Princeton’s Sondre Guttormsen ’23 won his third national title March 10, clearing 6 meters (19 feet, 8.25 inches) to tie the collegiate record in the men’s pole vault at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The win came five days after Guttormsen won his event at the European Indoor Championships in Istanbul, Turkey. Competing in both meets “was kind of a gamble,” he told after his record-tying performance, but “coffee helps, caffeine helps, and I was able to pull that out of somewhere.”

With seven minutes of tighter, tenser wrestling than his guns-blazing trademark style, 125-pound senior Patrick Glory won Princeton wrestling’s first national title since 1951 at the NCAA Championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma, March 18. Glory defeated Purdue’s Matt Ramos 4-1 in the final and joined Matthew Kolodzik ’21 in the four-time All-American club. Quincy Monday ’23, Glory’s roommate, finished third in the 165-pound division, and the Tigers placed 13th in the team standings, their best performance since placing fifth in 1951, the year Bradley Glass ’53 won his national title.
