In Response to: Athletics and admission

Clay McEldowney ’69’s letter (April 2) suggested that a change in admissions leadership has led to lower athletic prowess among our sports teams. However, he fails to mention the men’s hockey team’s ECAC Championship win over Harvard and its place in the national playoffs. The team’s success should not be understated. One of its members, Lee Jubinville ’09, is one of 10 national Hobey Baker candidates, the award given to the best men’s hockey player in the country. Jubinville is Princeton’s first Hobey Baker candidate, an award named after a Prince-tonian. Personally, I think Princeton’s admission standards are just about right.
