Elis place well at Paul Short

Compared to last Friday’s affair, the women’s cross country team’s prior two meets at Boston’s Franklin Park seemed like close and intimate gatherings. Both the Boston College Invitational and the Harvard-Princeton-Yale events fielded roughly 50 contestants, but when the Eli squad sidled up to the starting line at Lehigh last weekend, they found themselves among […]

Pioneers top Elis at home

Perhaps the Elis lost a little bit of the fiery momentum from their historic Saturday win during the six-hour haul home from Ithaca. After field hockey managed to figure out the Big Red for the first time since 1985, the squad had its hands full when Connecticut neighbors Sacred Heart came to call last night. […]

2006 Football Preview: The Bowl

More than just a site for Saturday afternoon tailgates, the Yale Bowl symbolizes the powerful history and towering legacy of Yale football. The stadium, which seats 64,269 fans on its 12.5 acres of land, has witnessed the inimitable triumphs and regrettable downfalls of 92 Yale teams. The Bowl has also hosted the World Special Olympic […]

2006 Football Preview: The Boss

Jack Siedlecki, Yale football’s boss, takes the field for his 10th season in the Elm City with two enduring legacies in tow — “The Turnaround” and “The Drought.” The upstate New York native inherited a reeling program in December 1996 and managed to transform a 1-9 wreck into an Ivy League crown two years later […]

2006 Football Preview: What to Expect

A showdown between storied history and newfound momentum. The Elis are a whopping 114-17-2 in season openers. But the sizzling Toreros may have the edge after dunking the Bulldogs last September, becoming the first team in their conference ever to topple an Ivy entry. The defending Pioneer League champions have but a single loss to […]

2006 Football Preview: Last Year’s Action

The Elis fell to San Diego, 17-14, in last year’s season opener. 2005 Ivy League Rookie of the Year Mike McLeod ’09 rushed for 102 yards on 18 carries, the best offensive performance of any of the Bulldogs. Yale trounced Cornell, 37-17, in last year’s league opener. Quarterback and captain Jeff Mroz ’06 threw for […]

Righi ’09 tapped for Pan Am games

Men’s swimming captain Geof Zann ’07 said that back in May, Alex Righi ’09 departed New Haven having told a few of his teammates that he hoped to “make a team” this summer. A Team USA for the Pan Pac Games. Or the Pan Am Games. Or the World University Games. After months of selection […]

M. soccer hosts tough opponents

The last time Yale men’s soccer started this strong, in 2002, the squad swept through the simply-named Yale Soccer Classic at Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium en route to a 5-0 early season mark. Four years, two Fortune 1000 sponsors and a stadium rebranding later, the 2-0 Elis kick off the E-Trade Financial 2006 Yale Soccer Classic presented […]

W. lax loses nailbiter to Big Red

Slow out of the gate. Resilient in the middle. Resounding by the final whistle. Such phrases are just as apt to describe Saturday’s season finale as they are to wrap up Yale women’s lacrosse’s entire 2006 season. No. 13 Cornell (10-2, 5-1 Ivy) came screaming into the first half with their Ivy survival on the […]

Women’s lax wraps up 2006 with trip to Ithaca

Final exams are nearing; reading week is just hours away. As the academic year wraps up here at Yale this weekend, so will the season for the women’s lacrosse team. But on most Ivy League campuses outside of New Haven, players are still stuck somewhere between midterms and finals, and there is much lacrosse still […]

Greenberg ’09 scores six in win

A slew of Elis foretold a roughshod, back-and-forth battle this holiday weekend, and an afternoon slugfest made the perfect appetizer for many a Bulldog’s Easter dinner. Cal stormed into the Nutmeg State with two years worth of resentment and a vivacious slew of yellow-clad parents in tow, but the hometown women’s lacrosse squad still prevailed […]
