Still smarting from Rutgers loss, w. soccer hopes to rebound at Columbia

Like pigs, all Ivy League games are created equal, but some are more equal than others.Tomorrow the women's soccer team travels to New York to take on Columbia, and while the Tigers do not wish to overlook the Lions, this should be one of their least taxing league games.The Lions were 0-6-1 last year in the Ivy League, and, while many of their starters graduated, the players that filled in the ranks have not caused a dramatic turnaround in the team's fortunes.This season, Columbia is 2-4-2 overall, having lost its sole Ivy contest to Cornell ? the lowest-scoring team in the league.Princeton is coming off its first loss of the season, a 1-0 heartbreaker against Rutgers on Tuesday."[The loss] was a wakeup call," senior forward Amee Reyes said.

Townsend brings energy, leadership to undefeated field hockey

"It's all in the Carbo-Force," sophomore defender Emily Townsend said as she crossed a rainy path after her interview with the 'Prince.'Her endorsement of the vitamin supplement seemed either to be a piece of esoteric field hockey wisdom, the secret to field hockey's hitherto undefeated season, or perhaps a chance to have a little fun with a credulous sports reporter.The laughter that followed her quote, however, revealed that Townsend had the latter in mind.
