Elis take on nation’s best

The University of North Carolina women’s soccer team is not a dynasty. It’s the dynasty. “UNC is unquestionably one of the top teams every year and the success of winning so many NCAA championships has made them one of the most renowned sports programs in the country, men’s or women’s,” midfielder Lindsey Weening ’06 said. […]

Elis hit Tobacco Road

A standout 2004 season saw the women’s soccer team post a program-record 5-0 start. A trip down South might make the same start a little more difficult in 2005. The Bulldogs kick off their 2005 campaign this weekend at the North Carolina Soccer Classic. The Elis take on No. 8 Duke on Friday before playing […]

Elis drop two to Bears to close out season

The softball team is probably more than ready to start thinking about next season. The Elis (14-28, 3-11 Ivy) concluded their season on a sour note, dropping both games of their final doubleheader to Brown (15-18-1, 6-8) May 1 in New Haven. After losing the first game 5-0, the Bulldogs extended game two into extra […]

Softball comes up one run short of a sweep

It seems that no matter how close the softball team gets to doing everything right, something inevitably goes wrong. The Elis (14-26, 3-9 Ivy) went back to their splitting ways Monday against Penn (14-25, 4-10). Despite the Bulldog batsmen putting up far more offense than they have in recent weeks, the usually stingy Yale pitching […]

Softball held scoreless vs. Princeton

The fact that the softball team was playing the best squad in the Ivy League and facing two of the most dominant pitchers in the conference could be an excuse for the Elis’ most recent losses, suffered to Princeton this weekend. But the Bulldogs have dropped seven of their last eight games, and at this […]

Softball tries to put it together vs. Killer Ps

Throughout this season, the softball team has shown itself capable of stifling defense, strong hitting and lights-out pitching — it has just been a question of putting it all together at the same time. With only four opponents left on the schedule, now would be an ideal time for that synthesis. This weekend, with the […]

Bats wake up, but softball still splits doubleheader

Even the most talented softball teams would find it hard to win games when their pitchers give up five earned runs, their fielders make five errors and several starters are benched with food poisoning. So the fact that the struggling Yale softball team could win under those conditions might be a sign of the long-awaited […]

Skidding softball loses four games

If the softball team came into this weekend hoping to stop their trend of splitting doubleheaders, new goals may be in order. The Elis (12-22, 2-6 Ivy) dropped all four of their Ivy League contests this weekend and are now tied with Brown for last in the league. On Saturday, Columbia (17-23, 4-4) destroyed the […]

Softball looks for consistency in N.Y

If softball is a mental game, the Bulldogs are looking to show why they go to Yale. The Elis (12-18, 2-2 Ivy) make the tour of the New York Ivies this weekend, with a doubleheader against Columbia (14-22, 1-3) Saturday and another twin bill against Cornell (16-15, 2-2) Sunday. While the conference season is just […]

Fickle softball splits again

Mark Twain once said, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a minute or two.” The Yale softball team seems to be just as capricious as the weather they play in. The Bulldogs (12-18, 2-2 Ivy) played a doubleheader against Fairfield (18-15) yesterday and, continuing their season trend, the Elis split […]

Softball splits again, but shows potential

Home or away, non-conference or conference, the Yale softball team seems to have no preference when it comes to where and against whom they split doubleheaders. But the Bulldogs are finally starting to put their bats on the ball consistently — a nice change to be making as the Ivy League season gets underway. The […]
