You both lead the points, goals and assists categories. What do you attribute your individual success to? Matt Fox: Just growing up in a hotbed of lacrosse. I’ve been playing since I was six or seven years old, so I feel like we can see the field better than most ...

This week the Review sat down with women’s tennis players senior Brenna Sheldon, junior Grace Porter and sophomore Erin Johnson to discuss their recent spring break trip, past seasons’ success and what drew them to Oberlin. What are your thoughts on the season thus far? Brenna Sheldon: I think our season has been pretty good so far. We have had our ups and our downs; spring break was really tough.

The men’s tennis team faced seven teams in as many days during its spring break, finishing with a 3–4 record. They started things off in Hilton Head, SC, with a 9–0 loss to the Colby College Mules. Despite the loss, Head Coach Eric Ishida was still proud of his team’s effort in the match. “I’m proud of the way our guys played against a tough Colby team,” he said.

The men’s lacrosse team continued its season through the snow and cold last week, adding three losses and a win to its record. The Yeomen now sit at 5–5 overall and 0–3 in North Coast Athletic Conference play. The Yeomen started the break with a tough game against NCAC foe, the Ohio Wesleyan University Battling Bishops. Due to inclement weather earlier in the month, the Yeomen’s earlier home games were moved to neutral locations, this game marked the first time that the team played on Oberlin’s own Fred Shults Field. Oberlin had a balanced attack throughout the game, with four different Yeomen scoring, while junior goalie Erickson Andrews tallied a season-high 15 saves. However, the team’s effort was not...

Over spring break, the women’s tennis team headed to Hilton Head, SC, and Fredericksburg, VA, where they played five matches, dropping all of them. It was one of the toughest sets of teams the program has faced in a long time. Although they did not come away with any team victories, the experiences the Yeowomen gained throughout the week of competition were valuable. “We knew we’d have our work cut out for us, playing five top-30 teams in a row, including the No. 1 team in the nation,” Head Coach Constantine Ananiadis said. “But we didn’t drive 2,000 miles to play teams that wouldn’t challenge us. We wouldn’t have it any other way. So overall, although we didn’t win any team matches, we proved...

The team headed into the week with an 11–7 record, and had high expectations given its strong season last year.

They played SUNY-Geneseo, Middle­bury College, UNC Wilmington, UNC Asheville, North Park University, Davidson College and Brandeis University.

The softball team headed to Clermont, FL, over spring break, where the team played eight games, winning only two of them. The Yeowomen began the trip with a 1–5 loss to Elmhurst College and a 4–7 loss to Rutgers University-Camden. Sophomore Jenny Hill and junior Jenny Goldsmith both went 2–3 in the second loss of the day. Oberlin came out strong the next day, earning a close 4–3 win against Colby College. “We kept the energy up the entire time, and I think that definitely contributed to the win,” Hill said. Hill played an important role in the victory when she had a walk-off single down the left field line in the 10th inning of the game. “There were probably 100 people watching the game,...
