CHINN UP: Princeton University women’s soccer star Lisa Chinn controls the ball in action last fall. Chinn, a senior co-captain, has been moved to forward from midfield and looks to be an offensive force this fall. The Tigers will open PU’s new soccer facility, Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium, on September 5 when they host Boston University.

Senior Star Chinn Ready to Go Out on High Note as PU Women’s Soccer Christens New Stadium

Lisa Chinn knows better than most the ups and downs that can come with a college sports career.

As a freshman with the 2004 Princeton University women’s soccer team, Chinn experienced a major high as the Tigers reached the NCAA Final Four.

Chinn, though, came down with mono during the spring of her sophomore year and opted to take a year off from school to recover.

Last fall, Chinn was thrilled as she returned to the field but disappointed as the Tigers dropped their last three games to end the season with a pedestrian 8-8-1 record.

Bill Alden

Katie Grant enjoyed a spectacular debut season last fall as she took the helm of the Stuart Country Day field hockey program.

The former Duke University star guided the Tartans to a 20-1-3 record in a campaign which saw Stuart win its third straight Mercer County Tournament and tie Lawrenceville for the state Prep title.

As Grant gets ready for her second season heading the program, she knows last year’s accomplishments don’t guarantee anything this fall.

After Undergoing Youth Movement Last Fall, Battle-Tested PDS Girls’ Soccer Aiming High

Bill Alden

Last fall, the Princeton Day School girls’ soccer team had no choice but to undergo a youth movement.

With only one senior, Alexa Maher, on the team and the roster featuring six freshmen and five sophomores, the Panthers predictably went through some growing pains.
