Bill Alden

After putting together an outstanding career at Cold Spring Harbor High School, Susannah Aboff had the chance to join the Duke University women’s golf team, the dominant program in its sport.

But Aboff, who was also recruited by Northwestern, Yale, and Princeton, got bad vibes about her potential role on the star-studded Duke squad.

Bill Alden

When the Princeton University softball team dropped 12 out of 13 games on its spring break swing in California, it would have been understandable if first-year head coach Trina Salcido lost some confidence in her squad.

Instead, Salcido’s belief in her players was unshaken even as the defeats piled up.

“We had to stay positive, we had heartbreaking losses in the last inning and we had big losses to teams like Stanford and Cal,” said Salcido, whose club dropped six one-run contests on the trip.

Bill Alden

Coming into the spring, the Princeton Day School baseball team was depending on sophomore Jim Fuhrman to head up its pitching rotation.

Last Wednesday, the hard-throwing right-hander certainly looked like an ace as he threw a five-hit shutout against visiting Pennington.

But Fuhrman gave PDS a lot more than superb moundwork in the contests, going 3-for-3 at the plate with 7 RBIs to help pace the Panthers to a 16-0 rout and improve to 5-0.

After being sidelined all last year due to a knee injury, the junior attacker has been determined to make his presence felt this spring.
