Yale was on the table this weekend for the Big Green and our athletes of the week feasted on the Bulldogs. Freshman Lily Lockhart earned wins in the shotput and the discus for the women's track team. Sophomore Charlie Broom swept the Bulldogs at No. 1 singles and doubles before downing the Brown Bears in singles.
Their efforts are rewarded by being named the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week.
