The Princeton Tigers return their entire roster from their 22nd team finish last season. Head coach Jason Vigilante will rely on veteran leadership to guide his team in 2019. Leading the squad will be senior Conor Lundy who has a sub-14 5k personal best and finished 62nd two years ago at nationals. Breakout steeplechaser Ed Trippas will likely have a stronger presence this fall as well as upperclassmen Gannon Willcutts, Matt Grossman and Jeremy Spiezio.
Rounding out the roster will be three incoming freshmen led by Camren Fischer who ran a 4:09 mile and 8:55 3200 his senior year. Jack Stanley and Connor Livingston may also have an impact on the top seven in 2019.
