April 10, 2002: Snapshot



Up in the air

By Matthew Winn ’03

Geza Szigethy ’04, Jacob Weiss ’03, and Dave Sachs ’02, officers of Princeton’s Juggling Club, practiced their moves in Dillon Gym in early March. Szigethy, who is from Bainbridge Island, Washington, and plans to major in chemistry, says, “Why juggling? I have no idea.” But he admits it’s a good way to relax. Weiss, a computer science major from Birmingham, Alabama, started juggling with his brother, Daniel ’01, after they read a story about it in 3-2-1 Contact magazine when they were kids.

According to all three, juggling quickly passes from quirky hobby into all-consuming obsession. Says Sachs, a physics major from Philadelphia, “When I’m not juggling — which is about 99 percent of the time — I am probably sleeping or working on my thesis. Or at least I ought to be sleeping or working on my thesis.” The club puts on an annual scripted and choreographed show and appears at a number of smaller events throughout the year.
