GAME SAVER: Princeton University star free safety Kevin Kelleher displays the ball after making a key fourth quarter interception that stopped Columbia’s final march of the day and set up an insurance touchdown in the Tigers’ 42-32 win. The win lifted Princeton to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in Ivy League play. The Tigers, who have won two straight, will look to keep on the winning track when they host nationally-ranked Hampton (Va.) in the first-ever meeting between the schools.

Kelleher’s Big Plays Make Difference as PU Football Outlasts Columbia 42-32

Bill Alden

Kevin Kelleher will be the first to tell you that the Princeton University football team’s defense was not at its suffocating best last Saturday against Columbia.

The Tigers gave up 32 points and 396 yards of total offense to the Lions in the Ivy League opener for both teams.

Utilizing Cool-Headed Play, Fighting Spirit, Hun Girls’ Tennis Wins 7th Straight MCT

Bill Alden

Maura Giordano of the Hun School girls’ tennis team had reason to be concerned after the first set of the second doubles final last Wednesday at the Mercer County Tournament.

Giordano and her partner Emma Richardson, who were playing in just their fifth match together, had been pasted 6-2 in the first set of the title match by the hard-serving PHS pair of Jesse Delaney and Pooja Joshi.

Sparked by Bruising Defensive Effort, Hun Football Blanks Penn Charter 19-0

Bill Alden

In the early stages of its game last Saturday against Philadelphia-area power Penn Charter, the Hun School football was starting to get some bad feelings of deja vu.

After having lost three straight times to the Quakers, Hun got off to a shaky start on the defensive side of the ball. In its first possession of the contest, Penn Charter drove into Hun territory to put the Raiders on their heels.

Doubles Crown Is Worth the Wait for Bianchini but PHS Girls’ Tennis Can’t Pull Out MCT Title

Bill Alden

Princeton High tennis star Allegra Bianchini was bitterly disappointed when she walked off the court last year after her final match at the Mercer County Tournament (MCT).

Bianchini and partner Liz Haughton fell to Stuart’s Sarah Horton and Alex Abad 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 in the title match at second doubles, squandering some key chances in a nervewracking third set.

PDS Freshman Lieb Doesn’t Feel the Heat in Cruising to MCT First Singles Crown

Bill Alden

All eyes were on Princeton Day School freshman Samantha Lieb as she competed last week in the Mercer County Tournament (MCT).

The precocious Lieb was seeded No. 1 at first singles and her opponents were very aware of the fact that she had ranked in the top 50 in the country in the Under-14s before moving up to the U-16 ranks.

Despite having the bull’s eye planted firmly on her back in the competition held at Mercer County Park, Lieb was taking things in stride.
