Bulldogs defeat Princeton

Describing Saturday’s game against Princeton is best expressed in the immortal words of Yogi Berra: “It’s like deja vu all over again.” Taking the Tigers 2-1 is no new story for the women’s soccer team. But while the Elis (4-3-1, 1-0 Ivy) muscled down Princeton (3-3-1, 0-1) by the same score as they did last […]

Elis hope to defeat Tigers despite injuries

Put a malnourished, pampered Tiger in the ring with a hardy, able-bodied Bulldog full of gusto and the desire to win. The Bulldog’ll take ’em any day. Although the women’s soccer team (3-3-1) is feeling less able-bodied than usual due to recent injuries, Wednesday’s home shutout of CCSU gives the Elis confidence as they host […]

Despite injuries, w. soccer finishes strong

Much like a Sour Patch Kids candy snack, the women’s soccer team’s weekend was at first sour, and then sweet. What began on a low note with a frustrating, unexpected loss against UMass (5-1) on Friday, 2-1, ended yesterday with a well-deserved 2-0 shutout of Harford (1-7-1). The Elis (2-3-1), who played skillfully despite Friday […]

Elis head to Midwest to face Drake, Creighton

The pastoral setting of Iowa and Nebraska, with their rolling crops of wheat, friendly country folk and equally friendly livestock, show promise for the Bulldogs. The Elis (2-2) will play Drake (4-4), a team that Bulldogs captain Jordan Reiger ’07 said “is very physical and likes to battle a lot,” today in Des Moines, Iowa, […]

Bulldogs finish first in invitational

Humidity and beating sun in league with a slick, mud-ridden race course — remnants of rain from the night before — as well as nearly 400 racers from a dozen other cross country squads were no match for the quick-paced men’s cross country team. The Bulldogs ran past all of the competition at the Connecticut […]

Elis ranked 8th by NCSA

Many Elis would be surprised to see their school ranked eighth or 23rd in any setting, but that is where Yale stands in this year’s NCSA Power Rankings. Yale finished eighth among Division I programs and 23rd among Divisions I, II and III in the National Collegiate Scouting Association’s yearly ranking system. Among Ivy League […]

W. crew recovers, defeats Radcliffe

Saturday’s events on the Housatonic were perfectly expressed by spectator Sarah Kabay ’08 when she said so eloquently: “Yale beasted past the [Radcliffe] squad.” Forsooth. The return of the No. 2 women’s crew team after last week’s defeat was sorely felt by Harvard’s No. 4 Radcliffe crew team as the Elis dominated in four of […]

W. crew streak ends against Princeton

On Saturday, the women’s crew team was introduced to a virtually foreign word: “defeat.” Despite the team’s season-long record of success, its winning streak has finally run out. Travelling down to Princeton this weekend, the Elis were ready to test themselves against the team that Yale head coach Will Porter predicted would take the Ivy […]

Protest calls for amnesty

One could almost feel the reverberations of Monday’s immigrant rights rally echoing off the buildings surrounding the New Haven Green. Joining a nationwide movement that mobilized hundreds of thousands of protesters in major U.S. cities Monday, the Connecticut Coalition for the Rights of Immigrants organized a protest in support of citizenship for immigrant workers. Coalition […]


W. crew beats two foes, stays undefeated

If “a man’s homeland is wherever he prospers,” as Aristophanes said, then the women’s crew team has been establishing an empire. The Elis skillfully won the Class of 1985 Cup against Dartmouth and Boston University, maintaining an undefeated record by winning four of the five races they entered. The only loss of the day was […]

W. crew rolls at Cayuga Cup race

It took about 19 seconds for Cornell and Syracuse to fully realize who they were messing with. In that same 19 seconds, the Elis had enough time to recollect, grab some air, and wait for the Big Red and the Orange to catch up to the finish line. And that’s not even the best of […]

Now that Citibank has confirmed rumors that it will open two new branches in New Haven County, Yale students with Citibank accounts may soon have easier access to banking services.
