019 NCAA Championships, Princeton wrestling made history — but not as much as it had hoped.

Princeton head wrestling coach Christopher Ayres doesn’t mince words.
For the first 35 minutes of Sunday evening’s Ivy women’s basketball tournament championship in New Haven, Princeton (22–9, 12–2 Ivy) and Penn (23–6, 12–2) looked about as evenly matched as two teams could. In the final five minutes, Princeton proved that it deserved to repeat as tournament champion.
