OPENING FEATURE: Princeton University running back Jordan Culbreath picks up yardage in a game last season. Last Saturday, junior Culbreath led the Tigers with 74 yards rushing but it wasn’t enough as Princeton fell 37-24 at The Citadel in its season opener. The Tigers will look to get in the win column when they host Lehigh on September 27.

PU Football Starts Opener With Superb First Half, but Can’t Match Citadel’s Intensity in 37-24 Loss

Bill Alden

Last October, the Princeton University football team went out of its league to take on Hampton University, a power in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).

Buoyed by a large home crowd of 15,329, Princeton jumped out to a 27-14 lead by halftime. After Hampton’s legendary band entertained the crowd with a rousing show at intermission, the Pirates ran the Tigers out of the building as they reeled off 34 straight points on the way to a 48-27 win.

Last Saturday, Princeton opened its 2008 season by exploring more untested waters. This time, the Tigers headed down to South Carolina to play The Citadel in its first-ever meeting with a Southern Conference school.

With Annis Triggering Offense, PHS Field Hockey Gets First Win

Bill Alden

Liz Annis and her teammates on the Princeton High field hockey team couldn’t find an offensive rhythm in their first two games this season.

Finding goals hard to come by, PHS started their 2008 campaign by falling 3-1 to Notre Dame and then dropping a 4-0 decision to Hightstown.

Coming into the team’s home opener last Thursday against Lawrence High, the Little Tigers were focused on the basics as they looked to jump start their attack.

Heeding Wake-up Call From Opening Day Loss, PHS Football Rebounds by Routing Ewing 39-7

Bill Alden

Steve Everette imitated Johnny Cash’s sartorial style last week but not because he is a fan of the late country music star.

Instead, the Princeton High football head coach was the man in black at practice last week, looking to set the tone as PHS worked on bouncing back from its 29-3 opening day drubbing at the hands of Nottingham.

QB Dudeck Sets the Tone With TD Run as Hun Football Routs Mercersburg 38-13

After having been shut out by Wyoming Seminary (Pa.) in its season opener, the Hun School football team was looking to get on the board early last Saturday against visiting Mercersburg Academy.

PDS Field Hockey Plagued by Uneven Play, Needs Battle-Tested Seniors to Take Charge

Bill Alden

In 2007, the Princeton Day School field hockey team stumbled out of the gate to a 0-5 start.

The Panthers, though, righted the ship, going 9-4-1 the rest of the way and advancing to the state Prep and Mercer County semifinals.

Featuring a core of seven battle-tested seniors, PDS figured to build on its late surge and be formidable right from the start this fall.
