Elis acquire second league win

At first glance, a 3-8 record may not seem overly impressive, but for the field hockey team, it’s quite an accomplishment. Kicking off a four-game road swing this weekend, the Bulldogs surpassed their record from the 2005 campaign by picking up a second Ivy win. In the first game, Yale defeated Dartmouth, 3-1, on Saturday […]

Field hockey faces Ancient Eight test

When the field hockey team visits the Big Green this weekend, they will need to come up big if they hope to snag the Ivy crown. The Bulldogs (2-7, 1-1 Ivy) first head to Hanover, N.H. on Saturday to take on Ancient Eight foe Dartmouth (3-5, 1-2), where they will fight to stay in the […]

Field hockey gives up hat trick, suffers rout

Only a week ago, the field hockey team was riding high after notching an Ivy win over Cornell. Now, the Elis are headed back to the drawing board. Yale (2-7, 1-1 Ivy) suffered another disappointing non-conference loss, 5-1, to Holy Cross (8-3) at home yesterday. Although the Bulldogs were able to hold the Crusaders to […]

F. hockey looks to rebound at home

Nearly halfway through its season, the field hockey team got the big win it had been waiting for. But last weekend’s historic victory against Cornell, which gave the Elis their first Ivy win this year and their first road win against the Big Red in 20 years, was short-lived. The Bulldogs (2-6, 1-1 Ivy) could […]

F. hockey tops Cornell on the road for the first time since ’85

The 260-mile bus trip back from Cornell is a long ride for any Yale team. But with a historic road win and a big league victory under their belts, the members of the field hockey team might not have minded so much. The Bulldogs (2-5, 1-1 Ivy) defeated the Big Red (4-2, 2-1), 4-2, to […]

Brownell feeds students nutritional knowledge

Less than five minutes into his lecture, psychology professor Kelly Brownell posed this question: “Can you identify this food?” The slide displayed a list of 56 ingredients, and the students crowded into Davies Auditorium laughed before calling out answers ranging from cookies to breakfast cereals. One contestant responded correctly: a Kellogg’s pop tart. “That’s right,” […]


Lightweights slip in Durand Cup, place third

For the first time in 11 years, the Durand Cup did not make the return trip to the Gilder Boathouse in Derby, Conn. The men’s lightweight crew team finished third to Dartmouth and Rutgers in New Brunswick, N.J., last Saturday for its first loss of the spring season. Yale fell behind early and never recovered, […]

W. track dominates Killer Ps

The women’s track team has been competing in invitational meets since the start of its spring season in early March. But with only one week of classes left, the Elis are just now beginning to face Ivy League rivals. In one of only two home meets, the Bulldogs dominated Princeton and Penn to win 11 […]

Lightweights top three Ivy teams

One competitor would be enough for most teams to face in a single day. But the men’s lightweight crew team took on three rivals in two races on Saturday. The Elis won a morning doubleheader against Penn and Columbia in Mercer County, N.J., last Saturday before defeating Cornell later that afternoon. Yale’s varsity eight beat […]

Crew traditions unite generations

Each May, after fellow students have long since departed for summer jobs and family vacations, the heavyweight crew team travels to Gales Ferry, Conn., to train for the oldest collegiate competition in the country: the Yale-Harvard race. First contested in 1852 between the two crews on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, it marked the first […]

Elis win Johnson Cup despite weather

In its first race of the season, the men’s lightweight crew team dealt with a peskier opponent than the rival crew — the weather. Strong winds and choppy water made for less than ideal conditions at Saturday’s Eads Johnson ’34 Cup, which the Bulldogs won for the first time since its inception in 2004. In […]
