After an absolutely incredible season women’s soccer fell to UCLA 3 – 1 this past Saturday in the NCAA Division 1 Quarterfinals. Despite the loss, this season marks a historic run for Women’s soccer, placing them in the Elite 8 for the first time in over a decade. Cannon’s own Vanessa Gregoire was awarded Ivy League Offensive Player of the year and will finish her career as Princeton’s all time assist leader, with 27.

After a difficult defeat in last year’s finale, Cannon was poised for redemption this season. We assembled a star-studded team that proved to be a dominating force. On average, Cannon outscored its opponents by 4 goals a game, and only allowed three goals on the whole season. Though competitive and fun, each match was easily won in the end by our squad. Cannon carried this trend throughout the season and into the playoffs, where we capped the season with a 5-0 victory in the championship game.
Cannon members who had past soccer experience flocked to each game and contributed important goals throughout the season. Captain Steven Sobel led our recruitment and promotion of the team, which was key to the championship bid. Steven’s efforts earned him the MVP title.
