Princeton field hockey trailed Yale by a goal late in a Sept. 29 game at Bedford Field before striker RYAN MCCARTHY ’18 dramatically reversed the Tigers’ fortunes. McCarthy tied the score on a penalty corner with 2:56 left and then put her team ahead, 3–2, on a diving rebound shot with no time remaining. (Princeton had been awarded a penalty corner as the second half expired.) McCarthy, the Tigers’ leading scorer, earned a spot on the U.S. women’s national development squad in June.
TOM GEORGE ’18 stroked Great Britain in the men’s pair final at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, Fla., Sept. 30, earning fifth place with partner Tom Jeffery. George, the only current undergraduate to race for gold at the World Championships, has rowed with the Tigers’ varsity eight for three seasons. Former teammates Pat Elbe ’16 and Nick Mead ’17 earned silver medals with the U.S. men’s eight.
Outside hitter NATASHA SKOV ’20, a first-year starter who leads the Ivy League in kills and points, helped the women’s volleyball team to a four-set victory at Yale Sept. 30, Princeton’s first win in New Haven since 2007. The Tigers opened Ivy play 3–0, sweeping Penn and Brown before facing the Bulldogs.
