Once the fall soccer season ends, Alex Adelabu ’15 is looking to devote himself to acting and yoga, learn how to swim and continue to focus on his Christian faith. Until then, the Big Green striker hopes to wreak havoc on the pitch and lead the Big Green (2-2) to an Ivy title and the NCAA Tournament.
The centerpiece of the men’s soccer team’s offense and a proven prolific goal-scorer who has notched 19 career tallies, Adelabu has begun his final season forcefully with 2 goals and 2 assists in five games.

Just this past June, Roman traveled to Manila to try out for Discovery Perlas Philippine Women’s Basketball team, where, after 10 days of training, she was told she made the national squad.
The team’s coach, Haydee Ong, and Roman have been in contact since high school, which Roman attended in her adopted hometown of White Plains, N.Y.

Though Stacey was on the team when it won gold at the 2013 Meco Cup in Füssen, Germany, she said she was nervous entering the locker room as she waited for the verdict.
The men’s tennis team heads to Princeton University and the women to the College of William and Mary this Friday following strong 2013-14 seasons, defined by last-second victories, crushing defeats and unprecedented success. Though no team tournaments take place in the fall, the individual outings can serve as important practice for the winter and spring.
Last season, the men’s team placed as high as 33rd in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings, the highest ever in program history. Its 5-2 Ivy League record marked its best performance in league play in more than 15 years, and its 18 victories set a program record.
The men’s soccer team notched its first win of the season on Sunday afternoon, taking down the Hofstra University Pride (2-2-2) on the road 2-1.

This week, I sat down with Kendall Kraus ’15, the co-captain of the women’s soccer team, before the team’s Sunday’s win against St. John’s University. So far this season, the Big Green is 1-2-1, with losses to No. 14 University of Portland and to the University of Washington. A 0-0 tie against Albany University last week and a 2-0 win over St. John’s University on Sunday extended the team’s unbeaten streak at Burnham Field to an impressive 14 games over the last three seasons. So far this season, Kraus has not registered a point, but has three shots on net.
