2008-09 Athletics Year in Review
2008-09 Athletics Year in Review Tiger Dominance Once More • by Jerry Price
he runners began to emerge from the woods and head down the long final push to the chute. The first one was, appropriately for this Halloween Day, dressed in Orange and Black. So was the next one. And the one after that. And five of the first six. And seven of the first nine. Princeton’s first Ivy League championship of the 2008-09 academic year was put up by the women’s cross country team at the Heptagonal championships on Halloween, and it came, prophetically enough, when the Tigers simply ran away from the pack. Before the final track races in June brought the athletic year to its official end, Princeton teams produce 11 Ivy League championship teams and two national championship teams, as well as another team that was the national runner-up and another that finished fifth out of the 350 Division I teams in that sport. The 2008-09 year marked the 17th time in school history that Princeton has reached double figures in Ivy titles; the rest of the league combined has done so three times. Princeton would win the Ivy League’s unofficial all-sports points championship for the 23rd straight year, reaching its highest overall point total since the 1998-99 school year. The national championships won by the women’s squash team and the men’s lightweight rowing team brought to 23 the number of consecutive years with at least one team or individual national champion. Of the 33 teams that competed in Ivy League sports, 18 finished first or second and 25 finished in the top three. No wonder it was impossible to pick just one outstanding senior male and female athlete for the end-of-year banquet. Instead, five senior men and five senior women were honored. Of course, the year wasn’t devoid of its tougher moments, including some of the most excruciating losses in the entire history of Princeton athletics. Princeton also saw two of its coaching legends leave the school after a combined 80 seasons. On balance, though, 2008-09 was an exceptional athletic year at Princeton
University. The women’s cross country team shattered the old record by winning Heps with 17 teams points with a 1-23-5-6 finish and then went on to win the Mid-Atlantic Regional on its home course and finish fifth in the NCAA finals – and Peter Farrell’s team wasn’t necessarily the best Princeton team of the year. Princeton teams won four Ivy League championships in the fall, including a sweep of the cross country races as the men edged Dartmouth for the team title shortly after the women won their race. The field hockey team went undefeated in the league to win the championship for the 13th time in 14 seasons. Princeton defeated Penn State in the opening round of the NCAA tournament and came within an overtime loss to Syracuse in the quarterfinals of reaching the Final Four. Princeton unveiled its brand-new Roberts Stadium soccer complex in the fall of 2008, and the facility immediately impressed everyone who visited in the inaugural season. The women’s team then went out and used Taylor Numann’s overtime goal against Penn to earn the program’s fifth Ivy League title in the last nine years. Princeton, who spent much of the year in the national Top 25, lost to West Virginia 2-1 in the NCAA tournament. The winter saw Princeton teams win three more Ivy championships, including men’s and women’s squash. The women then went on to win their third straight national championship at the Howe Cup. The men’s team continued arguably the best four-year run in the long history of the program with another dominant performance to win the league with a perfect record and reach the national finals. The men’s swimming and diving team recorded a perfect regular season and gave Florida a run in the annual Big Al Open, and then it capped the year with a brilliant wire-to-wire victory at the Ivy League championships. After winning a total of two events in the previous three years, Princeton won 12 events in the 2009 meet. Princeton finished 23rd at NCAAs with a handful of individual and relay All-America honors. Princeton ran off four more Ivy titles in the spring. The men’s lightweight rowing
team was ranked No. 1 to start the year and went through all seven opponents, including defending champion Cornell. Princeton won by open water in both the Eastern Sprints and the IRA national championships to complete its first sweep of the two titles since 1998. The men’s lacrosse team went 13-3 and won two games in NFL stadiums, defeating Johns Hopkins at M&T Bank Stadium and eventual-NCAA champ Syracuse at Giants Stadium. