SPLIT SCREEN: Princeton University men’s hockey goalie Zane Kalemba moves into a split last Friday as he made one of his 27 saves in Princeton’s 3-0 win over Colgate in the ECAC Hockey semifinals. A night later, Kalemba made 35 saves as Princeton topped Harvard 4-1 to win the ECACH title game. Kalemba was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. The triumph improved 15th-ranked Princeton to 21-13 and earned the Tigers their first trip to the NCAA tournament since the 1997-98 season. Princeton will head to Madison, Wis. as the fourth seed in the Midwest Regional, taking on No. 1 North Dakota on March 29.

As the seconds ticked down in the third period last Saturday night in the ECAC Hockey championship game, the members of the Princeton University men’s hockey team stood in unison on the edge of their bench.

Ashley Amo was a bit under the weather as she hit the field for the Princeton University women’s lacrosse team last Wednesday for its clash against visiting James Madison.

“I’m actually sick,” said Amo, a senior attacker from Ridgewood, N.J. “I was a little nervous because I could barely breathe.”

Shaking off her illness and a steady rain, Amo produced a career game, scoring eight points on four goals and four assists as the Tigers pulled away to a 17-10 win over JMU.

Some athletes pay lip service to the notion of team first but not Emily Gratch.

The senior forward for the Hun School girls’ basketball team did whatever the Raiders needed this winter, whether it was a big shot, a deft pass, a pat on the back, or stacking up the chairs after a home game to clean the gym.

When senior star Kelly Bruvik went down with a season-ending knee injury early last spring, it looked like the Stuart Country Day lacrosse team was facing some hard times.
