BIG GUN: Princeton University sophomore running back Kenny Gunter races up the sideline as he picks up some of his 206 yards on seven kickoff returns last Saturday in Princeton’s 48-27 loss to Hampton. Gunter’s performance established a Princeton single-game record for kickoff return yardage, breaking the old mark of 185 set by Derek Wassink against Lehigh in 1986.

PU Football Squanders Lead Over Hampton as Turnovers Doom Tigers to 48-27 Loss

Bill Alden

The Hampton University football team rolled into town last Saturday for its first-ever meeting with Princeton, ranked No. 21 nationally and joined by its legendary band known as “The Force.”

But it was the Tigers who forced their will on Hampton in the first 30 minutes of the contest, utilizing some razzle-dazzle plays to build a 27-14 halftime lead.

After a rousing halftime performance by the Hampton band which drew several standing ovations, the Pirates started hitting the high notes on the field.

As the Princeton University women’s soccer took the field last week for its annual clash with Rutgers, it was clear that a memorable evening was in the cards.

Helped by Silver’s Versatility and Quality, PHS Boys’ Soccer Produces Hot 9-0 Start

Bill Alden

Ari Silver isn’t the flashiest player on the Princeton High boys’ soccer team.

While PHS strikers Sam Kotowski and Kyle DeBlois turn heads with their gaudy goal-scoring numbers and sweeper Peter McInerney controls the back line with flair, the workmanlike Silver quietly goes about his business.

But when the Little Tigers needed to shore things up in the center of the field, the coaches moved Silver up to midfield from his customary defensive spot.

With Passano Emerging as Offensive Force, Stuart Field Hockey Pounding the Opposition

Bill Alden

Last fall, Caroline Passano was on the outside looking in for the Stuart Country Day field hockey team.

Passano spent most of 2006 on the junior varsity as the Tartans rolled to an 18-1-1 record and won the varsity program’s second straight Mercer County Tournament crown.

This past spring, Passano emerged as a top gun for the Stuart lacrosse team, helping the Tartans to a third straight state Prep B title.

Shimkin Sets Career Rushing Mark as PDS Football Rolls to Victory

Bill Alden

Mike Shimkin came into last Saturday needing 49 yards on the ground to become the all-time leading career rusher in the history of Princeton Day School football.

It didn’t take long for PDS head coach Bruce Devlin to realize that senior tailback Shimkin was going to get the record as the Panthers played at Red Lion Christian (Del.)
