ROLLING STONE: Princeton University women's open crew star Gevvie Stone shows her joy after Princeton won the grand final at the 2006 NCAA Championships. Stone, a senior, has provided key leadership as the Tigers have made steady progress this spring. After starting the season with losses to Ohio State and Brown, Princeton recently placed third at the Eastern Sprints and is currently ranked ninth nationally.

PU Women's Open Crew in Underdog Role as It Heads South to Defend NCAA Title

Bill Alden

A year ago, the Princeton University women's open crew roared into the NCAA championships as a clear favorite to win the grand final.

The senior-laden Tigers brought an undefeated record and No. 1 ranking into the regatta at nearby Lake Mercer.

Fuelled by the memory of having finished second in the 2005 NCAAs and buoyed by a home crowd, the Tigers lived up to their advance billing as they flew over the course to post a six-second win over Cal to establish themselves as a boat for the ages.

Calm and Collected Approach Pays Off as PHS Boys' Golf Wins Group III Title

Bill Alden

The NJSIAA Tournament of Champions state golf tournament is a pressure cooker than can wilt the nerves of even the most confident of players.

Bringing a No. 1 ranking into the competition last Monday at the Burlington Country Club in Westhampton, the Princeton High boys' golf team had reason to feel an additional layer of tension as the squad with a target on its back.

Shane Davis was determined to end his Hun School athletic career on a high note last weekend as the Raider baseball team competed in the state Prep A tournament.

After quarterbacking the Hun football team to the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) title last fall, Davis was looking to take a lead role in Hun's pursuit of its first Prep A baseball title since 2002.

PDS Boys' Tennis Wins 3rd Straight Prep B as Doubles Pairs Aid Dominant Singles Trio

Bill Alden

Heading into the state Prep B boys' tennis championships last week, Princeton Day School was confident that it could dominate the singles portion of the competition.

After all, the PDS singles trio of David Holland at No. 1, Neil Karandikar at No. 2, and Bo Marshall at No. 3 had only lost two matches between them all spring and each had won their flight at the Mercer County Tournament last month.

Stuart Track Wins 6th Straight Prep B, Sparked by Seniors, Johnson's Sprinting

Bill Alden

When the Stuart Country Day track team dropped a dual meet to Pennington by 30 points in April, the Tartans didn't appear to be a championship-caliber unit.

Stuart head coach Robert Abdullah, though, saw the setback as something that could benefit his team more than Pennington over the long haul.
