BACK IN STRIDE: Princeton University men's soccer junior midfielder Matt Care races up the field last Friday in Princeton's 2-1 loss to visiting Loyola (Md.) in the season opener for both teams. Care, a former star for the Hun School and a second-team All-Ivy League performer in his freshman year at PU, is back at full strength after struggling with illness last fall.

It was a tough night for the Princeton University men's soccer team.

After building a 1-0 lead against Loyola (Md.) last Friday in the season opener for both teams, the Tigers surrendered two goals in a fateful 1:09 stretch in the second half on the way to a 2-1 setback.

Minutes after shaking hands with the Loyola players, the Tigers trudged disconsolately across the field turf at Princeton Stadium where they sat in a circle, rehashing the loss before doing their post-game stretching routine.

Growing up as the son of a Major League baseball player, many would assume that Will Venable always dreamed of following in his father's footsteps and was destined to a career in the big leagues.

The Princeton High football team has been spoiled the last few years when it comes to the skill positions.

Featuring record-breaking running back Alexz Henriques, star quarterbacks like Vinny Giacalone and Johnny Mitko, and such standout receivers as Marc Andre, Ben Guervil, and Tyler Moni, the ball has typically been in the hands of a few players.

As the Little Tigers look ahead to their season-opener this Saturday at Steinert, PHS head coach Steve Everette knows that his team is going to have to spread the wealth.

Bill Alden

After finishing a stellar field hockey career at Duke University and graduating in 2006, Katie Grant headed overseas to continue her playing career.

Initially, Grant's goal was to play herself onto the U.S. national team. But the Lehighton, Pa. native came to realize that it was time to pursue her long-term goals of coaching.

Returning to the states, Grant started working with the U.S. Field Hockey futures program and learned through the grapevine that the Stuart Country Day School was looking for a head coach.
