Reflection on the rites of spring

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I sure was feeling sick around 11:30 Monday night, as Duke University cruised to an 82-72 win over Arizona, and head coach Mike Krzyzewski cut down the nets for the third time in the last 10 years. It might have been the platter of ribs and chicken wings, […]

For third time, Jeff Hamilton an All-American

Already a Hobey Baker Finalist and a member of just about every postseason all-star team, Yale hockey forward Jeff Hamilton ’01 added to his trophy cabinet Wednesday when he was named a first-team All-American. Hamilton became the first Yale player ever to earn three All-America selections in his career. He is also Yale’s sole first-team […]

W. golf places 9th at William and Mary

The women’s golf team blew the dust off their clubs and teed it up for the first time this spring with hopes of sunny skies and dry fairways at the William and Mary Invitational. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, the bad weather of the Northeast made the trip south along with them. Over two rainy days […]

Bittersweet farewell for men’s hockey’s seniors

Yale hockey captain Ben Stafford ’01 has spent a lot of time scratching his head over the last few weeks. So has head coach Tim Taylor and just about everyone else connected with Yale hockey. But no matter how much anyone contemplates the Elis’ bizarre 2000-01 season, the simple reality may very well be that […]

Luke Earl ’02 elected men’s hockey captain

Forward Luke Earl ’02 was elected the 107th captain of the Yale men’s hockey team by his teammates at a meeting Monday night. Earl, who hails from nearby Simsbury, Conn., will take over the captain’s insignia from graduating forward Ben Stafford ’01. The decision was made official yesterday in a news release from the Yale […]

Hockey captain Stafford knighted by UHL

When men’s hockey captain Ben Stafford ’01 skated off the ice after leading his team to an emotional 5-4 win over Dartmouth Feb. 24, New Haven fans thought they had seen the last of him as a hockey player. But thanks to the UHL’s New Haven Knights, that might not be the case. The Knights […]

M. hockey swept out of playoffs

The roller-coaster ride that was the 2000-01 Yale men’s hockey season came to a screeching halt last weekend, as the Bulldogs dropped back-to-back games to Harvard at the Crimson’s infamous Bright Center in the first round of the ECAC playoffs. The pair of losses — 5-4 last Friday and 7-4 last Saturday — came in […]

Jeff Hamilton named Ivy Player of the Year

The men’s hockey team’s season ended last weekend in Boston, but that hasn’t stopped a number of Bulldogs from carting home some postseason hardware. Forward Jeff Hamilton ’01 led the way, becoming the first Eli ever to be recognized as a Hobey Baker Finalist twice in his career. Hamilton also earned the prestigious designation — […]

Men’s hockey clinches Ivy League title, third in the past four years

A loss to archrival Harvard and a tie against last-place Brown was not exactly what the men’s hockey team had in mind for the ECAC’s final regular-season weekend, but it was still enough to claim a third Ivy League championship in four years. The Bulldogs (14-14-1, 10-10-1) finished the season in eighth place in the […]

Men’s hockey sets sights on home ice

To say that conventional wisdom is going against the men’s hockey team this weekend would be an understatement. Then again, the Bulldogs about as far as it gets from conventional. Yale (14-13-0, 10-10-0 ECAC) concludes its roller coaster regular season with a pivotal road test at third place Harvard (12-14-1, 11-8-1) tonight (7:00, WYBC-AM 1340) […]

Hoops 101: Heckling for Dummies

We all know that it’s been an awfully long time since the Bulldogs’ men’s basketball team has been involved in games as important as those against Pennsylvania and Princeton this weekend. But that doesn’t mean that Yale fans can’t act like Bobby Knight at his finest. In order to compensate for the inexperience, as well […]

Yale’s scoring king has 164 points and counting

Jeff Hamilton ’01 was kicking himself all night Friday. On a night when he passed Mark Kaufmann ’93 atop Yale’s all-time scoring list and helped his team to a pivotal 7-6 win over Vermont, Hamilton could only think about one play. With the record in hand and the game ticking away, the senior Hobey Baker […]
