Spring Ball officially concluded on Saturday with the “One New Haven” event at Bowen Field. The offense and defense competed for nine quarters on a rain-soaked afternoon with the offense edging the defense 5-4. The defense surprisingly won the first quarter as the offense struggled to get into a rhythm, but the offense eventually found its groove to best the defense on the day. The defense at all three levels appears to be much further ahead in their development than just a season ago with key battles pushing players to improve. The linebackers and defensive backs are likely still the weakest positional groups overall, but they seem to be improving at a faster rate than other more established groups.
The next time the Bulldogs will be suiting up as a team will be mid-August for the start of fall camp. Summer attendance for players sounds like it will be very high this summer as the Elis continuously seek to get bigger, faster and stronger for the upcoming campaign.
Men’s Lacrosse defeated Albany this weekend 10-5, while Men’s Baseball swept Penn in a three game series 6-5, 9-7, and 8-0.
