Facing a string of five Big East opponents to start the season, MEN’S SOCCER won two games and lost three. Rookie Thomas Sanner ’16 had a hand in all three Princeton goals in that span, scoring one and adding two assists — one of which went to his brother, returning All-Ivy selection Matt Sanner ’13. 

Jen Hoy ’13 scored three goals for WOMEN’S SOCCER in a 4–4 draw with Colgate Sept. 2. Princeton opened the year with a 2–3–1 record.

In its first race under new coach Jason Vigilante, MEN’S CROSS COUNTRY handily won the Spiked Shoe Invitational at Penn State Sept. 8, as Alejandro Arroyo Yamin ’14 finished first and three other Tigers took places 3, 4, and 5. The following week, Princeton moved up to No. 15 in the national rankings.

WOMEN’S CROSS COUNTRY also achieved a national ranking, No. 28, after finishing second at the Spiked Shoe Invitational. Emily de la Bruyere ’15 was the team’s top runner and fifth overall in the meet.
