MOORE TO COME: Princeton University men’s hockey defenseman Mike Moore looks to send the puck up the ice in action last season. The 6’1, 200-pound Moore had 14 points last season and led the Tigers in the plus/minus category. He figures to be the cornerstone of the Tiger defense as Princeton looks to build on the success of last winter when they advanced to the ECAC Hockey League quarterfinals for the first time since the 1998-99 season.

Senior Standout Burns Turns Offensive as PDS Field Hockey Gets on Right Track

Bill Alden

Erin Burns started this season content to be out of the spotlight for the Princeton Day School field hockey team, doing the dirty work along the back line.

The soft-spoken Burns, who started playing the game last year as a junior, had used her endurance and athleticism to make herself into a key defender for the Panthers.
