Inside Princeton's fencing teams: The team spirit of an individual sport

“When people think of fencing, they think of Pirates of the Caribbean, waving swords and all that. But the modern version of fencing, the sport that we play, is actually very different,” said Dylan Kim ’21, epeeist on the Princeton men’s fencing team.

A season, lost: Princeton athletes reflect on cancellation of collegiate sports

The life of a Division I athlete is one of rigor and routine. Preseason. Competition season. Postseason. Repeat. The goal of a Division I athlete is to be game-ready, race-ready, match-ready by the time the season’s first whistle blows — and to be even better by the time the season’s last buzzer sounds. Two tweets in 25 hours and 18 minutes upended the rhythms, the lifestyles, and the dreams of 20 teams.

"Brotherhood": Scenes from the stands at Yankee Stadium

If the hundreds of students who flocked to Saturday’s game at Yankee Stadium did so to escape the routine of campus life, the hundreds of former football players who made the trip did so to relive it. They brought with them wives, husbands, children, grandchildren, friends — all of whom spent the day celebrating what former captain and nose guard Jeff Urbany ’84 called the “unbelievable brotherhood” that is Princeton football.
