Witt answers call to national team

Yale hockey has a long legacy of coaching on the national level as head and assistant coaches from both the men’s and women’s sides have lead U.S. teams over past decades. Now, as the women’s squad prepares to hit the ice for the 2006-’07 campaign, another Eli will join this long and storied tradition. In […]

Kim ’09 aims for perfection

This summer, Janet Kim ’09 went undefeated on the singles court at Wimbledon. But she won’t tell you that. She was also undefeated in Ivy League play in her freshman year at Yale, but she won’t tell you that either. In fact, she doesn’t even tell her roommates when she is winning every match. “She’s […]

Hills plays like he lives, with consistency

The Beckwiths know exactly what to do when Gage Hills ’07 enters the Yankee Doodle, their family-run restaurant. In the morning, they begin by pouring him a cup of orange juice and then follow up with, “Two on English, Gage?” As usual, they next start frying his breakfast order, two bacon egg and cheese sandwiches […]

Friedlander ’07 does it all, from field to A&A

Elizabeth Friedlander ’07 — or, as an adviser once described her, the Energizer bunny on crack — balances a busy life and overcomes hurdles without skipping a beat. She is the starting goalie for the Yale field hockey team, a section leader in Whim and Rhythm, and a senior architecture major, somehow managing to succeed […]

Baseball sweeps Fairfield

Josh Cox ’08 was hot on his feet yesterday in the baseball team’s doubleheader sweep of the Fairfield Stags. So hot, in fact, that he stole six bases and nabbed four runs over the course of the day. And he wasn’t the only one who brought his best game. The Bulldogs (23-14, 8-4 Ivy) used […]

Senior survives scare to return to water

June 4 and Dec. 15, 2005, hold very strong but opposing emotions for Joe Fahrendorf ’06. On June 4, the Yale lightweight men won the national championship — a day of glory. On Dec. 15, a car slid off an icy road, slamming into Joe and Sonya Bonnin ’06 — a day of immediate and […]

Inspired by Kobe and Jack Bauer, Wai ’07 dominates courts

If you have anything negative to say about Kobe Bryant, don’t say it around Brandon Wai ’07. He just might up and walk away. The varsity tennis star almost walked out of his interview once he realized his passion for the Lakers and their star was not a shared feeling. Although the threat was lighthearted, […]

Sweet 16 lives and plays by sound rules

When Lauren Taylor ’08 took a summer internship at the American Red Cross of Greater New York in Manhattan, her initial assignment was to create disaster-preparedness presentations to educate the general public. But she soon found a greater calling within the organization. Upon discovering that children’s programs had been cut because of post-Sept. 11 funding […]

Rookie Pearce ’09 dominates on day two of NCAAs, takes fifth

Carly Guss ’06 entered the world of fencing much later than most athletes involved in the sport. So when she first began training in her freshman year of college, she shared the company, but not the competitive experience, of veteran national team members and even Olympians. But as she ended her career this past weekend […]

Elis fence well at IFAs

Tejas Srinivas ’07 and Eugenia Poland ’08 led the Bulldogs in an unexpected way this past weekend. The women’s fencers went into their most recent competition without a full squad and without a full lineup of starters. So, faced with adversity, the two epee athletes decided to step up and compete out of their trained […]

Sailors finish 8th in regatta

Four Yale sailors woke this weekend to chilly 40-degree weather and shifty winds. The South Carolina day was unexpectedly cold and wet, and the Elis had not practiced all winter. This did not dishearten them though; a return to the water was enough to bring satisfaction. Two boats of co-ed dinghy sailors competed in Charleston, […]

_ (31798)

John Langhauser ’07 knew that he would face strong weight throw competitors at the Harvard-Yale-Princeton track meet. He also knew that with the Ivy League championship meet just around the corner that he had to seize the time to throw well. What he didn’t know was that by the end of the day he would […]
