30th anniversary year sparks Title IX meeting

Although it has been 30 years since Title IX first became law, some students feel Yale can do more to promote the equality between men’s and women’s varsity athletics than Title IX requires. The Bush administration’s decision this summer to re-evaluate the validity of Title IX — the section of the Educational Amendment of 1972 […]

Women’s soccer working toward common goal

Yale women’s soccer head coach Rudy Meredith says this year’s squad is the best he’s seen in years. “As far as unity goes, it’s the best it’s ever been. [There is no one on the team] who doesn’t want to be in this environment,” he said. But ironically, such unity on the field visually translates […]

Women’s soccer ties La Salle at home

Despite outshooting their opponents 25-10, the women’s soccer team emerged from Sunday’s game against La Salle with only a 1-1 tie. After a slow first half, in which the Bulldogs concentrated on containing the Explorers’ powerhouse forwards, Yale’s offense came alive to earn a draw. “We had the better opportunities,” goalie Lindsay Sabel ’03 said.

Lightweight crew dominates the water

366 Elm Street, next to Rudy’s, is a place with transformative powers. A pair of oars grace the building’s facade like a coat of arms. Everyone who lives there seems to enter anxious and restless, only to emerge, four years later, confident, triumphant and buff. The house is home to Yale’s lightweight crew team, which […]

Would-be All-American gets another chance

What happens to a dream deferred? Brian Hunt ’02 saw his dream destroyed for an entire season — and seemingly, forever — only to resurface with renewed promise in his final months at Yale. Hunt, the lacrosse team’s leading scorer who had scored at least one point in every game in 2000, broke his ankle […]

Track team is hindered by lack of throwers

Yale’s outdoor track and field squads surprised themselves Saturday as they showcased competitive scores, record times, and comeback specials from long-injured athletes. But for both teams, roster holes in key field events fanned down the hot streak quickly. The women were at the University of Pennsylvania’s Franklin Field, up against Penn and Princeton. Though they […]
