Levin anchors rejuvenated w. lax

Lindsay Levin ’07 has no shortage of fans, especially at home. Her father Joel has attended every game in Lindsay’s senior season, and her mother Shelly, a fourth grade teacher, attends as many as her work allows. Her younger brother Zach, a sophomore at Cornell, showed that family ties are stronger then school ties when […]

Enyeart ’09 excels early

During an interview, Megan Enyeart ’09 — wearing sweats and a white-and-blue tournament shirt — speaks thoughtfully and honestly, but with a hint of reservation. The first baseman chooses her words with care, revealing her occasionally self-critical tendencies. After a stellar rookie year, the all-Ivy player has put pressure on herself to excel in her […]

Brown finds ‘extreme’ success on Yale waters

Zach Brown ’08 is many things:the top sailing recruit in the nation and a world-class competitor, the skipper who wears all black and a full face mask to regattas, and the subject of his own Facebook.com group. But it only takes one word to sum it all up — extreme. The sailing career of the […]

Nolet vaults towards challenge in Boston

In a few days, pole-vaulter Ashley Nolet ’07 will face her Achilles heel — ECACs at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. Once familiar ground for high school competitions, the venue has become a place of mishaps during an otherwise spectacular college run. In her freshman year at Yale, Nolet tore her meniscus during a […]

Holmes bros. dazzle the ladies, opponents

Caleb and Nick Holmes ’08, the first set of twins in the history of Yale basketball, know exactly how to make a girl’s dream come true. Last Christmas, Caleb wrote a children’s book — aptly titled “A Young Girl’s Dream” — for his brother’s girlfriend that spelled out the three simple steps for eternal bliss. […]

Witt, Resor to rejoin Team USA

Yale women’s hockey defenseman Helen Resor ’09 and head coach Hilary Witt will be representing the United States at the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championships on April 3 through 10. Resor, a member of the 2006 Olympic squad at Torino, was one of the 24 women to be named on the roster, as […]

All McLeod ever loses is her passport

When alone in a kayak with a South African shark lurking below the surface, Catherine McLeod ’07 can out-paddle it. When left behind in New Zealand without a passport or a visa, McLeod can make it back to Yale in less than two weeks. And when left on a squash court with any collegiate opponent, […]

Langhauser ’07 aims for record

Rumor has it that John Langhauser shed a few tears during the Hugh Grant-Julia Roberts romantic affair, “Notting Hill.” Not what one would expect from a burly thrower on the verge of breaking the Yale shot-put record, but then again, there isn’t much about Langhauser that conforms to the cocky machismo image so commonly associated […]

Okafor shines on final Eli season

Chinenye Okafor ’07 knows how to satisfy her cravings. Whether it’s the exhilaration of competition or a simple waffle run (with strawberries and whipped cream on top, of course), the Bulldog forward gets it done on and off the court. The second of five children of immigrant parents, Okafor was raised in a strict household […]

Backman ’10 dazzles with goal output, locks

Sean Backman ’10 has sick flow. Everyone can see it. All the hockey players aspire to it. But sick flow doesn’t refer to his status as the Bulldogs’ leading scorer or the left wing’s stylized moves on the rink. It’s another sort of style — his hair. “It’s the ideal hockey hair,” said teammate Billy […]

Santoro rises to acclaim

“Santoro for Heisman” has been one of the loudest rally cries during the first-place football team’s surprising 2006 start. Coined by teammate Eric Vidal ’09, the phrase is plastered on posters, shouted across campus and thrown around jokingly in conversations. But this rising sophomore standout is hardly undeserving of all this positive attention this fall. […]
