Good afternoon Gunners!
We’ve had a full weekend here at the club. Starting on Friday, we had a club formal that was 007 themed. Members and guests alike enjoyed great food, a photobooth, awesome music, and many memories. Following that exciting event we hosted a semi-formal on Saturday night that was disco themed. Again, delicious food and fun memories were had all around! Today, Lawnparties were a hit up and down the entire street. We offered a brunch to members before the day got started, and DJ Relley Rozay, a Cannon alum, performed for the student body on the front lawn. We’re also open to the street later tonight to round out a full weekend! Some photos from the events will be available sometime later this week and I’ll be sure to post a few as soon as possible to display the awesome weekend.
Next up on this week’s news is an update on our football stars. This weekend, Stephen Carlson went to Cleveland for a 3-day training camp with the Browns. John Lovett also went to a 3-day training camp, flying out to Kansas City to put some work in with the Chiefs. Jesper Horsted went to Chicago this past weekend to work with the Bears, and is looking to potentially sign with the team some point in the near future. The boys are looking to join three Princeton alumni from the past few years in the NFL, bringing more Ivy League success to the field. With a bit of similarity to our current players, two alumni found success with the Browns and Chiefs. Alumni Mike Catapano was drafted in the 7th round of the NFL draft in 2013 to Chiefs. After two years in Kansas City, he played two years with the Jets. He then signed with the Texans. Alumni Seth DeValve was drafted to the Browns in the fourth round in 2016 as a tight end. Most recently, alumni Chad Kanoff signed with the Cardinals in 2018. Hopefully we will see our 2019 Cannon boys out on the field as well!
In other athletic news, the women’s lacrosse team advanced to the Ivy League Championship by beating Cornell on Friday. Today, they beat Penn for the second time this season to become Ivy League Champs! The selection show for the NCAA Tournament is later tonight, as the women await their next matchup to come this week.
Another major accomplishment comes from our very own basketball star Sydney Jordan, but this time in academics! Jordan, a philosophy major with a certificate in Near Eastern studies, has been awarded the Pyne Prize. This prize is awarded to the senior “who has most clearly manifested excellent scholarship, strength of character, and effective leadership.” Having recently completed her thesis on corporate social responsibility, Jordan is looking to join a non-profit organization through the Princeton Project 55 Fellowship or work at a law firm.
That’s all for now for Cannon news, but I’ll be back next week with more updates!
