Between a halftime ceremony honoring members of the 1994 NCAA champion Princeton women’s lacrosse team and a postgame ceremony honoring the 2019 Princeton women’s lacrosse senior class, Saturday afternoon at Sherrerd Field was eventful. In the meantime, Princeton (9–3, 3–1 Ivy) found a way to edge out Harvard (6–7, 1–4), winning 14–12 in its final home game of the regular season.
Men’s lacrosse (5–6, 0–3 Ivy) defeated Siena College (5–5, 3–2 MAAC) 19–10 on Tuesday night in a game that saw Princeton’s junior attacker Michael Sowers score six goals and contribute five assists for a career-high 11 points. The win was a boost to the team’s overall record but doesn’t aid its playoff hopes — they are still winless in the Ivy League.

The women’s tennis team (14–4, 3–0 Ivy League) is dominating the Ivy League on the road with an undefeated record they extended to 3–0 this past Sunday as they beat Harvard 4–3. Senior Nicole Kalhorn helped seal the win for the Tigers to just edge out Harvard.
This past weekend, both the men’s and women’s golf teams hosted events in New Jersey. The men’s team hosted several teams in its annual Princeton Invitational at Springdale Golf Club. While not winning the team or individual titles, Princeton still performed well, including a third-place finish by sophomore Jake Mayer at -8. Along with Columbia, the women’s team co-hosted a new tournament, called Match Madness, at Fox Hollow in Branchburg, N.J. The women’s team was narrowly defeated in the final round by the University of Delaware in a contest where four of the individual matches came down to the final hole.

Coming off a solid win against Penn (16–8, 0–3 Ivy League) a week ago, the Princeton men’s tennis team (15–7, 2–1 Ivy) came back for more in a two-game home stand over the weekend. Their Ivy League opponents, Dartmouth (12–6, 1–1 Ivy) and Harvard (15–5, 2–0 Ivy), were both ranked ahead of the Tigers coming in to weekend play, but that didn’t seem to discourage them — Princeton was able to beat Dartmouth 6–1 on Saturday and then fell to Harvard in a tight 4–3 loss on Sunday.

Sailer congratulated her former player for her accomplishments with the Villanova Wildcats.
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.

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.
