FOOTBALL defensive lineman Mike Catapano ’13 was named the Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year Dec. 3, becoming Princeton’s first Bushnell Cup recipient since quarterback Jeff Terrell ’07 in the team’s 2006 championship season. He also has been selected to play in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game Jan. 19, the longest-running college football all-star game.
With a home loss to Drexel Dec. 8, MEN’S BASKETBALL fell to 3–5 in early-season play. The Tigers surrendered a 13-point lead to the Dragons, continuing a frustrating trend — they led by nine points or more in six of their first eight games but went just 2–4 in those contests. Star forward Ian Hummer ’13 does it all for Princeton, ranking in the Ivy League’s top 10 in points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots.

WOMEN’S HOCKEY upended No. 8-ranked Ohio State at Baker Rink Nov. 24, its first win of the season against a nationally ranked team, but the Tigers had a 2–8–2 record in their conference as of Dec. 10.
WOMEN’S TRACK AND FIELD’s Julia Ratcliffe ’16 broke the Princeton record in the weight throw at the New Year’s Invitational Dec. 9. Her longest toss went 64 feet, 3 inches, exceeding the previous mark by more than a foot.
