Congratulations to Our Student-Athletes

Princeton Day School is pleased to announce that three of our student-athletes, Maddie Coyne '18, Donovan Davis '18, and CJ Uche '18, have signed letters of intent to play soccer at the university level.

Maddie Coyne will play soccer for George Washington University next year. Maddie was named 2018 Mercer County Prep Player of the Year and is a three-time Mercer 33 honoree. As captain, Maddie led her team to four consecutive Prep State Championships during her years at PDS. Coach Pat Trombetta noted, "Maddie is a strong leader and the backbone of our defense. She has been a mainstay on our team that has achieved so much. We are so thankful for all she has done for PDS soccer."

Donovan Davis will be playing soccer for Elon College beginning in the fall. Donovan was named 1st team All Prep State, and he and his team were the NJISAA State Champions in 2016. Coach Ollie Hilliker said about his player, "Donovan is a hard-nosed competitor who we have relied on in our midfield for the last three years. He's gritty, tough, and gets the job done when it's needed. We'll miss him."

CJ Uche will play soccer for Bucknell next year. CJ was named 1st team All Prep State, and was on the 2016 team with Donovan Davis that nabbed the NJISAA State Champion title. Coach Hilliker noted, "CJ is a quiet leader who raised our level from the first time he stepped on the field with a PDS uniform. He's a great young man who is a pleasure to coach."
