HIS CUP RUNNETH OVER: George Parros acknowledges the cheers last Friday as he displayed the Stanley Cup at Princeton's Baker Rink. Parros, a 2003 PU grad who scored 45 points in his college career, won the Cup this past season playing for the Anaheim Ducks. He is the first Princeton player to play on a Stanley Cup winning team.

Parros' Improbable Stanley Cup Journey Highlighted by Stop at PU's Baker Rink

It was a journey that George Parros never thought he would have the opportunity to take.

Earlier in this past NHL season, Parros, a former Princeton University hockey star, fell out of favor with the Colorado Avalanche and thought he was about to be shipped to the minor leagues.

Instead, the Avs traded Parros to the Anaheim Ducks in November where the burly 6'5, 232-pound forward quickly found a home as an enforcer. The rugged, skilled Ducks went on to win the Stanley Cup, topping the Ottawa Senators in the final series.

The mantra last year for the Princeton University field hockey team was "finish."

Playing third-ranked Old Dominion last November in the opening round of the NCAA tournament, the Tigers showed that "finish" was more than a buzzword as Tina Bortz converted a Katie Kinzer feed in overtime to give the Tigers a stunning 3-2 upset.

With Focus on Developing Tougher Mentality, PU Men's Soccer Hoping Bounces Go Its Way

With its old stomping ground of Lourie-Love Field currently being transformed into the state-of-the-art Roberts Stadium, the Princeton University men's soccer team's home this fall will be the field turf at Princeton Stadium.

Coming off a frustrating 6-8-3 season which saw the Tigers go 1-3-3 in seven overtime contests, PU head coach Jim Barlow is hoping the bounces will go his team's way at its temporary home.

In 2004, the Princeton University women's soccer team reached unprecedented heights as it made a dazzling run to the NCAA Final Four.

The Tigers have stumbled in the last two campaigns, failing to win the Ivy League or advance to the NCAA tournament since that magical fall.

Former PHS Tennis Standout Bergman Ready for Ultimate Experience at PU

Bill Alden

As he started middle school seven years ago, Andrew Bergman was focused on tennis and perfecting his backhand, forehand, and serve.

But in summer camp after eighth grade, Bergman's athletic horizons broadened as he started learning about the huck, the flick, and the hammer as he took up Ultimate Frisbee.
