FAST TRACK: Princeton University men’s hockey star forward Lee Jubinville tracks down the puck in action last winter. Jubinville, who was named the ECAC Hockey Player of the Year in 2007-08 and earned first-team All-American honors, will be a top gun for Princeton this winter. The Tigers open their 2008-09 season by playing at Brown on October 31 in a non-league contest.

PU Men’s Hockey Seen as ECACH Favorite but Focusing on Daily Effort as Season Opens

Bill Alden

When Guy Gadowsky took over the Princeton University men’s hockey program in 2004, he faced a daunting reclamation project.

The Tigers had gone a combined 8-50-4 in the two seasons prior to Gadowsky’s arrival from Alaska-Fairbanks.

Installing a free-wheeling style and showing a knack for bringing in talented players, Gadowsky lifted Princeton from the ECAC Hockey League cellar to the penthouse.

Last winter, the program’s reversal of fortune culminated with Princeton winning the ECACH tournament and becoming one of the feel-good stories in college hockey as the Tigers broke into the Top 20 in the national polls.

PU Women’s Soccer Hit by Lightning, Undone by Harvard Strikes in 2-1 Loss

Bill Alden

Coming into its Ivy League showdown last Saturday night with visiting Harvard, the Princeton University women’s soccer team had given up just two goals in its last nine games.

Riding that stingy defense, Princeton brought a 10-game unbeaten streak into the evening, standing at 9-1-2 overall and 3-0-1 in Ivy play.

Harvard, which came into the game with an 8-3-3 mark and a 3-1 league record, had displayed some effective finishing, boasting three players with more than 10 points on the season.

As rain pelted Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium, Harvard stunned the Tigers by slipping in two goals in the first eight minutes of the contest.

Answering Telegram in the Summer of 1970 Started Anderson on Path to PHS Hall of Fame

Bill Alden

Marc Anderson’s connection with Princeton began with a telegram out of the blue in the summer of 1970.

Anderson, who had just graduated from Central Michigan University after a stellar track career, was looking for a teaching and coaching position.

The Michigan native was focusing his search on the midwest until he got an unsolicited communication from the Princeton school system.

Shoemaker Gets Company in Prep A Finals as Hun Girls’ Tennis Takes 2nd in Each Flight

Bill Alden

Last fall, first singles star Kara Shoemaker was the only player on the Hun School girls’ tennis team to advance to the championship round of the state Prep A tournament.

As the Raiders took the court earlier this month at Lawrenceville for this year’s Prep A tourney, Shoemaker was looking to again advance to the final round but this time with a little company.

“Kara wanted somebody else to go with her on Wednesday,” said Hun head coach Joan Nuse with a laugh. “The girls were really psyched to go out and do well.”
