Powe, a 2007 Princeton alum, was called up to the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League. The 5’11, 212-pound Powe, who served as team captain for the Tigers in his senior season, has a goal and an assist and 12 penalty minutes in 23 appearances for the Flyers.

Darroll Powe is used to getting his way on the ice.

As Erin Cook developed into a 1000-point scorer during her career with the Princeton High girls’ basketball team, she gained a self-assurance on the court.

“I loved playing at Princeton High,” said Cook. “I loved the girls there. I think one of the biggest things I got from that experience was gaining confidence and being a leader on the floor. I always tried to stay positive.”

Jordan Shapiro harbored a special aspiration as she started her college swimming career this past fall at Kutztown University (Pa.).

“I made it a goal to set some type of school or pool record,” said Shapiro, a former star for the Princeton High girls’ swim team.

Wasting no time making a splash at the college level, Shapiro achieved that goal last November at the school’s Golden Bear Invitational, clocking a 2:08.13 in the 200 backstroke to set a pool record.

Bill Alden

Although the Hun School boys’ hockey team trailed Pennington 2-1 going into the third period last Wednesday, Harry Blackburn wasn’t worried.

“At the end of the second period, I think we had them on their heels,” recalled senior forward Blackburn.

“We said let’s come out hard and just keep doing what we are doing and the goals will come to us.”

Once the third period started, the goals did come from Hun as the Raiders scored three goals in the first 5:39 of the frame on the way to a 4-3 victory.

Bill Alden

One fought through a bruised collarbone to be a rock between the pipes and the other inflicted pain with her surgical finishing as the Princeton Day School girls’ hockey team battled crosstown rival Princeton High last Thursday.

The combination of gritty goalie Bryanna Mayes and opportunistic forward Georgia Travers proved to be the difference as PDS eked out a hard-fought 2-1 win over the Little Tigers.
