Jordan ’06 to ride at Nationals

While it is rare for any athlete from Yale to compete in her sport’s national championship, it is rarer still that she can do so by practicing only once a week for a sport that has neither varsity status nor adequate facilities on campus. Liz Jordan ’06 will represent Yale at the Intercollegiate Horse Show […]

W. track closes out indoor season

The women’s track and field team successfully wrapped up its indoor season in two postseason meets and has already started its outdoor campaign, in which the athletes hope to improve on their disappointing fifth-place finish at the Indoor Heptagonals. Joslyn Woodard ’06, who hit the NCAA provisional standard in the long jump at Heps, was […]

W. track runs to disappointing fifth at Heptagonals

For the women’s indoor track and field team, which had hoped to bring home its first Ivy League title, a broken-down bus served as an apt but cruel end to the weekend. Almost everything that could have gone wrong at the Heptagonal Games did go wrong for the Bulldogs, and the bus breakdown, which prevented […]

Elis hope to trump Cornell at Heps

While the Ivy League indoor track and field championship includes teams from each of the Ancient Eight schools, the Bulldogs are focusing on just one: Cornell. The Big Red has won the meet two years in a row, beating the second-place Eli women by 15 points last year. This weekend, Cornell hosts the 2004 Ivy […]

Sprinter Castille: ‘real women run’

In the time it takes to read this sentence, Joslyn Woodard ’06 and Katrina Castille ’07 can cover a distance of 55 meters on the track. (Break out your stopwatch — it takes 7.9 seconds. Woodard can beat that.) The Eli sprinters, who race in events ranging from the 55- up to the 400- and […]

Tigers eke past w. track in HYPs

For the women’s indoor track and field team, history repeated itself on Saturday — sort of. For the second year in a row, the Bulldogs lost the Harvard-Yale-Princeton meet by a single point. The only thing that changed was the winner. In Cambridge the Bulldogs fell to the Tigers 60-59, but finished solidly ahead of […]

O’Neill sisters qualify for x-country Worlds

As members of the Yale cross country and track teams, sisters Kate and Laura O’Neill ’03 rarely faced many runners of their caliber. But after standout performances last weekend, the twins will get a chance to compete against the very best athletes in the world. Last Saturday, the O’Neills competed in the USA Cross Country […]

Silver finishes abound for w. track in Boston

The women’s indoor track team saw some familiar faces this weekend in two separate meets in Boston. Competing against some of the same teams they have faced in the last few weeks, on Friday the Bulldogs scored 79.33 points to place fourth out of 13 teams in the collegiate division of the Adidas Boston Indoor […]

Lederman, Nolet vault to the top

The early part of the Yale women’s indoor track season has been characterized by change — who runs, what events they run, strategy, level of competition and type of meet. But through the first three meets of the season, one thing has remained constant: Molly Lederman ’06 and Ashley Nolet ’07 have taken first and […]

Busted-up w. track takes second

On Friday, the women’s indoor track and field team proved it is one of the top teams in the region even when not competing at full strength. The Elis competed at the University of Rhode Island against six other teams including in-state rivals Quinnipiac, the University of Connecticut, and Central Connecticut State University. The Bulldogs […]

URI Invite is primer for w. track

At the level of the individual, track is a simple sport. All that matters is who can run fastest, jump highest, or throw farthest. But collegiate track and field is not just an individual endeavor. Team scoring and a long season change the dynamic of competition and complicate the sport by adding layers of strategy […]
