IN A RUSH: Princeton University men’s hockey star Lee Jubinville splits the defense in a game earlier this season. Last Friday, Jubinville assisted on the game-winning goal as Princeton rallied to beat visiting Brown 3-2. A day later, Jubinville chipped in two assists as Princeton topped Yale 4-2 to post its eighth win in its last nine games.

Lee Jubinville and his teammates on the Princeton University men’s hockey team had reason to be concerned as they found themselves trailing Brown 1-0 heading into the third period last Friday.

But the junior winger felt that the Tigers hadn’t shown Brown its A-game. “We knew we didn’t play our best two periods,” said Jubinville. “We knew we had to get back to our game — skating, outworking them, and staying mentally focused.”

Princeton Men’s Hoops Webmaster Solomon Hits Century Mark in Covering Ivy Contests

As a high school kid hanging around Princeton University men’s basketball games at Jadwin Gym in the 1980s, Jon Solomon became intrigued with the so-called “14-Club.”

That club didn’t have anything to do with a Princeton player or some local post-game entertainment.

Instead, it referred to the duo of Steve Cohen and John Rounds who prided themselves on going to all 14 of Princeton’s Ivy League games season to season.

When the Princeton High girls’ hockey team faced Princeton Day School in mid-January, PHS star Haley Thompson couldn’t play due to a dislocated shoulder.

Taking advantage of the absence of Thompson and some other key Little Tiger players, PDS skated to a 3-0 victory that night.

Last Wednesday, Thompson was on the ice as the teams met for a rematch and she put PDS out of joint as she scored all three goals in a 3-2 win for the Little Tigers.

Hannah Epstein had her game face on last Saturday as the Princeton Day School girls’ basketball team hosted Blair in the opening round of the Prep A tournament.

The PDS senior guard didn’t crack a smile as she raced all over the court, looking to help the Panthers advance to the Prep A semifinals for the first time in her stellar career with the program.

Peter Blackburn brought plenty of ambition into his debut campaign with the Hun School boys’ hockey team.

“I came into this season knowing that I wanted to win the Mercer County and state Prep tournaments,” said the freshman forward, whose older brother, A.J., a 2007 Hun grad, starred for the Raiders the last four winters.
