Women’s lacrosse recruits seem to be getting better and better. After last year’s freshman class, which brought the Elis both their starting goalkeeper, Ellen Cameron ’08, and All-Ivy midfielder Lauren Taylor ’08, it seemed as though Yale would be hard-pressed to find a more promising set of rookies. But after watching the Class of 2009 […]

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — After searching for more than a year, the men’s basketball team finally found what it had been looking for — a road win in conference play.

Elis look for road success

The last time the men’s basketball team went on the road, it faced the challenge of overcoming the top two teams in the Ivy League. This time around, the issue won’t be taking down opponents so much as kicking them after they’ve already fallen. This weekend, the Elis (13-10, 5-3 Ivy) travel to Dartmouth (3-18, […]

M. bball to face P’s

No Ivy League men’s basketball team has swept Penn and Princeton on the road in 19 years, not since Yale took home both wins during the 1986-87 season.
