Princeton University Campus Recreation recently released information regarding intramural e-sports, which offers students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to engage in friendly virtual competition in a variety of games on PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and even mobile devices.
The teams are heading to Ithaca, N.Y., this weekend for the annual Ivy League track and field championship meet. The women are looking to improve upon their fifth-place finish from last year, while the men are hoping to defend their indoor team championship title.
Sohie Cantine is now the only woman in Princeton’s program history to rank top 10 all-time in the mile, 1K, and 3K. Sam Ellis finished at the Boston University Valentine Invitational with a mile time of 3:57:66, a new school record.
The men had a number of strong performances over the weekend at the HYP meet, including two Ivy-league leading marks in the pole vault and 1000m run. There were several other first-place finishes, including the triple jump. The men came first overall with 89 points, well ahead of both Harvard (28 points) and Yale (63 points).
The women had several outstanding performances and a number of personal bests across all event groups at the HYP meet this past Saturday, including first-place finishes in the 60m hurdles and 500m races. The Tigers came first overall, beating Harvard 67–58 and Yale 67–56.
Three Princeton Tigers representing the men’s and women’s cross country teams qualified for the NCAA championships. Senior Conor Lundy and junior Melia Chittenden battled against the fiercest competition from across the country. First-year Camren Fischer did not participate in the meet after learning only several days beforehand of a likely stress fracture in his femur.