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they couldn’t solve Cornell in two meetings, a pair of losses that cost Princeton an outright Ivy title and a berth in the Final Four. The women’s tennis team returned to the NCAA team tournament and won an Ivy League title for the first time since 2000 by defeating six of seven Ivy teams and watching Yale, its only loss, lose on the last day of Ivy competition to allow Princeton to seal the automatic berth. Princeton also had an individual participant in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002, sending a doubles team to the postseason. The women’s outdoor track and field team won its first Ivy League outdoor title since 1989, jumping ahead of five-time defending champion Cornell, 145-130, after a strong finish in the 3000-meter run with two events remaining. The team earned eight All-Ivy awards, qualified 15 athletes for the postseason and sent two to the NCAA championships. There were other strong performances by Princeton teams who did not win Ivy titles, including an 18th-place finish at the NCAA championships by the women’s swimming and diving team, a Southern Division championship in men’s water polo, a second-straight NCAA tournament appearance in men’s hockey, a Gehrig Division co-championship in baseball, a quarterfinal appearance in women’s lacrosse, a second-place finish in men’s basketball and a program-record 17 wins in men’s fencing. As for the disappointments, Princeton teams suffered two for the ages. The men’s hockey team spent the entire year in the national rankings, mostly in the Top 10, and earned an at-large NCAA tournament bid for the first time in program history. The Tigers then led
Minnesota-Duluth 4-2 in the final minute of regulation in the opening round of the NCAA tournament in Minneapolis, but the first NCAA win for the Tigers vanished when the Bulldogs scored twice in the final 40 seconds, including the tying goal with five seconds left, and then won it in OT. As excruciating as that loss was, the men’s squash final against Trinity might have stung more. Princeton and Trinity, winner of 202 straight matches, slugged it out for six hours at Jadwin Gym in the national final, only to see the visitors win 5-4 by the oh-so-closest of margins. If there was consolation for Princeton, it was the knowledge that the 2009 men’s squash final is one of the greatest championship events in the history of all of college athletics. Glenn Nelson, who coached the Princeton men’s and women’s volleyball teams to the NCAA tournament and took the men to the Final Four, retired after winning 1,110 matches in his 58 total seasons. Bill Tierney, who led Princeton men’s lacrosse to six NCAA championships and 14 Ivy championships in 22 seasons, left to become the head coach at the University of Denver. Golfer Susannah Aboff, diver Katie Giarra, volleyball player Parker Hentritze, field hockey/ lacrosse player Holly McGarvie and distance runner Jolee van Leuven were named winners of the von Kienbusch Award for the outstanding senior female athletes. Hockey player Lee Jubinville, men’s lacrosse player Mark Kovler, swimmer Doug Lennox, distance runner Michael Maag and men’s squash player Mauricio Sanchez were named winners of the Roper Trophy as the outstanding senior male athletes.

William Winston Roper Trophy
Princeton Varsity Club
William Winston Roper Trophy Awarded annually to the a Princeton senior man of high scholastic rank and outstanding qualities of sportsmanship and general proficiency in athletics. Presented by Mrs. William W. Roper and the Class of 1902.
he William Winston Roper Trophy is the highest male student-athlete award at Princeton. The award was originally given by Mrs. William Winston Roper and the Class of 1902 in honor of Princeton’s famed football coach. It goes annually to “a Princeton senior male of high scholastic rank and outstanding qualities of sportsmanship and general proficiency in athletics.” It has been awarded annually since 1936. This year we had five winners, they were: Lee Jubinville (hockey), Mark Kovler (lacrosse), Doug Lennox (swimming), Michael Maag (cross country and track & field) and Mauricio Sanchez (squash). Lee Jubinville graduates as one of the most decorated players ever to play for the Princeton men’s hockey team. He led the team in scoring in two of his four seasons, including a magical junior year in which he helped lead Princeton to the Ivy League and ECAC championships and its first NCAA tournament appearance in 10 years. His performance led to his being named the ECAC and Ivy League Player of the Year, becoming the first Princeton player ever to win the ECAC year-end award. He was also named a first-team All-America, becoming one of four Princeton hockey players ever to achieve the honor, and was Princeton’s first candidate for the Hobey Baker Award, college hockey’s equivalent of the Heisman Trophy. Lee completed his career with 99 career points, leaving him 14th all-time at Princeton in scoring. Mark Kovler of the men’s lacrosse team became the first Princeton midfielder since 2000 to be named a first-team All-America and the third player in school history to earn All-America honors four times. Mark scored 34 goals as a senior for the second-highest single-season ever total by a Princeton midfielder, two off the record. Kovler finished his career with 91 career goals, third all-time by Princeton middies. Mark, whose junior year ended with a broken ankle, started his senior season slowly, with six goals in the first five games, but he would finish with 28 in the final 10. He also earned first-team All-Ivy League honors for the second time in his career and was a three-time All-Ivy League selection. He was recently the 12th draft pick for Major League Lacrosse. Prior to the arrival of Doug Lennox, Princeton had won three Ivy League men’ swimming and diving titles in the previous 10 years. During his four-year career, Doug guided the Tigers to three more titles and earned a multitude of individual honors. He led
