Men's lacrosse claims outright Ivy title with win

Trailing after only one minute of play, the men's lacrosse team found its streak of Ivy perfection that had taken four hard seasons to build in jeopardy.Princeton's seniors, however, were not about to let the league doormat snap a career's worth of work.The Tigers (9-2 overall, 6-0 Ivy League) scored nine consecutive goals and then held on to defeat Dartmouth (5-8, 0-5) 10-7, in Hanover, N.H.

Men's lax seeks to regain momentum in Hanover

An Ivy title was at stake, the national championship picture was up in the air and two potent teams were coming to town.While last weekend's men's lacrosse action at 1952 Stadium featured three of the top 10 teams in the nation battling for Ivy and national bragging rights, tomorrow's game at Dartmouth (5-7 overall, 0-4 Ivy League) is decidedly less interesting.The Big Green has finished in the bottom half of the Ivy standings for the past several seasons, and is once again struggling this year.

Top-ranked Terrapins trounce women's lacrosse

With one minute left in the first half it seemed as if an upset was brewing.The women's lacrosse team (12-3 overall, 5-1 Ivy League) had scored back-to-back goals in a 40 second span to bring the Tigers back within two goals at 6-4.Maryland (16-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) made sure that burst of hope was short lived, however, as Terrapin midfielder Quinn Carney calmly flipped the ball to cutting attack Allison Comito for a quick goal with 14 seconds left on the clock.Off the faceoff after Comito's goal, junior midfielder Julie Shaner took the ball downfield on a fast break and fired an open shot just over the top of the net as time expired.Princeton would not regain the momentum for the rest of the evening and Maryland cruised to a 14-6 win last night at Princeton Stadium."I think if we had answered there it would have been a big momentum builder," head coach Chris Sailer said.

A Player's Coach, in his own words words

There was a glimmer of hope at the end of football's disappointing 1999 campaign. Going into the fourth quarter, the team held an 18-point lead over Dartmouth in the final game of the season.Roger Hughes, then offensive coordinator for the Big Green, extinguished that light, erasing the deficit and sending the Tigers to the bottom of the Ivy League.Now, the same man will try to restore hope and the winning attitude of past Princeton teams.
