GREAT SCOTT: Princeton University senior midfielder and co-captain Scott Sowanick races up the field in recent action. Last Saturday, Sowanick fired in two goals and had two assists to help Princeton top Dartmouth 13-6. The win improved No. 6 Princeton to 9-3 overall and 4-1 in Ivy League play.

With Sowanick Focusing on Wins, Not Stats, PU Men's Lax Primed for Big Stretch Drive

Scott Sowanick hasn't focused that much on individual statistics during his career with the Princeton University men's lacrosse team.

"I'm not a big scorer," said the senior midfielder and co-captain. "I'm like a point guard in a way, I kick it off and get things started. I try to draw slides and ignite the offense to get the ball moving."

The 5'10, 175-pound native of Bethesda, Md. played his role to the hilt last Saturday as he helped trigger Princeton to a 13-6 win over Dartmouth before a crowd of 2,412 at Class of 1952 Stadium.

Hot-Hitting Iacono Explodes in Last Weekend But Tiger Baseball Falls Short of Division Title

Bill Alden

Sal Iacono was determined to make his last regular season weekend with the Princeton University baseball team one to remember.

With Princeton needing to sweep two doubleheaders from Cornell in order to force a playoff with Penn for the Ivy League's Gehrig Division title, Iacono was primed to produce in the middle of the Tiger order.

Holland Earns 2nd Straight MCT Title As PDS Sweeps Singles in Taking 2nd

Bill Alden

Last spring, David Holland fought through a bad case of cramps in gutting his way to the first singles title at the Mercer County Tournament.

This past Wednesday at Mercer County Park, the Princeton Day school junior faced a different set of physical challenges as he looked to repeat his title.

With Crouse Stepping Up her Production, 10-0 PDS Girls' Lax On Track for Goals

Bill Alden

The slogan on the T-shirts worn by the Princeton Day School girls' lacrosse team reads "unfinished business."

But the PDS squad has faced a major hurdle in taking care of its business in the wake of the recent season-ending knee injury to high-scoring senior star Katie Briody.

With Briody cheering and coaching from the sidelines last week with a large brace on her left knee, PDS hosted Hun School, primed to handle a bit of that business as it looked to avenge last spring's bitter one-goal loss to the Raiders.

PHS Boys' Tennis Takes 3rd At MCT but Still Hasn't Reached its Potential

Bill Alden

Playing at second doubles, the Princeton High duo of Andrew Berman and Aaron Maltby got off to a good start last Wednesday in the final day of competition at the 2007 Mercer County Tournament.

The pair won the first set of their semifinals match 6-2 against Scott Weinreb and Brandon Frank of WW/P-N and seemed on course to advance to the finals.

But Bergman and Maltby lost the next two sets to end up in the third place match instead. Although the pair recovered to win that match, the result symbolized a day of missed opportunities for the Little Tigers.
