Sailors qualify for nationals

For the fifth time in as many years, the women’s sailing team will compete for a national championship. The No. 2 Bulldogs won their first New England doublehanded title since 2002 this weekend at the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association Championship/Reed Trophy at Boston College. With the win, the Elis qualified for the North American […]

Sailing struggles at Moody, Admiral Cups

In college sailing, even winners can sometimes come in sixth. Matt Barry ’07, the captain of the No. 7 coed sailing team, won the singlehanded C division at the Admiral’s Cup at the United States Merchant Marine Academy in King’s Point, N.Y., this weekend. But the Elis were unable to put up similar performances in […]

We bleed Eli blue, and you will too

Not everyone gets to attend the school with the most national championships in college football. But we Yalies do. Even though it’s been almost 80 years since the last one, the Bulldogs’ 18 titles still lead all schools. Today, the Elis play Division I-AA football, but Yale athletes still win Division I national titles in […]


Elis finish second in Branford

It was home sweet home this weekend for the road-weary No. 7 coed sailing team. The Elis hosted the Ferrarone Team Racing Intersectional at the Yale Corinthian Yacht Club in Branford, and the tough conditions made the home water advantage a factor as the Elis cruised into second place among the 12 teams competing. Coed […]

Sailing struggles after slow week

Practice makes perfect, but the No. 7 coed sailing team has not practiced much recently — lack of wind at the Yale Corinthian Yacht Club in Branford for most of last week kept the Elis out of their boats and off the water. It showed this weekend at the Boston Dinghy Cup, a huge four-division […]

Silence is not helping the Blue Devils

It has been a while since we’ve heard from Richard H. Brodhead, dean of Yale College from 1993 to 2004, but now the beloved former administrator is back in the headlines for the first time since being named president of Duke University in July 2004. The news isn’t good. Duke’s decision to suspend the season […]

Sailing upsets Cantabs

Any win feels good, but beating Harvard is especially nice. The No. 13 coed sailing team won a sail-off with the No. 1 Cantabs this weekend at the Southern New England Team Race in New London, making a strong statement as the spring season gets going. At Harvard, the No. 2 women’s team finished third […]

Bulldogs struggle at regattas

The wind doesn’t always blow your way, even for national champions. The No. 13 coed sailing team and ICSA North American single-handed champ Molly Carapiet ’06 had a tough weekend in difficult conditions, finishing eighth of 20 overall at the massive Truxtun Umsted Regatta at Navy on March 20. Carapiet, who recently finished her term […]

Winter Sports Roundup – Women’s Hockey

In what would prove to be her final game in a Yale jersey, women’s hockey goalie Sarah Love ’06 was magnificent. With the Elis facing elimination in the first round of the ECACHL playoffs, Love pulled out all the stops, standing on her head to rack up a personal-best 53 saves. During her 58 and […]

W. hockey tries to upset St. Lawrence

In the past few years, the Yale women’s hockey team has gotten into the habit of putting bad history to rest. Last year, the Bulldogs beat Harvard for the first time in two decades. This year, longstanding Dartmouth, Brown and Harvard home winning streaks over the Elis also fell. If the Bulldogs (11-13-5, 8-8-4 ECACHL) […]

Me, racist? But my best friend is Italian

Kevin Nealon wrote an op-ed that ran in The New York Times last week. While this fascinating tidbit might lead to a column about the state of editorial writing in America, I was actually interested in what the former Saturday Night Live “star” had to say. Nealon was writing about his joy at finding his […]
