Loss to Virginia still haunts Ivy-bound men's lacrosse

The No. 3 men's lacrosse team enters tomorrow's game against Yale (1-3) with a record of 3-1. But when Princeton walks onto the turf at 1952 Stadium tomorrow, its record might as well be 0-0.The Tigers view the lacrosse season in three parts: the early season schedule against traditional non-conference powers, the Ivy League slate and, most importantly, the postseason.Last Saturday Princeton finished the first part of its season with a 13-5 drubbing of Penn State.

Men's hockey goes to Wolverine den for NCAAs

Marty Turco has come a long way since he played his first game as a Wolverine.In his Michigan debut in the 1994 Blue-White game, Turco gave up eight goals,and many fans left wondering whether Turco could fill the shoes of his predecessor, Steve Shields, who had recorded more victories than any other goaltender in NCAA history.Michigan coach Red Berenson didn't like what he saw from his freshman goaltender that night either, and in the Wolverines' first game he started senior netminder Al Loges."Marty did not look good in the Blue-White game," Berenson said.

Tearing down the age-old walls of the great 'Thesis Myth'

Recommendation for all seniors who are starting to feel the press of thesis panic: Visit Mudd Library.Mudd is the flat, nondescript library next to the computer science building, and it is there that senior theses from the 1920s are housed; presumably, some incredibly valuable manuscripts reside there as well because Mudd has more stringent security than most banks in this town.Think Marquand is bad?

Women's lacrosse thrashes Columbia

The women's lacrosse team's early-season schedule has been full of tough opponents. During the first week of the regular season, Princeton defeated three teams of national prominence, the margins of victory becoming increasingly narrow with each game.One can only imagine, then, the relief the Tigers felt as they cruised through the second half of their 17-1 demolition of Columbia yesterday in New York, the game's final minutes proving to be nothing more than a formality.Unlike the game against Georgetown, Princeton (4-0 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) needed no help from the posts as its trio of goaltenders ? sophomore Laura Field, junior Amber Mettler and sophomore Michelle Leong ? had little trouble shutting down the Lions' attack. EverestThe Tigers could also have survived without a huge game from junior midfielder Cristi Samaras, but Princeton was more than happy to have its top scorer in peak form.
