LOW RIDER: Princeton University freshman forward Kevin Lohry races up the ice last Saturday in Princeton’s 2-1 win over Cornell. A night earlier, Lohry chipped in a goal and two assists as Princeton routed Colgate 7-2. The weekend sweep clinched home ice for the Tigers for the March 14-16 ECACH quarterfinal weekend. Tickets for the playoff series are currently on sale at the Princeton ticket office in Jadwin Gym.

Kevin Lohry’s debut season with the Princeton University men’s hockey team didn’t get off to a flying start.

Scott MacKenzie tended to tighten up on the field last year in his debut season for the Princeton University men’s lacrosse team.

“I let the game get to me and I started freaking out instead of having a good time on the field and realizing what I have to do,” said the 6’5, 210-pound MacKenzie, who scored just two assists in 12 appearances in 2007 as a freshman.

This past December, Paige Johnson didn’t sense that the Princeton High girls’ swimming team was headed for big things.

“I think we started the season with a negative feeling; the question was how would we perform because we lost so many people from last year’s team,” said Johnson, a PHS senior co-captain.

Hun Girls’ Hoops Succumbs to Peddie Curse as Raiders Fall in Prep A Championship Game

Bill Alden

Bill Holup thought that last Wednesday’s state Prep A title contest might be the game where his Hun School girls’ basketball team could finally topple powerful Peddie.

Three days earlier, the teams met in the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) final and were deadlocked 17-17 at the half. After intermission, Peddie caught fire from the outside, hitting six three-pointers in the second half as it pulled away to a 55-43 win.
