Bill Alden

The Princeton University men's lacrosse team had the fate of its season in its hands in the waning moments of the fourth quarter of its NCAA opening round clash at sixth-seeded Georgetown last Sunday.

With the see-saw contest knotted at 8-8, Princeton had possession in the last minute and held the ball for what it hoped would be the last and decisive shot of the game.

Bill Alden

When the Princeton University women's basketball team started its 2002-03 season by falling 86-47 at Baylor University, the Tigers chalked up the loss as a good learning experience.

Jen Larsen felt like a bit of an outsider last spring when the Stuart Country Day lacrosse team won its second straight state Prep B title.

The transfer from Lawrenceville School spent most of the season playing for the JV team, moving up to the varsity for the playoffs.

Bill Alden

Coming into the Mercer County Tournament last Wednesday, the Princeton High boys' golf team knew it didn't have much of a margin for error if it was going to regain the team title.

Bill Alden

Andrew Baxter suffered a setback in his final spring with the Hun School baseball team as he was conked on the head at a practice by a throw from star pitcher Mike Russo.

The gritty shortstop suffered a concussion as a result, sidelining him for three games in early season action.

Since returning to the lineup, Baxter has been causing headaches for Hun's foes as he been a sparkplug for the Raiders' powerful offense and has logged some key innings on the mound.

Last Thursday, Baxter was at his pesky best, banging out two hits as Hun routed crosstown rival Princeton Day School 10-1 in the quarterfinals of the Mercer County Tournament.
