Lively senior powers rowers

Rachel Jeffers ’07 is one of those rare types you meet once in a while and almost never forget. With her warm voice, charming personality and striking resemblance to Cameron Diaz, you’d never know that she has not only rowed on the women’s national team and completed in a triathalon while you were complaining about […]

W. soccer rallies for win in R.I.

In 1849, English poet Thomas Babington Macaulay wrote, “The Puritan hated bear-baiting, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it gave pleasure to the spectators.” In 2006, it seems the descendants of old Elihu may have had a change of heart. In their final game of the season this Saturday, the Bulldogs […]

Offensive woes plague w. soccer

These are the times that try the women’s soccer team’s soul. Winning could have meant weeks more of soccer to come, but losing has cost it all hope. After making strides against Penn on Oct. 21, the Elis (6-7-2, 2-3-1 Ivy) lost to Columbia (9-4-3, 5-0-1), 2-0, this past Saturday at Reese Stadium. With the […]

Unbeaten Lions come to Reese

In the depiction of lion-baiting on the Shield of Achilles, the crowd roots for the bulldog and not for the lion. The same should go for women’s soccer this weekend. With the future of their season on the line, the Yale Bulldogs (6-6-2, 2-2-1 Ivy) will battle against the Ivy League’s top team, the Columbia […]

Penn, Yale unable to find net

Every team knows that there will be frustrating games, where the final score does not reflect the caliber of a team’s play. But even so, Saturday will be hard to swallow for weeks to come for the women’s soccer team. On Saturday at Reese Stadium, the Bulldogs (6-6-2, 2-2-1 Ivy) tied Penn (7-4-2, 1-3-1) 0-0 […]

Starr injured, w. soccer stunned, 3-1

As Ithaca gets colder and colder this winter, the Yale women’s soccer team gets further and further from its goal and from where the team knows it deserves to be. Last Saturday, the Elis (6-6-1, 2-2 Ivy) handed Cornell (2-9-1, 1-3) its first victory, 3-1. Upsetting the Bulldogs gave the Big Red its first win […]

W. soccer vies to reclaim Ivy lead

As far as the numbers go, when the Cornell Big Red, loser of nine straight games, is placed side by side with Yale women’s soccer, it just doesn’t seem so big at all. Yet with their Ivy record at stake, the Bulldogs can’t let any game slip. Remember David and Goliath? Well, so do they. […]

W. soccer dips to third

It’s bad enough having to spend the weekend in middle-of-nowhere, New Hampshire. But it’s even worse when you come home with nothing but a loss to show for it. The women’s soccer team (6-5-1, 2-1 Ivy) gave up an undefeated Ivy League record on Saturday when the Elis fell to Dartmouth (7-3-1, 3-0), 1-0, at […]

Sailors coast through four events

If Magellan had set his sights on circumnavigating New England rather than the whole world, and had done so this past weekend rather than in 1511, he would have looked a lot like the Yale sailing team. The Elis were all over the map this weekend, reeling in trophies at four different regattas — the […]

Red hot Elis will take on Big Green

As far as campfires go, if it’s too green, it won’t burn. But Yale women’s soccer will look to light up the biggest green of them all this weekend. Coming off a win against Fairfield on Wednesday, the Bulldogs (6-4-1, 2-0 Ivy) will grapple with the Dartmouth Big Green (6-3-1, 2-0) for dominance in the […]

W. soccer shuts out Crimson

It is ironic that Saturday was Youth Soccer Day at Ohiri Field, because Yale’s handy destruction of the Harvard defense was certainly no child’s play. This weekend, the Bulldogs (5-4-1, 2-0 Ivy) shut out the Harvard Crimson (1-8-1, 1-1), 1-0, on the Crimson’s home turf. With leading goal-scorer forward Mimi Macauley ’07 out with a […]

W. soccer vies with Harvard for No. 1 spot

The tide of women’s soccer has swept in the good along with the bad. With a tied record and a Harvard game looming over the weekend, the Elis do not have time to play around. On Saturday, the Elis (4-4-1, 1-0 Ivy) will take on the Crimson (1-7-1, 1-0) in a match that could help […]
