Jen Hoy '13 and mother Rosemary Hoy. Jen Hoy is part of the U.S. Under-23 women's national team camp this month.

• The Tigers hosted their annual banquet after their spring games and honored the eight-member senior class (pictured below), including Caitlin Blosser, Jennifer Hoy, Alison Nabatoff, Claire Pinciaro, Rachel Sheehy, Rebecca Shmoys, Kristyna Smith and Kristin Watson. There were more than 100 people in attendance including players, coaches, parents, Academic-Athletic Fellows and friends of the program.

• Princeton’s annual team awards were announced at the team banquet. Claire Pinciaro ‘13 won the Kathy Kobler Garrett Award, named in honor of Kathy Kobler "Kobs" Garrett '91.  The award is presented annually to that member of the Princeton varsity women's soccer team whose generosity, positive attitude, genuine consideration for others, and quiet energy makes her essential to the success of the team.

The team's most valuable player award went to Jennifer Hoy. Jen adds the MVP award to the Ivy League Player of the Year and second-team NSCAA All-America awards.  She was most recently drafted into the NWSL's Chicago Red Stars, the new women's professional league and after a preseason camp, will rejoin the squad after graduation.  In the meanwhile, she was called up with the U-23 National Team and scored a goal in the match on April 16 against the US U-20 squad.

• Rising seniors Gabriella Guzman '14 and Diane Metcalf-Leggette '14 and rising junior Gabrielle Ragazzo '15 were named captains for the 2013-14 year.

• Jen Hoy ‘13 and the U.S. Under-23 women’s national team is about to start training in Chula Vista, Calif. Hoy is one of 24 players who will be part of the team’s camp from May 11-18.

• Princeton alumna Diana Matheson ’08 is playing for the Washington Spirit of the NWSL, and she has some interesting living arrangements near the team’s home field in suburban Maryland.

• Former Tiger Barb Previ ’12 is part of the U.S. Deaf Soccer women’s player pool. The team’s next event is at the Deaflympic Games in Bulgaria in July. More information can be found at www.usdeafsoccer.com.

• The Princeton women’s soccer program will host summer camps for those in grade four through incoming college freshmen. The Tiger Day Camp, for those entering grades four through seven, will run July 8-12 and is geared toward travel players who want to improve all parts of their game. The Elite Overnight Camp, for those entering grades seven through their first year of college, will run July 21-24 and is aimed at those intending to play in college. Both camps will be run by Princeton head coach Julie Shackford and the Tiger staff, along with Princeton and other Division I players and coaches.