Varsity Club News
the Tigers to the team championship in 2006 and 2007, and after falling short last year, he came back as a senior tri-captain and pushed Princeton to the 2009 title and a Top 20 national ranking. Doug won four Ivy League individual championships during his career in his top stroke, the butterfly. He swept the 100 and 200 in 2009 and helped Princeton to four relay titles, including all three freestyle relays. He earned first-team All-America honors after reaching an NCAA final in each of the last two years. He was also part of a trio of All-America relays. Michael Maag is one of the premiere distance runners in Princeton history. Michael has been an individual Heps cross country champion and runner-up, and he helped Princeton to three team cross country championships, including this past fall when he also served as captain. He has been an All-America, a two-time NCAA championships participant and a three-time first-team All-Ivy League selection, but his season did not end in the fall. Michael was also a double champion at the 2009 Ivy League Outdoor Heps, winning both the 1,500 and the 5,000. In previous seasons, he has won the 3,000 and been part of the distance medley-relay championship team. He has earned four first-team and two second-team All-Ivy awards in track and field and helped the team to the indoor track and field championship in 2007. He is the schoolrecord-holder for the indoor 3,000, and he owns the second-best time in program history in the indoor mile. Mauricio Sanchez guided the Princeton men’s squash team to arguably its greatest four-year era in program history. The 2006 Ivy League Rookie of the Year and 2007, 2008 and 2009 Ivy League Player of the Year, Mauricio never played below the No. 2 spot in his career and never lost an Ivy League match after his freshman season. He was a four-time first-team All-Ivy and fourtime first-team All-America honoree. He also led Princeton to four straight Ivy League men’s squash championships, an unprecedented feat for the program, and he led the Tigers to four straight national team finals. He reached the national individual semifinals in all four years of his career and was a national finalist in both 2007 and 2009.
Roper Trophy Winners Mark Kovler
PVC C. Otto von Kienbusch Award
Awards Banquet 2009 C. Otto von Kienbusch Award
Awarded annually to the a Princeton senior woman of high scholastic rank who has demonstrated general proficiency in athletics and the qualities of a true sportswoman. Presented in memory of C. Otto von Kienbusch ’06, friend and benefactor of women’s athletics at Princeton.
von Kienbusch Award Winners
Jolee Van Leuven
he C. Otto von Kienbusch Award is the highest female student-athlete award at Princeton. C. Otto von Kienbusch was a staunch opponent of the addition of women to Princeton University in the late ’60s. Once women were admitted to the school, several early women athletes made a trip to his home in upstate New York to try to win him over. They were so successful that he became an instant convert and supporter of women’s athletics at Princeton, subsequently endowing this award. This year the award will be shared by five winners; Susannah Aboff (golf), Kathrine Giarra (diving), Parker Henritze (volleyball), Holly McGarvie (field hockey and lacrosse) and Jolee VanLeuven (cross country and track & field). Susannah Aboff completed the rare feat of back-to-back individual championships at the Ivy League golf tournament. Her second Ivy title helped her earn an individual bid to the NCAA East Regional, making her the first Tiger since 2005 to appear in the NCAA postseason. Susannah’s Ivy championship also led her to the league’s inaugural Player of the Year honor and completed a four-year run of being on the All-Ivy team, making her the fifth Ivy golfer and second Tiger to earn an All-Ivy spot all four seasons. In Princeton’s last 23 tournaments, Susannah finished as the top Tiger 20 times. That run included eight individual championships at various events. Katie Giarra has been the Ivy League’s best and most consistent diver throughout her four-year career, and she was a leading force for Princeton in winning three Ivy League team swimming and diving titles during the last four years. Katie won both the one- and three-meter diving competitions in both 2007 and 2009 and earned Ivy League Championships Diver of the Meet honors in both years. Her performance scored big points for Princeton in winning the 2006, 2007 and 2008 Ivy League championships. Katie reached an individual career milestone in 2009 by qualifying for her first NCAA championship meet. She earned All-America honorable mention by placing 12th overall in the three-meter. Her finish helped Princeton to 18th place at the NCAA championships.
