JESPER HORSTED ’19 caught three touchdown passes in football’s Sept. 22 win over Monmouth, raising his career total to 20 — a new Princeton record. On the record-breaking play, he snagged a 35–yard toss from John Lovett ’19, skipped over the arms of a diving defender, and sprinted another 45 yards down the sideline for the score. Last fall, Horsted broke the Tigers’ single-season records for receptions (92) and receiving touchdowns (14). He also earned All-Ivy honors in baseball as Princeton’s starting centerfielder and batting-average leader in 2018.
Women’s volleyball star MAGGIE O’CONNELL ’20 had 21 kills to lead Princeton to a 3–1 victory over Yale at Dillon Gym Sept. 29. The Tigers notched early wins over a pair of Big Ten schools, Northwestern and Maryland, before opening Ivy League play with three straight victories. Princeton is vying for its fourth consecutive Ivy title.
SOPHIA TORNETTA ’19 scored three goals in field hockey’s first two Ivy games, a 3–0 win over Dartmouth Sept. 22 and a 5–0 dismantling of Yale Sept. 28. The Tigers, ranked No. 5 in the nation, also defeated Boston University Sept. 30 to improve to 8-3 this season.
