Women’s lax looks to maul Bears again

It was a year ago this week, and the women’s lacrosse team was headed to the airport. Safe to say, the Elis were not too happy. Exams were looming as the spring semester entered its final days. Many a final paper was due the next Monday. The exhaustion factor of the Ancient Eight home stretch […]

Women’s lax defeats Lions

The calendar said April, the weather felt like May, but the women’s lacrosse team came out of the locker room to face Columbia looking like it was stuck in March. On the immediate heels of a draining battle in torrential Princeton downpours Saturday afternoon, the road-weary Bulldogs (7-6, 2-3 Ivy) might have been expected to […]

W. lax falls short in upset bid

When Yale midfielder Taylor Fragapane ’09 scored to give the Elis a 6-5 lead minutes into the second half Saturday, she put the women’s lacrosse team in its best position to win at No. 8 Princeton since a similar April afternoon a few years back. April 1986, to be exact, a mere eight months before […]

W. lax strives for road upset

Two weeks ago, Yale women’s lacrosse somehow found a way to topple defending Ivy champion Dartmouth — winners of all but two Ancient Eight rings since 1994 — for the first time since 2002 and only the fourth time in the last 22 years. But a week later, the Bulldogs switched costumes and played the […]

After slow start, w. lax beats Crusaders

For a few minutes at the beginning of yesterday afternoon’s affair, it looked like nearly a week of intense practices had not exorcised the demons from Saturday’s women’s lacrosse game thoroughly enough. The shots still refused to fall for the Elis, and Holy Cross (8-4) was doing a pretty uncanny impression of their fellow Bay […]

Bulldogs host weak Cantabs

Regardless of sport, venue or year, any Harvard-Yale game is always grounds for a warranted dose of romanticizing, posturing and hype. Rivalries are renewed each season with a fresh batch of faces, each bent on making its little mark in the annals of the historic feud. But in seemingly most instances, one program is the […]

Women’s lax wins big over Fairfield

The women’s lacrosse team was long overdue for an afternoon like Wednesday’s. The Elis (5-4, 1-1 Ivy) spent almost all of March bouncing around the country in front of hostile crowds, but all that could be heard yesterday at Johnson Field were subdued claps from a smattering of parents, broken by a friendly holler here […]

Elis shock No. 13 Big Green

With one little bouncer that somehow found its way between Dartmouth goalie Devon Wills’ legs, the whole frontier has drastically transformed for Yale women’s lacrosse. Defenseman Jenn Warden ’09 delivered the biggest goal of her young career with 17 ticks left in regulation, and moments later jubilant Elis (4-4, 1-1 Ivy) reveled in a shocking […]

Elis face ’05 Ivy champ Dartmouth

The calendar may have read 2005, but it may as well have been straight out of this women’s lacrosse season. A halftime deficit. A valiant late comeback. But after a jarring final whistle, a heartbreaking loss. The Elis nearly toppled the daunting then-No. 7 Big Green this same weekend last year at Johnson Field, but […]

_ (32273)

Opposites were the name of the game for women’s lacrosse yesterday in Boston. On the positive side, the Elis blasted out of the gate for the first time in the young season, kicking a nagging trend of slow starts. But powerhouse Boston University would only let them stick around so long, and the Bulldogs, usually […]

Winter Sports Roundup – Men’s Squash

Yale men’s squash rocketed to the pinnacle of the squash world, yet the historic season nearly died just hours after the first serve. The Bulldogs had to battle back from a 4-2 deficit to vanquish an unexpectedly pesky Penn squad in the season opener, and they vowed to use the early scare only as a […]