Parker Henritze graduates as one of the most decorated volleyball players in Ivy League history. The lone Princeton woman to earn both Ivy League Rookie of the Year and Player of the Year honors in her career, Parker is a four-time All-Ivy selection and a three-time first-team selection. She was named to the team unanimously in each of the last two years, including during her Player of the Year performance in 2007. A starting outside hitter since the beginning of her freshman year, Parker guided Princeton to a 45-11 Ivy League record in her four years. In 2007, she led the Tigers to the first 14-0 record in the Ivy League and the program’s first Ivy title since 2004 and the first NCAA tournament appearance since 2001. She has been among the Ivy League leaders in kills and aces throughout her career. During her autumns, Holly McGarvie was an integral part of four Ivy League championships and two NCAA quarterfinal appearances in field hockey. She was a three-time All-Ivy selection in field hockey, twice earning first-team honors. Holly, who played in every game for four years, finished with 69 points for her career, including a 29 as a senior. In the spring she led the Tigers to four NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament appearances. She was named the 2009 Ivy League co-Player of the Year, and is just the third player in the Princeton history to earn Rookie and Player of the Year honors during a career. McGarvie has been an All-Ivy honoree all four years and was named firstteam All-America last year. Holly has started in every game during her career, with 116 goals and 52 assists for 168 points. She ranks in the Top 10 in the program in points, assists and ground balls in a career. Jolee VanLeuven has been captain of both the cross country and the track and field teams. She is a five-time NCAA participant and multiple AllAmerica honoree and she has earned four All-Ivy League honors while being a three-time Academic All-Ivy honoree. Jolee has helped her teams to four Ivy League team titles in the two sports. As one of the leaders of the 2008 cross country team, that had the best team score in Ivy League Heptagonal history and then won the regional championship and went on to a fifth place finish in the NCAA championship, the best finish in Princeton history.

Ivy League teams and athletes have been able to compete and earn regional and national success while maintaining the integrity of the league’s commitment to having its athletes reflect and be integrated with the overall undergraduate population of each school. Jeff has been an ardent supporter of the Ivy League ideal of broad-based athletic participation on the eight different campuses. He has worked tirelessly behind the scenes, often acting as a mediator between University Presidents, Directors of Athletics and Coaches, always working on behalf of the student-athletes and doing so while demanding the highest levels of professionalism from himself and his staff.
Citizen-Athlete Award Presented by the Princeton Varsity Club, for selfless and noble contributions to sport and society. Our winner for 2009 is Robert Ehrlich, the captain of the 1978 Princeton football team who went on to Wake Forest University Law School and then to a career as a four-term United States congressman and finally the first Republican Governor of the state of Maryland in 36 years when he was elected in 2002. He is currently a partner in the law firm of Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge and Rice in Baltimore. While Governor, Robert Ehrlich made important strides in a wide-range of non-partisan issues for the state, including education, technology and the environment. As Governor, he signed the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Act, which led to a reduction in pollution in the Bay that was described by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as “the best thing for the Bay in a generation.” He was at the forefront of reform movements that led to an overhaul of the funding of the state’s poorest school districts and record state contributions to its Historically Black Colleges. He also devoted a great deal of energy while a Congressman and Governor to the needs of the disabled, especially in the area of employment. A dynamic and charismatic voice in the Republican Party, his name has been frequently mentioned for future political races, possibly on the national level. In addition to his legal career, he also lends his voice to several political radio shows. He also once appeared in an episode of the HBO show “The Wire,” playing a Maryland state trooper assigned to guard the Governor.

