At the H-Y-P indoor track meet Jan. 28, CARRINGTON AKOSA ’18 tied his own school record in the 60-meter dash (6.73 seconds) and set a new record in the 200 meters (21.34 seconds), trimming 0.05 seconds off the mark he set in February 2017. Princeton won the meet with 99 points, outscoring Harvard and Yale combined. Akosa also ran in the men’s 60-meter final at the Millrose Games Feb. 3, finishing eighth.
NICOLE KALHORN ’19 won her first three singles matches of the season in straight sets, and Princeton women’s tennis posted a perfect 3–0 mark as well, including a Feb. 4 upset of No. 12 Auburn at Jadwin Gym. The Auburn match was Princeton’s first win over an SEC team since 1982.
AMIR BELL ’18 scored 16 points, including five in overtime, as Princeton men’s basketball outlasted Yale, 76–73, Feb. 2. It was Bell’s best all-around game of the season: He also grabbed 11 rebounds, dished out four assists, and made two steals. The following night, overtime was less kind to the Tigers. Five Princeton players scored in double figures, but Brown tied the game late in regulation and pulled ahead with five seconds left in overtime, winning 102-100 in the highest-scoring game in Princeton history.
