Men's and women's swimming excel over break in preparation for H-Y-Ps

After women's swimming head coach Susan Teeter's landmark 100th career win at the women's swim meet this weekend in New York City, there were cheers, celebrating and even a huge orange and black banner, courtesy of the swimmers and their parents, to welcome Teeter into the "Century Club."But Teeter did not receive the traditional push in the water for such a grand accomplishment.The Tigers (8-0 overall, 7-0 Ivy League) dominated Columbia by the score of 138-95, but their coach knew that it wasn't time for a full celebration."Teeter is extraordinarily modest when it comes to this sort of stuff," senior captain Alyson Goodner said.

Men's hoops opens Ivies with two wins

NEW YORK CITY ? Despite the fact that junior forward Nathan Walton's weekend statistics show just two minutes, two points and two rebounds, those in attendance Saturday night at Levien Gymnasium in New York City would agree his contribution was much greater than those numbers indicate.With the men's basketball team (10-7 overall, 2-0 Ivy League) clinging to a five-point advantage, sophomore center Chris Young's fourth foul with five minutes, ten seconds to play forced head coach Bill Carmody to call on the injured Walton to protect the lead.Walton entered the game and immediately wrestled down an important defensive rebound, despite his broken right hand, which was protected by a clumsy cast.

Men's hockey falls to 7th place with three straight losses

Chalk it up to traditional post-break rustiness, or perhaps place the blame on old-fashioned poor play.Whatever the reason, the men's hockey team took a step backward in its first three games after a two-week layoff, dropping all three contests to fall to 6-10-3 overall on the season.A 6-2 loss to Rensselaer Friday and a 3-1 loss to Union Saturday at Baker Rink left Princeton tied for seventh in the Eastern College Athletic Conference with a 4-5-3 league record.

Stoic Morrow sets tone for men's volleyball

Jason Morrow has always been the center of attention, but the senior setter for the men's volleyball team would be the first to say that he is a star by coincidence and not by design.According to the second-year captain of a team looking for its first Final Four trip since Morrow's sophomore year, leadership is "inherent to being a setter ? it comes with the position."The role of the setter on any volleyball team is to position the ball for the hitters in the front row, a job Morrow has handled with ease since his freshman year."From Day One he stepped in and didn't miss a beat," head coach Glenn Nelson says of the talented Morrow.
