GARDEN PARTY: Princeton University wrestler Brett Harner, top, controls a foe. Last weekend at the NCAA Championships at Madison Square Garden in New York City, junior star Harner came up big, placing in the top 8 at 197 pounds to earn All-American status. He became the first Tiger to achieve that honor since Greg Parker did so in 2003. Earlier this month, he won the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (EIWA) title at 197, becoming the first Tiger to win an an Eastern crown since Parker in 2003.
