We are anxiously awaiting the official announcement from Yale regarding the 2020 recruiting class.
Fourth-ranked Yale Lacrosse hosts Navy this Sunday in the 1st Round of the D1 Men’s College Lacrosse Championship tournament. A Yale win could set the stage for a huge rematch against #5 Brown.
The Yale Baseball team will be traveling to Princeton this weekend for the best-of-three Ivy League Championship Series. Despite being heavily criticized in the past, Tom Beckett has truly elevated Yale sports over the course of his career. Basketball earned a spot in the tournament and knocked off Baylor. Men’s Crew is currently ranked #1 in the country. Lacrosse won the Ivy League Tournament over Harvard (Alessi had two goals) and Baseball is in contention for an Ivy title this weekend. Beckett’s made mistakes in the past, but no one can question his dedication to building Yale’s athletic department.
Harvard announced that members of unrecognized single-sex social groups (AKA fraternities, sororities, and finals clubs) will not be eligible to hold positions of leadership on athletic teams or in student government organizations. The administration seems to think that by discouraging involvement in these social organizations, incidents of discrimination and rape will decrease. The true consequences of this action will be decreased student happiness and lackluster alumni giving campaigns (both of which are great for Yale). I can’t imagine how DKE and Zeta members on the Yale football team would react if Salovey were to announce such a bizarre rule!
