FOOTBALL standout Chuck Dibilio ’15, who suffered a stroke Jan. 19, was released from the hospital a week later. In an interview posted online, Dibilio said that physically he was “100 percent,” but mentally “I’m not there yet.” He was undergoing speech therapy, and as of Feb. 6, it was not known whether he planned to return to Princeton for the spring semester.

Dibilio was studying for a calculus exam with friends on campus when he began slurring his words. After being taken to University Medical Center at Princeton, he was flown to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, where doctors removed a clot in the main artery of his brain. Dibilio was the breakout star of the Ivy League during the 2011 season, rushing for 1,068 yards.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL defeated Brown 57–45 and dominated Yale 72–47 to improve to 5–0 in league play. The Tigers, who have won 21 consecutive Ivy League games at home, are on track to finish atop the conference and ­qualify for a third straight NCAA ­Tournament.

MEN’S TRACK AND FIELD is gunning for a third straight winter championship. One week after Peter Callahan ’13 and Joe Stilin ’12 set program records in the 1,000 and 3,000 meters, respectively, Callahan became just the second Tiger ever to break four minutes in the mile, running a 3:58.86 at the Sykes & Sabock Challenge Cup. 

A dual-meet streak of 43 victories came to an end when WOMEN’S SWIMMING AND DIVING came in second to ­Harvard in the annual H-Y-P meet. 

MEN’S SWIMMING AND DIVING swept ­Harvard and Yale, and was No. 24 in the national rankings.

After losing seven of their first 10 games, first-year head coach Bob Prier and MEN’S HOCKEY have turned their ­season around. In eight games since Christmas, the Tigers had three wins and four ties, averaging more than three goals per contest.
