W. lax preps to play two on same day

Nothing spells spring like sitting under the sun, relaxing and watching a doubleheader — of women’s lacrosse. In the rarest of occasions, No. 14 Yale (8-4, 3-2 Ivy) will play a double header at Johnson Field Saturday, first hosting University of California-Berkeley at noon followed by a match up against Monmouth at six. With 120 […]

W. lax falls to Tiger streak

After avenging a 2003 loss to Rutgers Wednesday, the tables were turned on the women’s lacrosse team three days later, when the Elis received a dose of Princeton payback. At Class of 1952 Stadium in New Jersey, the No. 1 Tigers (11-0, 3-0 Ivy) may not have dominated the game, but they dominated the scoreboard. […]

W. lax rides to victory against Scarlet Knights

Nothing, not even several sticks to the face, could stop midfielder Miles Whitman ’04 from racking up six goals and an assist as the women’s lacrosse team defeated Rutgers 10-8 at Johnson Field yesterday. The Scarlet Knights grabbed a 2-0 lead less than four minutes into the game, but the Elis (5-3, 2-1 Ivy) came […]

W. lax squashes late-game rally to lick Harvard

The women’s lacrosse team held off a late-game rally by the Crimson and got back over .500 in the conference with an 8-6 win over Harvard Saturday. The Bulldogs (6-3, 2-1 Ivy) led 8-3 with two minutes left in the game, but the Cantabs (4-4, 0-2) made things interesting with three goals in the last […]

W. lax showers Stags with 25 goals

The best description of yesterday’s events for the victorious offensive corps of the women’s lacrosse team can be captured in the saying, “When it rains, it pours.” While the nationally ranked No. 14 Bulldogs’ motto might be “so sick,” it was the Fairfield Stags (1-6) who may have left Johnson Field feeling under the weather. […]

Big Green outscores w. lacrosse

Despite outshooting Ivy League rival Dartmouth 30-27, the nationally ranked No. 15 women’s lacrosse team could not find the net often enough, dropping a crucial conference game 13-9 at Hanover, N.H., Saturday.

Callahan, Dwyer join the pros

While an overtime loss to St. Lawrence ended the men’s hockey team’s season March 6, it marked a new beginning for Yale’s top two defensemen, Joe Callahan ’05 and Jeff Dwyer ’04.

NHL gets bad break due to Bertuzzi

Over spring break, the mainstream sports media did something it rarely ever does: it paid attention to hockey. Thanks to Vancouver Canucks’ winger Todd Bertuzzi’s malicious cheap shot on Colorado Avalanche player Steve Moore on March 8 — a sucker punch that easily could have paralyzed the Harvard alum — every ESPN anchor, Sports Illustrated […]

W. lax eases above .500

Fun in the sun took on a different meaning for the women’s lacrosse team during the first week of spring break, but its twice-a-day practice sessions in Florida prepared it well for its Ivy League opener against the University of Pennsylvania.

M. hockey wraps up season on sour note

It seemed like the men’s hockey team went on spring break seven days early. With the ECAC playoffs next weekend, if the seventh place Bulldogs (12-17-0, 10-12-0 ECAC) cannot drastically improve from weekend home losses to Union, 3-1, and to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 6-0, they might have two full weeks of fun in the sun.
