W. track goes the distance at N.C. State

Life without the O’Neill twins has continued for the women’s outdoors track and field team this spring.

W. bball shoots for strong home finale for seniors

It is too bad for the Yale women’s basketball team that the Ivy League is the only conference in college hoops without a postseason tournament.

W. bball gets revenge vs. Dartmouth in OT

Every road trip has its hills and valleys. On their journey to Cambridge and Hanover this weekend, the Yale women’s basketball team’s final weekend had plenty of both.

W. bball hopes to repeat vs. Crimson on the road

If it works once, use it. And if it almost worked once, try it again.

Women’s bball downs defending Ivy champs

Judging by the halftime scores at the Yale women’s basketball pair of home games this weekend, it would have been difficult to predict that the Bulldogs would lose Friday night, but pick up their first Ivy League win the following evening.

Elis want to bring the fans out and the house down

All week long, fliers have been going up around campus to encourage fans to come out Saturday night and help the Yale women’s basketball team break the program’s fan attendance record.

W. bball has nowhere to go but up in Ivies

Whenever you’re in last place, no conference opponent can be looked at as an easy win. But despite entering this weekend’s games in the Ivy League basement, the Yale women’s basketball team (3-14, 0-4 Ivy) also cannot be looked at as a pushover. The Bulldogs’ four Ivy League losses this season have all come against […]
