TEST OF WILL: Princeton University senior wide receiver Will Thanheiser gathers in a 46-yard bomb from Brian Anderson in the last minute of the fourth quarter, setting up the winning field goal as Princeton edged visiting Lehigh 10-7. Thanheiser ended the evening with a career-high 9 receptions for 120 yards in helping the Tigers improve to 1-1.

PU Football Closes the Deal with Style Beating Lehigh 10-7 on Last Second FG

Bill Alden

There were 55 seconds left in the fourth quarter last Saturday night when the Princeton University football team took possession at its own 33-yard line.

Locked in a 7-7 tie with visiting Lehigh before a crowd of 8,836 at Princeton Stadium, the Tigers could’ve played it conservative, running the ball to play for overtime.

Instead, senior quarterback Brian Anderson asked Princeton head coach Roger Hughes for the chance to ad lib and take a gamble.

Lieb Takes MCT First Singles Crown Again, Helping PDS Girls’ Tennis Place 2nd Overall

Bill Alden

After going undefeated last season as a freshman, Samantha Lieb got off to a rocky start in her second campaign with the Princeton Day School girls’ tennis team.

The talented Lieb suffered two defeats in the first 10 days of the season, falling to Olivia Walton of the Hill School and Emma Levy of the Lawrenceville School.

As Lieb headed into the Mercer County Tournament last week looking to win her second straight title at first singles, she viewed her early season losses as a blessing in disguise.

Giacalone Taking Center Stage in Trenches, Helping PHS Football Trample WW/P-N 31-0

Joey Giacalone knows something about dealing with high expectations.

When he joined the Princeton High football program in 2005, he had some major footsteps to fill.

One of his older brothers, Vinny, was a star quarterback for PHS while a second brother, Frank, had emerged as a force on the line for the Little Tigers. Currently, Vinny is a senior tight end at Carnegie Mellon and Frank is a sophomore offensive tackle at Lehigh University.

Post-Grad Star Collins Fitting In Well as Hun Girls’ Soccer Makes Progress

Bill Alden

Arielle Collins and her teammates on the Hun School girls’ soccer team were frustrated as they battled Little Flower (Pa.) last week.

Coming off a seven-goal outburst against Mercersburg in its previous outing, Hun found itself trailing gritty Little Flower 2-0 some 10 minutes into the game.

Post-graduate star Collins, though, wasn’t about to let the Raiders throw in the towel. The former Steinert High standout made run after run at the Little Flower goal, getting off several shots that just missed the mark.
