Three Yale Bulldogs -- Christine Glandorf (Boston, Mass.) of the women's crew team, Alina Liao (Saratoga, Calif.) of the gymnastics team and Ashley McCauley (Rye, N.Y.) of the field hockey team -- were named second team at-large ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District I Thursday. Yale was the only school in the district with three honorees.
The Yale field hockey team announced its 2009 schedule Tuesday, with the season opener set for Sept. 4 against Sacred Heart at Johnson Field. In addition to the seven Ivy League games --starting with Harvard at home on Sept. 19 -- the Bulldogs' 10 non-league games include a pair on a trip to Maine. Overall there are four teams on the schedule that were either ranked or receiving votes in the national poll at the end of 2008, and three teams that took part in the NCAA Tournament.
