Earning a maximum twelve varsity letters across three sports, this pioneer turned heads as women's athletics at Princeton built on its small foundation of seven sports in the mid-1970s. Goodfellow led the lacrosse team in scoring three out of four years and helped the squash team to four Howe Cup titles after taking the game up for kicks as a freshman. The squash team benefited from her experience from 1991-1994, when she returned to coach.

The 2004-05 recipient of Princeton's top athletic award, Pillon, a naturally gifted athlete, was a two-sport Tiger during her collegiate days, playing both lacrosse and soccer (the former being her true passion). On the lacrosse field, she recorded an impressive 104 goals and 150 points. In both her junior and senior seasons, Pillion was named first-team All-America. Now, she is a member of the U.S. touring team, which won the Prague Cup this past June, and a volunteer assistant coach at Princeton.

An Olympian before even reaching college, Corcione is regarded as Princeton's first great female athlete. Corcione, who swam in the 1968 games in Mexico City, was a member of the university's first women's squad that competed in the Eastern Women's Swimming League after Princeton became coeducational in 1969. As a Tiger, she set national records in both the 100-yard butterfly and 100-yard freestyle. In 1973, with her fellow pioneer teammates Carol Brown ('75), Barb Franks ('76) and Jane Freeman ('75), Corcione won the 200-yard freestyle relay, setring yet another world record.

Hubbard's arrival in Princeton further asserted the university's presence as a national men's lacrosse powerhouse. As a sophomore, he scored the game-winning goal in overtime to catapult the Tigers to a 13-12 win in the 1996 NCAA championship game. That title was the first of three-straight for Princeton lacrosse. The MLL-bound Hubbard racked up a school-record 163 career goals in orange and black.

Elias burst through holes and into the Ivy record books in the mid-90s, providing the driving force behind Princeton's 1992 league title. His 320 points scored and 4,208 rushing yards rank third and fifth in Ivy history, respectively. In the Princeton record books, he's all alone at the top in rushing yards per game (299), season (1731) and career.

Kazmaier's 1951 season was one of the finest ever by a Princeton athlete. Against then-undefeated Cornell, the tailback scored five touchdowns (three pass, two run) and piled up 360 yards of total offense en route to a 53-15 Princeton win. The rout was just one of that season's many highlight reels for Kazmaier, who that year won Princeton's first (and only) Heisman trophy.

Recognized as the first great American hockey player, Baker was a three-sport athlete at Princeton before the school's regulations forced him to drop it down to two. No sweat for Baker: he went on to lead the Tigers to two national titles in hockey and one in football. The award for the country's top collegiate player now bears his name, and, after his death in World War I, his legacy of being an athlete and a gentleman remains at Princeton.

U.S. Senator, presidential candidate, Olympic gold medalist: Bill Bradley boasts quite a few honors. But the three-time All-America hoopster may have shined brightest in orange and black, averaging 30.2 points per game and leading the Tigers to an Ivy League title in each of his four seasons before graduating as a Rhodes Scholar.
