HISTORIC PACE: Princeton University junior running back Jordan Culbreath races through the Dartmouth defense last Saturday in Princeton’s 28-10 win over the Big Green. Culbreath made history in the victory, running for 276 yards on 40 carries, the second-highest single game rushing total for Princeton behind the 299 yards gained by Keith Elias against Lafayette in 1992. Culbreath finished the season as the Ivy League’s leading rusher with 1,206 yards. His output this fall was the fourth-highest single-season total in Tiger history.

Blaring music and periodic whoops of joy bounced off the walls of the Princeton University football team’s locker room as last Saturday afternoon turned to evening.

While the Tiger players reveled in the euphoria following their 28-10 season-ending win over Dartmouth before a crowd of 7,113 at Princeton Stadium, the man most responsible for the win quietly put things in perspective across the hall at the post-game media conference.

Junior running back Jordan Culbreath, who ended the day with 276 yards rushing, the second best single-game total in Princeton history (behind the 299 yards gained by Keith Elias against Lafayette in 1992), came into the freezing, windy afternoon confident that things were going to end on a high note.

Last fall, the Princeton University women’s cross country team flew into the NCAA championship meet ranked fourth nationally.

Princeton head coach Peter Farrell sat his runners down for a heart-to-heart chat in the wake of the rough outing.

Laura Johnson has gone through plenty of pregame warm-ups over the years but last Saturday night was special.

The 5’8 Johnson cherished the moment as she loosened up in Jadwin Gym before the first home game of her career with the Princeton University women’s basketball team.

“I love it; it is an awesome gym,” said Johnson. “I was excited for my first game at home. It was a good crowd; I was ready to play.”

After Taking Plenty of Lumps Last Winter, PHS Boys’ Hockey Primed for New Season

Bill Alden

Going with a youth movement by necessity last winter, the Princeton High boys’ ice hockey team took it on the chin night after night.

With only three seniors on the team and relying on five main players, PHS struggled to a 4-17 record in Tim Campbell’s debut season as head coach.

But as the 2008-09 season approaches, Campbell believes his young players have absorbed the tough lessons they learned last winter.

It started in the first game of the season for the Princeton High boys’ soccer team and it continued all fall.

In early September, senior forward Sam Kotowski notched the game-winning goal for PHS in a 2-1 win over Lawrence in the season opener for both teams.

Having started from the day he walked in the door in his freshman year at PHS, Kotowski was primed to be the go-to guy for PHS in his final campaign.
