    Yale Perfect in Victory Over St. John's The Yale men’s tennis team finished up a busy weekend in Princeton on Sunday morning, taking on St. John’s in the backdraw of this year’s Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championships. Feeling the absence of No. 2 singles player Ziqi Wang and coming off two hard-fought losses to Cornell and Harvard, the Elis showed impressive mental strength to bounce back and submit their most comprehensive performances to date. As one of the top teams in the Northeast Region, St. John’s came into Sunday’s match with high confidence given their success in this fixture last season, which saw the Red Storm grind out a 4-3 victory. The Bulldogs, however, surprised their opponents from the outset with an improved lineup bolstered by three starting freshmen (Ryan Cheng, Andrew Heller and Dylan King), establishing an early lead and then running away with the match in a dominant 4-0 performance.

    Harvard Beats Yale 5-0 to Keep Playoff Hopes Alive The Yale women’s ice hockey team was facing a unique challenge Friday night: going up against a Harvard team that was fighting to avoid elimination from a playoff spot. The Crimson has been a constant presence in the ECAC Hockey Tournament for 20 years -- including six times when Harvard won it all -- but a rough 2016-17 season left Yale’s rival on the outside of the playoffs looking in entering the final weekend. The Crimson were in ninth place, trailing eighth-place Rensselaer by three points. Yale, meanwhile, had clinched a playoff spot a week ago and was just two points away from clinching the No. 7 seed. On Friday night at Bright-Landry Hockey Center, a desperate Harvard squad wound up keeping its playoff hopes alive with a 5-0 win over the Bulldogs. Brianna Laing made 28 saves for the shutout.
