We have been enjoying the wonderful weather that has finally arrived to the Princeton area. With warm weather has come many lawn games outside of Cannon and meals out on the back porch. It really is nice to be able to get outside and enjoy the company of fellow members!
With the warm weather comes the end of many sports seasons around the club. Without further ado, here the are the updates on our newest Gunners who claimed Ivy League Championships!
The women’s tennis team closed out an undefeated Ivy League season on Saturday and Sunday beating both Harvard and Dartmouth to claim their second title in the last three years. Gunners Clare McKee (So.), Gaby Pollner (So.), Tiffany Chen (So.), Nicole Kalhorn (Jr.), and Katrine Steffensen (Sr.) led the charge and we couldn’t be more proud of them.
Here is a picture of the champions!

In addition to the women’s tennis team, the women’s golf team won the Ivy League championship as well! The Tigers battled hard over the three rounds but that wasn’t enough to settle the championship. After 54 holes, the Tigers were tied with Harvard and needed a 19th hole on Sunday to claim the championship. Gunners Tenley Shield and Amber Wang birdied the 19th hole to help Princeton card a 2 under on the final hold while Harvard finished four over.
Congratulations to the whole team but specifically our GUnners who showed a lot of toughness throughout the weekend: Maya Walton (So.), Tiana Lau (Jr.), Amber Wang (Jr.), and Tenley Shield (Sr.).
