W. lax gets off to slow Ivy start

If the women’s lacrosse team (3-3, 0-1 Ivy) can stretch its trademark last-minute intensity all the way back to the first whistle, the Bulldogs will be quite the force to reckon with this season. Clawing their way back from early deficits to experience both last-second miracles and heartbreakers was the most resounding theme of a […]

W. lax wins opener in double-overtime

Anyone expecting a soft, comfortable transition into the regular season would have been sorely disappointed at Johnson Field Wednesday afternoon. It took all of one game for women’s lacrosse to push deep past regulation into their first double overtime of the year, and an especially gritty effort was just enough to knock off UConn in […]

Dynasty downed: Elis fall to Crimson

Surreal was an understatement. The Ivy League trophy had sat on a table next to the main exhibition court during all of yesterday’s match, looking quite at home in the Brady Squash Center.

PRINCETON, N.J. — Soaked with sweat after a grueling day in a Princeton dungeon, Andrew Vinci ’06 didn’t know what hit him. It was men’s squash team captain Julian Illingworth ’06, and he was not alone. A swarm of dripping blue shirts and bandanas followed their leader, leaping over the second-floor guard rail of the […]

The stage seemed set for something magical to happen at Payne Whitney. The squash galleries were still rocking from a thrilling women’s squash match that went down to the final serve. Many of the squash regulars — parents wearing suits and toting copies of the Wall Street Journal — poked their way around a teeming […]

Hartford. You may have grabbed a brief gritty vista from a Connecticut Limo en route to Bradley Airport. The population is slipping, the insurance firms are outsourcing and the beloved Whalers have now long since fled to Raleigh. But in the past 10 years, the hilly city a few exits up I-91 has found a […]
