Cheer your hearts out: 4/27 – 4/29

Sam Hurster '14 and the rest of the lax squad battle Dartmouth for a spot in the Ivy League playoffs.

Just because there are no more recaps coming your way in The Herald doesn’t mean you should stop cheering for Bruno. While everyone else relaxes during reading period or stresses out about finals, your fellow classmates are donning uniforms and hoping to keep their dreams alive. So while you’re lounging around during reading period, take a walk over to the athletic complexes to see these competitions:

Friday, April 27

Baseball and softball have doubleheaders against Yale at 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m., respectively.

Saturday, April 28 Continue Reading

Cheer your hearts out: 4/13 – 4/15

Co-captain Robbie Schlesinger '12 and the rest of the men's lax crew hope to beat Yale at home under Friday night lights.

One of the most beloved spring sports is having one of its biggest games of the season in front of its home town crowd. You know what this means? This means you have to cheer your hearts out. Because they’re your fellow classmates. And because we don’t like Yale.

Lacrosse isn’t sophisticated enough for you, you say? Here’s the full weekend home schedule:

Friday, April 13
If men’s lacrosse loses to Yale at 7 p.m., we’re going to blame Friday the Thirteenth. Continue Reading

Cheer your hearts out: 4/6 – 4/8

A new study has found that fans approve of pitchers avenging teammates by beaning batters.

The athletics department is gettin’ cray this week. In case you haven’t heard, Jack Hayes was appointed the next athletic director at Brown. This is us pretending that most of you care about the man behind the curtain. We know. You just want to watch your fellow classmates beast other teams. Here are your opportunities to do so this weekend:

Friday, April 6

W. tennis takes on the Tigers at 2 p.m.
Softball also plays at 2 p.m., against the Big Red. So who do you hate more, Princeton or Cornell?

Saturday, April 7

W. tennis takes to the courts again at noon against Penn.
Baseball and softball both have to defend their home turf against Princeton at 12:30pm.

Sunday, April 8

Cheer your hearts out: 3/16 – 3/18

Cubby says hi. He also waves his hands in motions that suggest he wants you to cheer.

Fun fact: Did you know that Cubby used to sport a pair of pants? Why would you want to steal Cubby’s pants? Why did Cubby have pants in the first place? Why does Cubby exist in the first place? None of this makes any sense. But we love Cubby anyway. You know why? Because he gets everyone to cheer their hearts out by pumping his arms and clapping and doing other gestures we can’t always understand! Cubby wants to see you at these home events this weekend:*

Friday, March 16
W. tennis aces Stony Brook at 5 p.m. The match will most likely be inside due to rain.

Saturday, March 17
M. tennis gets up early to take on Stony Brook at 10 a.m. This match might be outside because Saturday is forecasted to be sunny.
Gymnastics vaults over Southern Connecticut at 1 p.m.

Sunday, March 18
W. lacrosse rips twine against Quinnipiac at 1 p.m.

Your other not-as-cute-as-Cubby Bears will be roaming around other school’s territories. Cheer for them in your hearts.

*We actually have no idea what Cubby does or does not want you to do, and in all likelihood, Cubby may not attend any of these games either. Though we hope he does.

Cheer your hearts out: 3/10 – 3/11

Women's lacrosse brings in the spring this weekend with its home opener.

In case you haven’t noticed the nice weather, or don’t know to “spring forward” this weekend due to Daylight Saving Time, we have news for you: it’s spring! And what better way to enjoy the sun than to cheer on the women’s lacrosse team? (Don’t actually answer this question.) Anyway, here are the two opportunities this weekend you have to show your fellow classmates how much you love them as they entertain you with their athleticism:

Saturday, March 10

Women’s lacrosse takes on the Tigers at 1 p.m. in its home opener.

Sunday, March 11

Gymnastics will vault and high beam and such against Cornell at 1 p.m.

This is the height of the transition from winter to spring sports, so many teams won’t be competing this weekend (the baseball and softball teams are already taking a break? What?). But the men’s lacrosse team needs some help, so cheer for them in your hearts.

Also, want to know if ice hockey captain Jack Maclellan ’12 gets signed with the Nashville Predators, in other exciting Brown sports news? Follow @BDH_Sports on Twitter for all the latest sports news.

Cheer your hearts out: 2/24 – 2/26

The men’s tennis squad has come out strong this season with an 8-3 record. The Bears face BC this weekend.

Because winter sports are winding down their regular seasons and the spring Bears are awakening slowly from their season-long slumber, there aren’t many home games this weekend.

Both hockey squads will be elsewhere this weekend, with the women’s ice hockey team taking on No. 3 Cornell in the playoffs. It is the first time since 2006 that the squad has made it to the post-season. This is why we cheer. Continue Reading
