All-American midfielder MADDIE BACSKAI ’20 scored the game-winning goals in each of the field hockey team’s first two NCAA Tournament games — a 2–1 win over Virginia Nov. 9 and a 2–1 win over Harvard Nov. 11, both at Princeton’s Bedford Field. The Tigers advanced to the Final Four for the eighth time in school history and the second time under head coach Carla Tagliente. Tagliente said it was a “surreal feeling” to earn the Final Four spot at home against her team’s top Ivy League rival.
COLLIN EADDY ’21 ran for 266 yards and three touchdowns in football’s Nov. 10 win over Yale in New Haven. Eaddy’s stellar day began on the Tigers’ first play, when he sprinted for a 75-yard touchdown, and he found the end zone again less than a minute later, on the first play of a Princeton drive that was set up by a Jeremiah Tyler ’21 interception.
Men’s soccer’s JEREMY COLVIN ’19 scored on a rebound in overtime against Penn Nov. 3, helping Princeton improve to 5–0–1 in Ivy play. It was Colvin’s fifth game-winning goal this season. The Tigers lost to Yale Nov. 10 but still won the league championship, earning a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010.
