Palmer Set to Build on Coaching Success

September 2, 2016

Women’s soccer Head Coach Dan Palmer relies on three central tenets to push his team to reach its potential: hard work, relentless competitiveness and camaraderie. This mantra has turned the program around 180 degrees in Palmer’s first three years with the Athletics department. In just three seasons with the Yeowomen, Palmer and his squad have tallied 21 wins — in the five seasons before, the team struggled to win just 18 games. This year’s squad, which is upperclassmen-heavy, will look to...

Ouch, That Stings! The women’s basketball team earned a tough victory Nov. 24 over the Baldwin Wallace Yellow Jackets. The Yellow Jackets, ranked 25th in the nation, led for most of the contest, and when their lead extended to 10 points in the middle of the third quarter, it looked like the visitors might depart Philips gym with a win. Down by three with a little over a minute to play, junior forward Eleanor Van Buren knocked down a game-tying shot from beyond the arc, leveling the score at 61–61 and sending Philips gym into a frenzy. The Yeowomen then went on to get a crucial defensive stop, and senior captain Lind­sey Bernhardt hoisted up a layup in traffic for the go-ahead bucket. The Yeowomen are cu...

The volleyball team fell short this weekend in its effort to capture a North Coast Athletic Conference tournament title.

In the second set, Oberlin could not rebound, losing 25–20 at the...

Expectations were high for the men’s and women’s cross-country teams as they traveled to Gambier, Ohio, this past weekend to compete in the North Coast Athletic Confer­ence Championships.

Arthur would ultimately be Ober­lin’s lone champion, outlasting 2014 champion Logan Steiner of Allegheny College to win the individual men’s championship. Going into the race, Arthur ac­knowledged that he had expected that the individual competition would come down to Steiner and himself....

A powerful early shot from the Kenyon College Lords to the lower left corner of Ober­lin’s goal spelled defeat for the men’s soccer team at the North Coast Athletic Confer­ence semifinals on Wednes­day.

The loss to the Lords was all too familiar for the Yeomen, as they were also defeated by Kenyon...

Senior quarterback Lucas Poggiali scans the field to connect with one of his teammates.

Pog­giali broke the Yeomen record for yards thrown with 506 yards, a title previously held by Josh Mandel, OC ’13, with 454 yards. In doing so, he also became the first player in Yeomen history to pass the 500-yard benchmark. As a team, the...

The Oberlin women’s soccer team traveled to Wooster, Ohio, in the wind and rain last Satur­day night to face The College of Wooster but failed to find the back of its opponent’s net, losing to the tune of 2–0. This moves the Yeowomen to 5–4–1 for the sea­son and 0–2 in league play. The Yeowomen held the Fight­ing Scots scoreless for most of the first half, but eventually yielded with two seconds left to Wooster’s junior midfielder Liz Kantra, who capitalized on a powerful cross into the box and shot one past Oberlin first-year keeper Jordyn Morris. Wooster scored again in the 68th minute off of another well-placed service, but this time it was junior forward Kennedy Payne on the receiving end....
