We are honored to host the Princeton University Director of Athletics, Mollie Marcoux Samaan '91.  Mollie, one of the top female student-athletes in Princeton University history and a woman who has played an integral role in the creation and management of the sports complexes of Chelsea Piers, is in her fourth year as Princeton University's Ford Family Director of Athletics.  During her first three years as Director of Athletics, Mollie has overseen a department that has won 36 Ivy League championships. 

Mollie graduated cum laude from Princeton in 1991 after majoring in history and writing her thesis on the history of women in sports from 1895 to 1946. She was a two-sport varsity athlete, earning four letters each in soccer and ice hockey. As a varsity ice hockey player, she was named Ivy League rookie of the year in 1988, earned first-team all-Ivy honors four times, was named the team's most valuable player three times, was elected team captain her senior year, was a first team all-Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) selection and a member of the ECAC team of the decade, and in 1999 she was named to the Ivy League's silver anniversary ice hockey team. When she graduated she was Princeton's all-time leading scorer and she still ranks first in most goals in a season with 35. She also earned second-team all-Ivy honors in soccer in 1987.
