If the NCAA basketball tournament is the Big Dance, the College Squash Association tournament is the minute waltz. At the end of this weekend, one squad will rise up from the pack of eight to claim national championship glory. The single-elimination tournament commences Friday in the Brady Squash Center. The Yale men’s squash team (10-2, […]

Crimson men’s squash flogs Elis

The nationally ranked No. 2 men’s squash team stumbled out of the gates and could not make up an early deficit to rival No. 3 Harvard Saturday at the Brady Squash Center. The Elis’ even seeds were swept in the first round of matches en route to a 2-7 loss in the contest for the […]

M. squash can almost taste its first Ivy title in 14 years

The Bulldogs are one contest away from satiating a 14-year hunger. This Saturday, the main course comes to Brady Squash Center in the form of Harvard. The Yale men’s squash team (8-1, 4-0 Ivy) will have to fight it out in all its matches to lay claim to its first Ivy League title since 1990. […]

M. squash squishes No. 4 Tigers, 6-3

A Tiger may have won the battle, but the Elis won the war. In front of a packed house, including Princeton (3-1, 2-1) squash alumni, at the Jadwin Gym courts in Princeton, the Elis (8-1, 4-0 Ivy) trounced the orange and black, 6-3. Even more important than knocking off the No. 4 team in the […]

Elis ready to serve it up vs. Tigers

Elis fail to mount come-back vs. No. 1 Trinity

The nationally ranked No. 2 men’s squash team fell short of victory but put up a good fight against No. 1 Trinity last night at the Brady Squash Center.

M. squash set to turn up the heat

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen — or the squash court as the case may be. The nationally ranked No. 2 men’s squash team (5-0, 2-0 Ivy) defended its home courts at the Brady Squash Center last weekend, dispatching Stanford (7-6), Denison (5-5), Dartmouth (4-2, 0-1) and Cornell (4-3, 2-3) […]

Long weekend entails a test of stamina for men’s squash

When the men’s squash team last took to the courts of Brady Squash Center, an Iraqi dictator was still at large, Yale had two Dicks at the top of its management, and the “Bungles” were still in the NFL playoff picture. The No. 2 Elis’ 9-0 victory over Williams College Dec. 3 seems more like […]

Bulldogs quash Williams in season opener

There is an aphorism printed on the walls of Brady Squash Center that reads “Play hard, good things will happen.” For the Yale men’s squash team, this message rings closer to home than for most other visitors to the Brady Center. After going 17-2 last season, the Eli missed the Ivy League title by one […]

Health auction fundraises

At the right price, you can have personal hip-hop breakdance lessons, the VIP section of Funktion nightclub complete with Dom Perignon, or a “beef and beer dinner” at the home of a Yale Medical School anatomy professor. Students and faculty of the Yale health professional schools culminated a week of fundraising for local charities yesterday […]


Elis stand vs. two top 10 teams

The women’s hockey team completed a weekend of top ten competition, and, despite only collecting one point in the standings, it was a huge confidence booster for the young Elis. Saturday at Schneider Arena, the Bulldogs managed to keep nationally ranked No. 6 Providence off the scoreboard until midway through the second period, despite three […]

Bulldogs, Cantabs bring trash talk to another level

Next weekend, the football team will compete against rival Harvard at the Yale Bowl. But C.J. May wants the Bulldogs to prevail not only on the gridiron, but also in a less glorious arena: trash dumpsters. May, the University recycling coordinator, is arranging a recycling competition for the current school year. The contest will measure […]
