Over its first six games, the Princeton University football team committed exactly as many turnovers (13) as its foes.
Typically, football teams that don't win the turnover battle find themselves on the short end of the score.
But turning football convention on its head, the Tigers had gotten off to a 6-0 start.
Jeff Kampersal had a feeling that his Princeton University women's ice hockey team was ready to produce something special last Friday as it hosted third-ranked and undefeated St. Lawrence.
It was a rout that was four years in the making.
When the Stuart Country Day field hockey team cruised past Allentown 4-0 last Saturday in the Mercer County Tournament (MCT) championship game, it culminated a gradual upward progression for Stuart in the high-powered rivalry which has seen the teams meet four straight years in the MCT finals.
It was news that called for a group hug.
Having to wait for several minutes after the finish of the Mercer County Girls' Cross Country Championships while meet officials tabulated the results, the Princeton High girls' cross country team learned that the calculations showed that they had edged perennial power Hopewell Valley by three points.
When Hun School goalkeeper David Putman injured his left shoulder in the team's win over Pennington School in early October, it looked like Raider defense may have a huge hole to fill.
But fighting off the pain, Putman returned from the injury three days later to help spark a Hun victory over archrival Lawrenceville and the Raider defense has maintained its stingy ways.
