Middlebury steals victory on Senior Day with second-half comeback

The sun shone down on the Bello Field turf on Saturday afternoon, while the temperature hovered in the mid-50s — perfect conditions for a lacrosse game. No. 6 Tufts (11–3, 7–2 NESCAC) played host to No. 8 Middlebury (12–2, 8–1 NESCAC) in a contest with real ramifications for conference tournament seeding. It was also the last guaranteed home contest for Tufts’ three seniors — midfielder […]

No. 6 Jumbos continue strong run with convincing results

The No. 6 Tufts women’s lacrosse team (10–1, 6–0 NESCAC) won all three of its games in the last week, extending its winning streak to six games leading up to what figures to be a difficult end to the regular season. On Sunday, the Jumbos defeated the Babson Beavers (6–5) in a non-conference game in Wellesley, Mass. The hosts got on the board […]

Jumbos begin season with commanding win over NESCAC rival

The Tufts women’s lacrosse team (1–0) opened its 2018 season with a bang on Saturday, dominating then-13th-ranked Hamilton (0–1) with a score of 17–4.

Tufts to open 2018 campaign against Hamilton on Saturday

The No. 19 Tufts women’s lacrosse team will kick off its 2018 season on Saturday with a home matchup against its NESCAC rival, No. 13 Hamilton. The team hopes to build momentum for the rest of the season with an opening-day victory, as it did last year against MIT, though it won’t be so easy. In 2017, the Jumbos put up a […]

Four Jumbos graduate after mixed season

Unless they are granted an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, the Jumbos will have finished the 2017 season with an overall record of 10-6, 5-5 in the conference. At the beginning of the season, graduating senior quad-captain Olivia Veillette noted that this was a transition year for the team after graduating both top scorers and […]

Strong offensive performances notch Tufts a pair of NESCAC wins

The Jumbos (5-3, 2-3 NESCAC ) won both conference games they played in the first week of April. Victories over the Conn. College Camels (1-7, 0-5) and the Williams Ephs (4-5, 1-4) gave the team its first wins in what has been a highly competitive NESCAC season thus far. On March 28, before Tufts’ wins against Conn. College and Williams, sophomore attacker […]

From basketball court to lacrosse field, Dillon builds on prolific Tufts sports career

Entering Tufts as a member of the Class of 2018, rising junior Lauren Dillon may not have expected to take over as point guard for the women’s basketball team — a 2014 NESCAC Champion and Final Four participant — especially before conference play even started. She also may not have expected to be a two-sport varsity athlete, competing both on the […]

Jumbos pick up momentum with close wins over spring break

Tufts’ current senior class has beaten every other NESCAC team except for Trinity. Until this Saturday, that is. In a true nail-biter, the No. 11 women’s lacrosse team failed No. 10 Trinity 10-9 on Saturday in front of a home crowd at Bello Field. Leading 8-7 through the first half, the Jumbos allowed the Bantams […]
