DOUBLE DOUBLE: Members of the Princeton University men’s and women’s cross country teams celebrate last Friday after they both won at the Ivy League Heptagonal championship meet. It was each squad’s second straight Heps crown, making the Tigers the first Ivy program to sweep the meet in consecutive years since Dartmouth won in 1994 and 1995.

Coaches are worriers by nature and Peter Farrell is no exception.

Even though his Princeton University women’s cross country team was coming off its second straight NCAA Mid-Atlantic regional title and its first win in the Ivy League Heptagonal meet since 1980, the longtime head coach had an uneasy feeling as his team convened this August.

It had been a long, rainy night for the throng of student fans who turned up last Wednesday to support their Hun School boys’ soccer team as it faced undefeated Princeton High in the Mercer County Tournament semis.
