ADAM KELLY ’19 tossed a career-best — and Ivy League record — 23.38 meters in the final round of the weight throw at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships March 9, capturing second place. Kelly earned first-team All-America honors for the first time in his career and posted Princeton’s best NCAA finish in the weight throw since 1980, when Dave Pellegrini ’80 won the event.
Men’s hockey star MAX VÉRONNEAU ’19 made his NHL debut for the Ottawa Senators March 14, just five days after his final collegiate game, a triple-overtime ECAC playoff loss at Brown. Véronneau made his first pro assist March 16 in Ottawa’s 6-2 win over Toronto. Princeton teammates Ryan Kuffner ’19 and Josh Teves ’19 also signed NHL free-agent contracts, with the Detroit Red Wings and Vancouver Canucks, respectively.
Baseball coach SCOTT BRADLEY won his 400th game at Princeton when the Tigers topped George Mason, 5–3, in the opener of a doubleheader March 2. Bradley, who has led his teams to seven Ivy League titles in 21 seasons, ranks second on Princeton’s all-time wins list behind Bill Clarke, whose teams won 564 games in 36 seasons.
