Ryan Ambler started his career by doing something that hadn't been done at Princeton in 12 seasons and has only been done three times ever in school history. As a result, he's pulled in the first Ivy League Rookie of the Week honor for 2013.

Ambler had a four-point debut for Princeton, who opened the season with a 10-7 win over Hofstra Saturday in the rain on Long Island.

Ambler had a goal and three assists in the game, of which the goal and two of the assists came in the second quarter as Princeton snapped a 3-3 tie and took the lead for good.

The last Princeton freshman with four points in the first game of his freshman year was Ryan Boyle, who had four assists against Johns Hopkins in 2001. The only other freshmen with four points in Game 1 of the season were Jesse Hubbard (3G, 1A in 1995) and Jason Buttles (2G, 2A in 1993).

Princeton will play in the San Francisco Fall Lacrosse Classic this coming Oct. 12. The Tigers will take on Virginia at Kezar Stadium in the event, which benefits a variety of innovative sports and education programs for under-resourced children in the Bay Area.

The Princeton-Virginia game will mark the fifth time that the Bay Area Youth Sports Foundation has hosted two Division I teams in the fall.

Princeton and Virginia have combined to win 11 NCAA championships and play in the NCAA championship game 17 times. Princeton defeated UVa in overtime to win both the 1994 and 1996 NCAA titles.

Tom Schreiber has been named to the Tewaaraton Trophy preseason watchlist.

Schreiber, a 2012 first-team All-America, had two goals and an assist against Hofstra.

Forest Sonnenfeldt will miss the entire 2013 season with an ankle injury.

Sonnenfeldt had 17 goals and six assists last year as a junior. He will return to Princeton next year for his senior season.
