Monday, December 15, 2008 Begins Year-End Countdowns

The Princeton Office of Athletic Communications has selected its top 12 athletes and top 12 athletic events of the 2008 calendar year (this is Princeton stuff only, so don't look for LeBron James or Michael Phelps), and the countdown now appears on

The No. 12 athlete is softball's Jamie Lettire; the No. 12 event is the induction of women's lacrosse coach in the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

To offer some perspective, Princeton has roughly 1,000 student-athletes who compete in roughly 650 intercollegiate athletic events each year. Add to that all of the events that aren't actual contests (such as Sailer's Hall of Fame induction), and you have even more to consider.

To be in the Top 12 of either list, then, is pretty impressive. Again, this is Princeton OAC generated and only for the year 2008.

Let us know your feedback.
