Volleyball earns split in D.C. tourney

The nation’s capital played host to a group of Yalies this weekend, and much like Congress these days, bipartisanship was far from everyone’s minds. The Yale women’s volleyball team (1-1), last year’s Ivy League champion, was not looking to compromise with its opponents as it took part in the Georgetown Classic on Friday and Saturday, […]

M. soccer is winless no longer

The wait is finally over. On a perfect fall night, the men’s soccer team (1-6-0) chalked one up in the win column. Bolstered by two first-half goals by forward Gage Hills ’07, the Elis dominated Fairfield 3-1 in front of a home crowd eager for a Bulldog victory. After dropping its first six games, Yale […]

M. soccer still fails to score win

The road was no more welcoming than home this past weekend for the men’s soccer team. Traveling to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the fourth annual Golden Hurricane Classic, the Bulldogs (0-6-0) failed to record their first victory of the season, falling to Southern Methodist University 5-2 Friday and 3-1 to host Tulsa yesterday. Friday night, against […]

With plenty of shots, Elis need win

The men’s soccer team has definitely been shooting — they just have not been scoring. In their first four games this season, the Elis (0-4-0) have outshot their opponents by an almost two to one margin (55-31). But despite this impressive stat, the Bulldogs have only three goals to show for it. In their last […]

Soccer is thwarted twice on home turf

This weekend at the Yale Soccer Classic, the visitors looked more comfortable at Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium than the hosts did. After dropping their first two games last weekend on the road, the men’s soccer team (0-4-0) failed to capitalize on their home-field advantage. The Elis fell to Duquesne, 3-1, on Friday night, before getting shut out […]

Elis do not fear tough opponents

There is an old sports cliche that goes “To be the best, you have to beat the best.” Based on the men’s soccer team’s schedule this season, the Elis (0-2-0) seem to be taking that saying to heart. In order to make a run at an NCAA tournament bid, the Bulldogs have lined up some […]

M. soccer drops two in Providence

Two years ago, at the Brown Classic, the men’s soccer team defeated then-defending NCAA champions University of North Carolina. Last season, at the very same tournament, the Elis upset NCAA-finalist Stanford. This time around, at the Brown Classic in Providence, however, the Bulldogs were unable to repeat history. Yale dropped both its games this weekend, […]

M. soccer hopeful, despite losing Alberts, Roberts

The men’s soccer team is hoping 13 is its lucky number. With nine out of their starting 11 players back as well as four of the top five scorers, the Bulldogs are looking to bring home their first Ivy League title since 1991. Last year, the Bulldogs bested some tough, non-conference opponents like Stanford and […]

Softball loses three, title hopes evaporate

Senior weekend at Dewitt Family Field did not present the seniors on the Yale softball team any parting gifts. The Elis of the Class of ’04 were treated to three losses in four games, a sweep by Harvard, and a collapse of their chance at an Ivy League title. The Elis (27-19, 7-5 Ivy) entered […]

Blumenthal mixes laughter, medicine

Who said lawyers do not have a sense of humor? Before a crowd of about 150 people, mostly nurses and members of the Yale School of Nursing, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal LAW ’73 elicited many laughs Wednesday in a speech dealing with the serious subject of health concerns in the state. Blumenthal was the […]


Softball wins three, leads Ivies

If only other Eli teams could perform as well against the Killer P’s. The Yale softball team (24-16, 6-2 Ivy) took three of four from Penn and Princeton on the road this weekend, sweeping the Quakers and splitting with the Tigers. With their performance, the Bulldogs now hold sole possession of first place in the […]
