FENCING placed second at the NCAA Championships March 22–25, the program’s best finish since the combined men’s and women’s format was introduced in 1990. Jonathan Yergler ’13, above and left, captured the national title in men’s epee, becoming Princeton’s first individual champion since Soren Thompson ’05 in 2001. Yergler was one of nine Tigers to earn individual All-America honors.
Jon Christensen ’12 capped a stellar career for MEN’S SWIMMING with three All-America awards at the NCAA Championships March 22–24. The senior was named a first-team All-American after finishing seventh in the 200-yard breaststroke, and he earned honorable mention nominations in the 100-yard breaststroke and as part of the Tigers’ 200-yard medley relay. Lisa Boyce ’14 represented WOMEN’S SWIMMING in three events at the NCAAs March 15–17, including a 31st-place finish in the 100-yard freestyle.
WOMEN’S LACROSSE won its first two Ivy League games by wide margins, but Cornell spoiled the Tigers’ perfect league record in overtime at Sherrerd Field March 31.
