Ladies finish perfect in PL

It was a perfect ending to a perfect regular season for the Field Hockey team, as they end the regular season with an undefeated record in the Patriot League and a 13-4 record overall.

Eagles dominate Army 3-1

Apparently, nobody told Army it was supposed to go down easily to AU in Saturday's volleyball match in Bender Arena. The Black Knights had hit only .131 in Patriot League matches before this weekend, but they defied that statistic Saturday, firing on all cylinders to hit .235.

Runners claim second PL title

Add two more Patriot League titles to AU's growing list of championships. The Men's and Women's Cross Country teams captured their second-consecutive PL championship at Lafayette, defeating Army and Navy on an abnormally hot Saturday.

Eagles nipped by No. 3 Terps

V-ball smashes PL competition

Lafayette and Lehigh had a chance to avenge earlier losses to AU Volleyball as the Eagles headed to Pennsylvania last week. But the result for this round of play was no different as the Eagles once again triumphed.

Lack of Madness no help to AU

Going into my third year at AU as a student-athlete, I have noticed a distinct difference between a real Div. I university and our Div. 1 university.

Lady Eagles dribble past Bucknell

AU did its part to keep its PL title hopes alive on Saturday, thwarting host Bucknell 3-0 behind two goals and one assist from senior midfielder Anabel Jimenez. The win pushes the Eagles to 8-6-1 overall, and 5-1 in the PL.

World Series in a box

We can all stop crying now. The Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs will not meet in the World Series. With both teams five outs away from the Fall Classic and with three-run leads, the Curse of the Goat (Cubs) and the Curse of the Bambino (Red Sox) struck again as a fan and a struggling third baseman sent the two Cinderellas home with no glass slipper. Instead, we get the New York Yankees, with 26 World Championships, and the underdog Florida Marlins, who have never lost a postseason series. In just their 11th year, the Marlins will make their second trip to the Series.

Women's B-ball looks to score

This year, Head coach Shann Hart, forward Chanel Hunt and guard Chanel Spriggs return, determined not to let another opportunity for Patriot League supremacy elude them. Although the Eagles lost four players, the squad they have now is one of quickness, defense, improved offense and senior leadership.

Curse haunts the MLB

Only five outs stood between the Boston Red Sox and the World Series on Thursday night and most Red Sox fans were convinced the curse had been broken. The team had a chance to win their first championship since 1918. Same was the case on Tuesday night, when the Chicago Cubs were five outs away from heading to their first World Series in what seemed like centuries.

Men beat Colgate 3-2 in Homecoming

To a fan, junior Peter Philipakos' 63rd minute strike may have looked like an insurance goal at the time, pushing the Eagles' lead over Colgate to 3-1, but if this season has taught AU Men's Soccer anything, it's the value of insurance.

Sports
Field Hockey streak ends at 10

The AU Field Hockey team split its back-to-back road games this weekend, defeating Holy Cross on Saturday falling to Boston University on Sunday. The team shut out Holy Cross, 3-0, as it won its fourth straight Patriot League game and improved its record to 11-1 overall.
