Shoddy greens hinder w. golf

A putt can be thrown off course by the slightest of perturbations, something the women’s golf team learned all too well this weekend. The Bulldogs finished third out of 14 teams at Columbia’s Roar-EE Invitational with a score of 988 over 54 holes. Brigham Young took first place while Harvard finished second, 23 strokes ahead […]

While Trevor Immelman was winning the green jacket at the Masters in Augusta, Colby Moore ’09 won his own championship Sunday.

Moore ’09 leads men’s golf to 8th place finish

The shortest holes in golf turned out to be the toughest for the men’s golf team this weekend, amid otherwise solid play. The Bulldogs hosted the Yale Men’s Spring Open on their home golf course last weekend, finishing in eighth place out of 27 teams in the field. The Elis were in 13th after the […]

In Battell, 1,000 voices lifted in tribute to MLK

The words of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as the Black National Anthem, resounded throughout Battell Chapel in two performances Friday honoring the legacy of James Weldon Johnson, the hymn’s composer, on the 40th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. The event, which featured 1,000 singing New Haven elementary and middle-school children […]


In cold and wind, m. golf struggles to 14th place finish

There is a saying in sports that you have to get the bad shots out of you first, and the men’s golf team definitely seemed to use this weekend for that purpose. The Bulldogs traveled to Grasonville, Md., this weekend to play in the Lacrosse Homes Collegiate Invitational hosted by Towson University. The Elis finished […]

W. hoops gets chance to wrap up with win

The greatest feeling in sports is winning a championship. Teams train and compete all season with that singular end in mind. What is the second greatest feeling in sports, you ask? Certainly not finishing in second place, because that means you lost to whoever placed first. No, the second greatest feeling in sports comes when […]

W. hoops still in search of a complete weekend

Consistent at being inconsistent seems to be the reigning theme for women’s basketball. Another weekend playing Penn (5-21, 2-9 Ivy) and Princeton (7-20, 4-7) again ended in mixed emotions for the Bulldogs (8-17, 6-6). The Elis defeated the Quakers on Friday, 79-70, winning their third Ivy League road game of the season. But the Tigers […]

Elis building off last week’s stellar games

The women’s basketball team (7-16, 5-5 Ivy) heads to Princeton and Penn this weekend in their final road trip of the season.

Colborne sets fire, w. bball goes 1-1

As the saying goes, “Better late than never.” Nothing could be truer for the women’s basketball team, as the Bulldogs played some of their best basketball of the season this past weekend with four games remaining on the schedule. [ydn-legacy-photo-inline id=”12607″ ] The Elis (7-16, 5-5 Ivy) split a pair against first-place Cornell (17-6, 9-1) […]

Bulldogs still stuck in middle of the Ivy pack

The women’s basketball team (6-16, 4-4 Ivy) will try to regroup this weekend after six days of thinking about missed chances. The Bulldogs’ self-destruction over the last 8:16 against Penn (4-18, 1-6) will continue to confound the rest of the season — the Elis went from a tied game to an eight-point loss against a […]

W. hoops wins, then stumbles

The women’s basketball team did its best impression of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde this weekend — leaving Bulldog fans to wonder how two such different performances could come from the same team. The Elis (6-15, 4-4 Ivy) easily defeated Princeton (5-18, 2-5) at home on Friday, 78-57, at John J. Lee Amphitheater. The Bulldogs […]
