Good evening Gunners!
With the end of the semester comes the end of fall sports seasons, and our teams have made us proud this year.
The football team ended the season 8-2 with some big wins on the season. Many Cannon members finished the season with some big awards, which are listed below.
- Kevin Davidson and Jeremiah Tyler- John P. Poe/Richard W. Kazmaier Award for good moral character
- Will Johnson- Class of 1952 Award for special teams
- Andrew Griffin- Richard W. Colman Award for academic excellence
- Joey Demarco- Charles W. Caldwell Memorial Award for most improved
- TJ Floyd and Jake Strain- The Henry T. “Hank” Towns h82 Award for greatest devotion
- Graham Adomitis and John Orr- Ronald A. Rogerson Award for best team spirited
- Ryan Quigley- Dr. Harry Roemer McPhee Award for qualities of durability and fortitude
Additionally, many of the Cannon members received all-Ivy honors. Jeremiah Tyler was the only unanimous first-team all-Ivy selection, with junior member Delan Stallworth joining him on the first team as well. Collin Eaddy and Jacob Birmelin were second-team selections, and Kevin Davidson, Joey Demarco, TJ Floyd, and James Johnson were all honorable mention picks. Jeremiah Tyler has also been selected as one of two finalists for the Bushnell Cup, the winner of which will be announced tomorrow night.
The women’s volleyball team ended their season this past Friday with a loss in the first round of the NCAA tournament to #11 Penn State. Despite the loss, the Tigers still won the Ivy League Championship and made their third NCAA appearance in 4 years.
The end of the fall sports season marks the beginning of the winter sports, and Princeton basketball is now in full swing. My sports updates from here on out will be focusing on both the men’s and women’s teams as we follow numerous Cannon members in their seasons. The women’s ice hockey team is also in full swing, as is swimming and diving.
In hockey news, the women’s team is ranked #6 nationally and they are currently 10 and 3 overall. House Manager and senior Carly Bullock has recently been selected to participate in the USA Hockey winter training camp this upcoming week as she looks to make the USA team.
This past weekend, the club had a formal event that was enjoyed by members and guests alike. Social chairs Will Gladson and Taylor Baur put on a Wizard of Oz themed event, and Bill and the kitchen staff provided guests with a delicious meal. There was music, a photobooth, and plenty of food and drinks to go around.
With winter break coming next week, the club will be relatively quiet until January and February. Once February comes around though, events will be in full swing! Bicker and elections are up next on Cannon’s plate and many exciting changes are in store.
Wishing everyone a safe and fun holiday with family and friends!