A PVC Banquet Testimonial I want to start by expressing my gratitude for the opportunity to speak here tonight. I will begin tonight by telling you a little bit about my journey to Princeton. I grew up in Long Island, a hot bed of lacrosse and develop a passion for the sport at an early age. In my Middle School yearbook, I wrote about how I aspired to come to Princeton and by my freshman year of high school, it looked like lacrosse would the ticket into my dream school. I hit a minor bump my sophomore year when I went down with an ACL tear. I took to the field again 5 months later ready to pick up right where I left off. Unfortunately only two weeks after my return, I went down again. I remember sitting on field, fully believing that infamous pop noise not only signaled another ACL tear but also the bursting of any hope I had of playing lacrosse as a tiger. To my surprise, a phone call soon came from head coach Chris Sailer offering a spot on her team. Unbeknownst to her, or even me at the time, that one phone call has changed the trajectory of my life. Playing lacrosse here these past four years has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Under the tutelage of our talented coaching staff and surrounded by an amazing group of young women, I have transformed as a player and person. Being a student-athlete has defined my experience at Princeton. My time here has been split between the classroom and 1952 stadium, between early mornings in the Jadwin pit and late nights in the depths of Firestone. The rigorous academic demands of Princeton made it clear that to be a successful student, I had to translate the qualities I utilize on the field—to apply the same discipline, work-ethic, and attitude toward improving to my work in the classroom. As a politics major, I have been able to enroll in courses taught by renowned political scholars and listen to guest speakers such as Kofi Annan and Condoleezza Rice. As a lacrosse player, I traveled to Australia to play the defending World Champions and I have found myself marked up against the best players in the country. That is what is amazing about our experience as Princeton athletes: although it certainly has not been easy, we have been able to achieve great success, both on the field and in the classroom. We have all been able to be students and athletes, without having to chose one or the other. Of course, there have been moments when I was jealous of those students who don’t play a sport. Times when the last thing I want to do is sit on a bus for 7 hours after a devastating loss or during midterm week when there is just not enough time
Varsity Club News
in the day to get everything done. Times when I dreaded trekking down to the weight room at 7 am on a snowy winter morning and times when I watched everyone gear up for a post-Dean’s Date celebration in Dod Courtyard as I headed down for practice. It was in those moments that I envied the average student; I envied their freedom and their extra hours of sleep. But then there are those times when I wouldn’t trade being an athlete here for anything in the world. Moments that only other athletes can relate to and appreciate. Moments that may seem trivial to anyone else, but to a competitor, they are the times you’ve spent all year working for. Those precious moments of athletic triumph and complete exhilaration. All of us have gathered a collection of these moments. I can close my eyes and I remember exactly how I felt when my team knocked off the number 2 ranked UVA in the first round of the NCAA tournament or our Dartmouth game this year when everything just seemed to click and our team looked unstoppable. Over the past four years, I have witnessed some of your greatest moments. I remember the electrifying feeling of watching the women’s squash team win their National Championships, and when the football team’s win over Yale earned the entire school a bonfire. I remember watching the men’s hockey team defeat Harvard last year on ESPN and when the women’s volleyball team brought home the Ivy league title. Those are the moments that athletes crave, and its our dedication to create moments like this that unites us together. It’s the feeling that gets you out to practice everyday, the one that pushes you to stay late and do extra sprints and the voice in your head that tells you to keep going even when you want to give up. It is in these moments that we learn about ourselves as individuals. And in the moments of triumph and failure that the greatest lessons of athletics are taught. Because I am an athlete, I know how to succeed under intense pressure and scrutiny. Because I am an athlete, I know when to place my personal ambitions on the shelf for the betterment of the group. Because I am an athlete, I have differentiated myself from peers as a person who knows what it means to work-hard,
