Princeton Day School senior athletes Damali Simon-Ponte, left, and Grace Barbara are all smiles as they recently signed letters of intent to compete for Division I college soccer programs. Joining them for the ceremony in the back row, from left to right, are Head of School Paul Stellato, Associate Director of College Counseling Cindy Michalak, Director of College Counseling Sarah Graham, Head of Upper School Jason Robinson, and Director of Athletics Tim Williams. Simon-Ponte will play soccer at the University of Delaware in the fall. In 2016, star midfielder Simon-Ponte was the leading scorer for PDS and one of the top assist leaders in New Jersey as the Panthers won their third straight state Prep B crown. Barbara, for her part, will play for Princeton University next year. Star goalie Barbara is a two-time Mercer 33 honoree and was named top goalkeeper in Mercer County during 2016. Three other PDS seniors, C.J. Uche (Bucknell), Maddie Coyne (George Washington), and Donovan Davis (Elon University), have also committed to play soccer for D-I programs.
