Although its hopes of winning the Ivy League title were dimmed by last Friday's loss to first-place Harvard, the women's basketball team is not without goals for its final week of play.After Princeton (13-10 overall, 7-4 Ivy League) won only seven of 24 games in its 1996-97 campaign, the Tigers have made remarkable strides this season.
It is the most individualized position in the game of hockey. In a sport that emphasizes intricate passing and multiple players running systems as a single unit, the goalie stands alone as the final line of defense.Senior Erasmo Saltarelli has filled this role for the Tigers.

This weekend the women's hockey team said parting words to its seniors, as the members of the class of '98 squared off in their final two home games at Baker Rink.After losing to Colby, 4-2, Saturday and to New Hampshire Sunday, Princeton (11-14-1 overall, 8-12-0 Eastern College Athletic Conference) must get out of its current slump, or risk having to say goodbye to the postseason as well.In Sunday's game, the offensive statistics for each team were quite similar.
Through all the ups and downs of the men's hockey season, there has been one solid assumption: the Tigers are going to the playoffs.That assumption is no longer sacred.This weekend Princeton (12-8-5 overall, 6-8-4 Eastern College Athletic Conference) had its third worst performance of the season, as the Tigers picked up just one point against St.

Men's squash knew that if it was to be stopped this weekend in its quest for an Intercollegiate Squash Association team title, its downfall would come in a rematch.Yet the Tigers could never have anticipated that their title run would end so soon, almost before it even started, in their "other" rematch.While many looked ahead to a semifinal meeting with second-seeded Harvard Saturday that would have pitted the Tigers against the only team to beat them this season, few thought that Princeton would have too much trouble getting by sixth-seeded Amherst, a team the Tigers had defeated, 7-2, just nine days ago.The Lord Jeffs, however, stunned the Tigers in the first round, 5-4, ending the Tigers' title hopes and sending Princeton into the consolation draw.Although Princeton (13-2 overall, 5-1 Ivy League) rebounded to take fifth place at ISAs with impressive wins over Denison (9-0) and Western Ontario (8-1), it was little consolation to a team that looked to challenge for a title."We came in high, playing so well," sophomore No.

When the final weeks of a season roll around, every team hopes to be firing on all cylinders going into the postseason.With just six games left before the Eastern College Athletic Conference playoffs begin, the men's hockey team is missing a few cylinders.Princeton (12-7-4 overall, 6-7-3 ECAC) will limp ? both literally and figuratively ? to upstate New York this weekend.
Almost every week an abundance of questions are directed towards head coach Bill Carmody and the members of the men's basketball team about Princeton's national ranking, Ratings Percentage Index and possible tournament seed.
If momentum counts for anything in sports, men's squash may have a good chance to come away with a national title this weekend.The Tigers, who host the 37-team Intercollegiate Squash Association team tournament today through Sunday at Jadwin and Dillon Gyms, will seek to translate the momentum they have gained over the last three weeks into a storybook ending to what once seemed like a lost season.Princeton (11-1 overall, 5-1 Ivy) comes off its biggest win of the season to date, a close 5-4 contest over previously unbeaten Trinity Tuesday that propelled the Tigers to a three-way tie in the regular season standings.Ultimately, a tiebreaker based on the number of individual match wins each school had against the other two awarded the regular season crown to Trinity, placing Princeton third behind Harvard.
The last time the women's basketball team played Harvard and Dartmouth, first place in the Ivy League was on the line.This weekend, as Princeton (12-9 overall, 6-3 Ivy League) travels north to face the Crimson and the Big Green for the final time this season, the Tigers are still in the hunt for the Ivy crown.