sacrifice, preserve, and succeed. I’ve also come to realize that by being a Princeton tiger, I am apart of a tradition much larger than myself. With the simple action of putting on a uniform, we were all instantly accepted into the Princeton community of devoted alumni and avid fans. In being an athlete at Princeton, we became apart or something bigger than ourselves. Whether it be in the pool in DeNunzio the courts in Jadwin or on the ice at Baker rink, each one of has contributed to the legacy of success at Princeton. When we look back upon our time as a Princeton athlete, our memory will be a collection of these moments. Because as time passes, we will forget how many sprints we ran, what our overall record was, or how many points we scored. What we will remember however, are the times when you turn to your teammates and relish in the glory of the moment, whether it be a major success or a minor triumph, it is the people we shared those moments with and the feeling in our hearts that will stay with us forever. We will close our eyes and picture ourselves in our respective venues and what we looked like with the “P” on our jerseys. I do not leave here without athletic regrets, after all I wanted a couple National Championship rings, but what I have learned however, is that the rewards of being an athlete at Princeton are not measured like this. Instead I leave here with a bundle of priceless memories. I think I speak for all of us when I say, I am most grateful for the moments when there was nothing else in the world I wanted more than a Princeton tiger. Thank you for those moments and thank you for letting me speak here tonight.

A PVC Banquet Testimonial Good evening and welcome to all the studentathletes, coaches, administrators, parents, and alumni. I would like to thank the Princeton Varsity Club for giving me the opportunity to speak tonight. My name is Adam Berry and I am a (retired) WR on the football team. It is an incredible honor to be given the opportunity to speak in front of so many people who I deeply respect and who have positively affected my life. I am a strong believer in the value of athletics. I often tell people that I have learned more on the athletic field, the weight room, and the track than I have in any classroom. This is a significant statement given the amount I’ve learned academically in Princeton, but sport can be more difficult than any precept, problem set, or final paper. It is always more memorable and often times more practical in life. Keeping this in mind, I want to share with you three lessons sport has demonstrated to me during my time here which I believe are applicable to just about everyone in this room as well. The first lesson began with an incident in the weight room my freshmen year. We were in the middle of an offseason lift and moving through a leg circuit. The whistle had just blown and as I moved to the next station I saw Coach Jackson, our defensive backs coach. He was about to move to another station but made eye contact with me and decided to stay right at the station he was already at. As I did the exercise, already tired, and fatiguing more he started saying “faster” and “is that all you’ve got.” Somehow this didn’t give my legs any extra strength, so he moved on to saying “your brother is kicking your butt.” Now my brother plays football at Harvard and we are twins. He also plays the opposite position and incidentally, had just had a much better freshmen football season than me. Coach J had gotten to know both of us fairly well during the recruiting process and knew how competitive we were against one another. So of course he knew this got under my skin. He continued to chant those words or some variation of it to the rhythm of the reps I completed during the exercise. As I fatigued and got slower he spoke slower. As I got mad and snuck in a faster rep, he spoke faster. All the while I kept angrily thinking how bringing up my brother had little to do with an offseason workout. After my turn at the station was done, I made some smart alec comment to him between pants, but he laughed and simply said “Always compete.” That quote has always stuck with me, and my
coach’s way of getting that point across was actually quite a good bit of coaching for both football and life. Coach Jackson was and is completely right. Choosing to compete, even in something that doesn’t seem to matter is always half the battle. There are a lot of times when we are behind the 8 ball, could have plenty of excuses for not achieving a goal, or are at some disadvantage relative to our peers. But being a student-athlete at Princeton has prepared us to be successful despite long odds. We have had to compete against the best collegiate athletes by playing at the Division I level and against the best collegiate minds by attending such a prestigious institution. We have had to earn every grade, every minute of playing time, and every championship by choosing to always compete. Very few student-athletes can say they played against the best athletes while handling some of the most difficult classes and earning grades curved against some of the brightest minds. But the people in this room can which puts you in a position to fight for a win whether it’s in a tough job market, a difficult grad school application, or simply a tough position in life by always competing. The next thing we’ve learned is to handle adversity with poise. Whether it is playing in front of thousands of people, getting “corrected” by a coach, or playing