The men’s lacrosse team continues to search for an­swers as the season progresses. Before the break, the Yeo­men were 1–3 as they entered their game against the Ohio Wesleyan University Battling Bishops on March 19. The Yeomen’s defense could not withstand the Bat­tling Bishops’ offensive onslaught. It took a goal toward the end of the first half from senior attacker Nick Lobley to answer the Bishops’ 11–0 run. After a tough first half, the Yeomen kept the Bishops close to even in the second half, which led to a 19–9 loss for the Yeomen. A bright spot in the disappointing afternoon came when senior midfielder Alex Wright notched his first goal of the season. Wright felt that the team’s second-half...

The softball team stepped up to the plate Wednesday to take on the Ursuline College Arrows in Pepper Pike, Ohio. After two weeks of rest and preparation since their last game, the Yeowomen took the field to try to earn their first win of the season. In the first game of the doubleheader, the Arrows took an early 3–0 lead in the first inning. Ursuline would add another three runs in the fourth inning to put Oberlin down 6–0. The Yeowomen would not go down quietly, however, making a comeback bid in the top of the seventh, courtesy of a two-run homerun from junior pitcher and outfielder Tori Poplaski. Despite this, the Yeowomen were unable to continue their run, ultimately losing game one 6–2. Poplaski said...
