Hosting the Northeast Water Polo Conference tournament in DeNunzio this weekend, the No. 12 Tigers looked to win their second consecutive Collegiate Water Polo Association conference title and qualify for their second NCAA championship tournament in a row. Ultimately, despite a hard-fought struggle against Ivy League rival Harvard, these aspirations would be lost in a tough 14-13 loss to the Crimson.
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.
It’s 2 AM. You’re out on the street, having a great time, a couple cups in, talking to a group of cool people. You ask about classes, friends, hobbies, and interests – when suddenly, the subject of sports comes up.
The men’s and women’s swimming team opened the Ivy League season with a tri-meet this Friday and Saturday against old rivals Cornell and Penn. The men’s squad split the Ivy League opener, beating Cornell 191-109, but losing to Penn 108-192.

Princeton Field Hockey’s Cinderella story ended Friday night against Delaware in a close 3-2 match up.

The Princeton Tigers (8-2, 6-1 Ivy League) overcame Dartmouth (4-6, 1-6 Ivy League) this Saturday to clinch a share of their first Ivy League title since 2013.
Though a cursory glance at the Ivy League standings will reveal that Princeton (7-2, 5-1 Ivy) should be considered the favorite against Dartmouth (4-5, 1-5 Ivy), the Tigers hope to avoid complacency as they prepare for their season finale at home this Saturday. Saturday’s game has massive implications for Princeton, as it finds itself in a three-way tie for first place with Penn and Harvard with a single game left to play. If all three teams manage to win their season finales, the Ivy League will have three-way-champs for the second year in a row. While it is impossible to downplay the magnitude of these stakes for a Princeton team that last won an Ivy League title in 2013, the team must not let the possibility of a conference championship distract it from executing against a Dartmouth team looking to play the role of spoiler.
Princeton women’s squash are looking to open their season with a bang, taking on Stanford, Franklin & Marshall, and George Washington universities at home this weekend.
Ever since that first fateful 1869 football game, Princeton and Rutgers University, the flagship state university of New Jersey, have traveled down quite different paths. One is a private, liberal-arts oriented university, the other a sprawling public research institution and a member of the Big 10, one of the largest athletic conferences in the United States. But this Saturday, any differences between the two universities will be forgotten on the wrestling mat, as the two prepare for quite possibly the largest collegiate sporting event in New Jersey history. In the aptly-named “Battle of the Birthplace,” the Tigers will take on the No. 10 Scarlet Knights in High Point Solutions stadium before an estimated crowd of 15,000 people.

The 2016 Tigers have a big task on their hands. Their mission: to continue the success of the previous seasons and cement a legacy of their own.
Last year, the Princeton Women’s Ice Hockey Team had one of their most successful seasons in program history. The Tigers captured the Ivy League Championship title and went to the NCAA tournament for the first time in ten years and for the second time ever. After losing in the quarterfinals to No. 3 Minnesota, the team hopes to not only get an NCAA bid once again, but make it even further in the tournament. Senior defender Kelsey Koelzer commented, “Last year ended with PWIH’s second appearance in the NCAA tournament and that is obviously a goal for this year as well. Having the experience of playing at that level is definitely something that pushes us to reach the same levels this year and even go beyond.”