from behind on the road the ability to be poised in an uncomfortable or difficult situation is probably the most underestimated trait of the Princeton student-athlete. I realized this particularly in my internship last summer. The company I worked at had meetings where it was the goal of senior management to basically publicly embarrass interns as they tried to present on their knowledge of the industry and see how the interns responded. You’d be surprised the amount of people who literally froze or could not speak in an environment like this. There were several other Princeton student-athletes in this room who were in the same program as myself, and many of us got put in this situation. Yet despite some of senior management’s best attempts, none of the Princetonians showed any panic or fluster. I’m sure many of us felt flustered, but outward appearances and the ability to proceed calmly and rationally were clearly traits which marked us. I have no doubt anyone else in this room would have been just as successful. After all, being late to a
workout or getting chewed out by coach is far more frightening than someone trying to throw you off with a couple of questions or brainteasers. Believe it or not this trait which bonds all of us, will be significant in the next phases of our lives. The final( and probably most important) lesson I will leave with all of you tonight is one that I am sure many of you have discovered without my need to point it out, and that is: If you need to count on someone, count on someone you have done something difficult with. There is no one on this campus that will have your back like a teammate. Whether you are from different states, countries, socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, political viewpoints, or anything else, there is nothing like playing a 4 years of a varsity sport with someone. It is not easy to be successful athletically and academically here. There is a lot of sacrifice and, at times, disappointment. But success is extremely attainable with the support of your closest peers. The tough times are always made better by your teammates and families because they have been there for you since day 1 and been by your side during this 4 year odyssey. And this is something that will not end tonight or on June 2. The relationships we have forged will no doubt serve us down the road because of the love, respect, blood, sweat, and tears that we have shared. So tonight celebrate all the trials and triumphs, the disappointments and surprises, the failures and successes because they have contributed so much to the people we are, and the people we will become. Congratulations to everyone and thank you for listening.

PVC Athletics Director’s Remarks
PVC Senior Student-Athlete Banquet
Remarks from Director of Athletics Gary Walters ’67 Tonight is one of the highlights of the year for Princeton Athletics. It gives us an opportunity to salute the efforts of the many people who allow Princeton to continue to be a model of intercollegiate athletics, and it does so under the festive eye of Reunions and the impending graduation. We began this event as a way to gather here one last time before graduation to look back at the last four years and honor the student-athletes of the graduating class, in this case the Class of 2009, and the role they have played in preserving and advancing the great tradition that is Princeton athletics. Princeton athletics, as we all know, predates all of us by many decades. In fact, the first intercollegiate athletic event in school history was actually a baseball game played between Princeton and Williams in 1864, 145 years ago. Princeton played in the first intercollegiate football game, 140 years ago against Rutgers. Women’s athletics followed co-education in the early 1970s, and there are dozens of pioneers who fought for equality in athletic opportunity to whom our current women athletes and coaches owe a collective debt. As a result of their efforts, Princeton has long been a national leader in women’s athletics, some of whom are with us here tonight. Princeton through the years has been the premier athletic program in the Ivy League. Our teams have now won the league’s unofficial allsports points standings for the last 23 years in a row, and Princeton has won 370 Ivy League championships since the league was formalized in 1956, easily the most in league history and in fact nearly one quarter of all league championships won. Princeton won 42 Ivy League championships in your four years, 12 more than the next highest total by a league school. As an aside, your 42 Ivy titles are nearly double the combined total of a certain school in West Philadelphia and a certain school in New Haven. Of the 33 teams that compete in an Ivy League sport, no fewer than 25 won at least one Ivy League championship in your four years, including no fewer than 11 this year. Two teams, the field hockey team and the men’s squash team, won the Ivy League title all four years. Of the 38 varsity teams at Princeton, 28 competed in the national championships for their sport at least once. Your class combined for 23 All-America selections and 107 All-Ivy League selections.
