Brandeis tennis riding high

When the ball bounces your way, there is little sweeter. Right now, Brandeis tennis is riding high as the mens team walked out of Norton, MA a 7-2 winner over regional rivals Wheaton College.

Bad breaks plague Judges

Varsity baseball fought hard in Florida, coming into the last two games of the UAA tournament with a 4-1 record and with momentum on their side. Alas, baseball is a game of cruel reversals of fortune and teams at the top quickly find themselves looking through the other way thanks to little things like a misplayed grounder, a foul ball that was inches from being a home run. Yes breaks can make or kill a squad and a two game skid culminating with a 11-5 loss to Case-Western leaving the Judges to settle for 2nd place.

Debate team hosts annual tourney

The Brandeis Academic Debate and Speech Society (BADASS) hosted its annual tournament this past weekend here in the North Academic Quad. Teams from all over the east coast debated at the competition including Princeton, Johns Hopkins, Harvard and others. Many more were scheduled to arrive, but were unable to attend due to the inclement weather. Still, the tournament had a field of 37 teams, a small but respectable number of competitors for a tournament. The debaters were housed in residence halls on campus, mostly in the North residence quad. Many members of the Brandeis community were involved in the processes of judging, housing, and facilitating the tournament. In the end a Harvard team and a Princeton team were able to make it to the finals round. After a heated and entertaining debate, the Harvard team ended up winning the tournament.

With precarious housing, students find aid from strangers

Elyssa Kanet 08 was in despair when she recieved her housing number in the mail. Number 2,156, printed clearly on her Residence Life form. First I laughed it off, she said, but then I realized it was actually a problem. It came down to a week before housing decisions and I still hadnt made any plans. The situation was similar for Jeremy Heyman, 08. I was number 2,146, so I wasnt getting any housing. My friends were all getting awful numbers as well.
