Weather conditions were perfect on the ice Tuesday, Feb. 7, as two rivals entered the rink on the Midway Plaisance for the third annual Chairman's Cup broomball match between students of Alper House and Crown House.
Led by their team captains, Reid Stubbee (Crown House) and Jonathan Labib and Zach Goldaber (Alper House), the players brought out many boisterous fans who cheered their respective teams on to victory. Both teams have savored a win, with Crown House winning the match in 2010, and Alper House winning the 2011 game. This year, Alper House broke that tie, shutting out Crown by a final score of 4-0.
Crown House is one of eight houses that make up the South Campus Residence Hall. Named for Paula Hannaway Crown and James S. Crown, University Trustee and former Chairman of the Board of Trustees, the South Campus Residence Hall opened in the fall of 2009.
Alper House, one of eight houses that make up the Max Palevsky Residential Commons, is named in honor of Chairman of the Board of Trustees Andrew Alper (AB’80, MBA’81) and Sharon Sadow Alper (AB’80, JD’84). Palevsky opened in 2000.
The Chairman's Cup was the brainchild of Chairman Alper, who decided during a Trustee dinner in June 2010 to challenge Crown to a match.