Varsity Club News
Princeton Athletics won the Ivy League’s unofficial All-Sports points championship each of your four years. Princeton also had at least one team or individual national championship each of your four years, accomplishing that feat for 23 straight years. At the same time, many teams sitting out here tonight were also on the short end of some great athletic events. Hopefully, as time goes on, the sting of those days will fade into the realization of how blessed you’ve all been to be able to compete in your chosen sport through four years of college. Hopefully, you realize that many of your teammates and classmates who went through those same experiences the last four years are now your friends forever, and that the lessons you’ve learned on our playing fields as students and athletes will likewise be with you forever. The fall has featured some extraordinary moments in recent Princeton athletic history, such as four Ivy field hockey championships, unprecedented success in cross country, the first 14-0 Ivy League women’s volleyball season ever and the christening of perhaps the country’s finest college soccer facility, Roberts Stadium, which played home to an Ivy title by the women’s team. The winter season saw exceptional performances by Princeton teams, including multiple Ivy League championships in both men’s and women’s swimming and diving and men’s and women’s squash, the first NCAA tournament appearance for the women’s hockey program, Ivy titles in women’s basketball and
men’s indoor track and a burst onto the national scene by the men’s hockey team, which won an ECAC title and made two NCAA tournament appearances. Princeton’s Class of 2009 has been a part of many great moments in the spring. A total of 10 different Princeton teams won Ivy League titles in the spring alone. In closing, let me share with you poignant and nostalgic words spoken by statesman Adlai Stevenson ’22 in addressing the Class of 1954, 55 years ago: “Your days are short here. This is the last of your springs. And now, in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of heaven. You will go away with old, good friends. Don’t forget when you leave why it is you came.”

A Message to Alumni From the Department of Athletics The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) clearly defines permissible recruiting activities involving enrolled and prospective student-athletes. Under NCAA guidelines, alumni may not provide “extra benefits” to ENROLLED STUDENT-ATHLETES that are not available to all other students at the University. Some examples of “extra benefits” are: • • • • • • •
Arranging, providing or co-signing a loan. Providing any financial support to cover educational and/or general expenses for Princeton. Providing any gifts or transportation. Providing a ticket to any entertainment event. Providing parents, family or friends of a student-athlete free admission to a banquet, dinner, or other function. Providing a meal to a student-athlete (except in your home on an occasional basis). Providing a meal to the parent(s) of a student-athlete.
As a general rule, the NCAA prohibits involvement by alumni (and other “boosters” or “representatives of an institution’s athletics interests”) in the recruitment of PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETES. Because of the Ivy League’s extensive and valued use of alumni in recruiting ALL students, however, the NCAA has granted a limited exception to some of its contact rules. Only members of the local SCHOOLS COMMITTEES are covered under this exception. If you are not a local Schools Committee member, you are prohibited from any contact with prospective student-athletes, including correspondence and telephone calls. If you are a local schools committee member, the following applies to your off-campus contact with prospective student-athletes: • All off-campus interviewing and recruiting activity must be carried out within Princeton’s regular admissions (i.e., local Schools Committee) structure and normal program for prospective local students. Again, if you are not a local Schools Committee member, you are prohibited from any contact with prospective student-athletes. • Any individual involved in interviewing prospective student-athletes through the local Schools Committee structure must also perform this function with non-athletic prospects. • Whenever you are in contact with prospects, or their parents or friends, it is a violation of NCAA and Ivy rules to pay for any meals, snacks or entertainment, except during Schools Committee or bona fide alumni group gatherings that involve both athletic and nonathletic prospects. • No on-campus contact by alumni with prospective student-athletes may take place. • It is an NCAA violation for alumni to engage in certain evaluation activities, such as picking up game films and transcripts, or contacting high school coaches, athletic directors or other employees regarding prospects. REMEMBER ... IMPROPER CONTACT OR ACTIVITY BY ALUMNI CAN RENDER A STUDENT, AND IN SOME CASES AN ENTIRE TEAM, INELIGIBLE FOR INTERCOLLEGIATE COMPETITION. If you have any questions, contact the Compliance Office at (609) 258-5312 or email@example.com.
