(11/07/17 11:04am)

In the final game of the regular season, the Judges drew even with New York University. After two regulation periods and two overtime periods, the score was locked at 1-1 and the game finished in a tie. Before the game, the team honored its two seniors, forwards Samantha Schwartz ’18 and Haliana Burhans ’18, who played in their final regular season games as Brandeisians. This draw left the Judges with a final record of 11-3-3 including 2-3-2 in the University Athletic Association. This placed them fourth in the University Athletic Association, tied with the NYU Violets. 

VOLLEYBALL: Judges should be proud of their incredible year

(11/07/17 11:01am)

Members of the Brandeis women’s volleyball team, head coach Alesia Vaccari, family, friends and fans of this squad have an awful lot to be proud of this season. As the sports editor of the Justice, I have been covering this team for over a year now and I am truly inspired by this team’s incredible transformation. In just one year, the Judges improved their numbers in every major team category per set: assists, digs, service aces, blocks, hitting percentage and kills. Last year’s team finished the regular season with a 7-21 record and ended the year on a 12-game losing streak. This season, the Judges finished with a winning record at 15-14, including an outstanding 9-2 mark at home.

That’s a big deal; congratulations to them. In the immediate wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation and after years of extreme losing, the Astros have a fascinating and inspirational story that deserves to be told. Look elsewhere for that column. This is about the losers.

The men’s soccer team had a challenging slate of games this past week, facing off against two formidable opponents in Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Chicago. The squad opened the week with a nail-biter, narrowly edging WashU in a riveting golden-goal victory in double-overtime. The team, however, could not keep its good fortunes going into its contest against University Athletic Association rival UChicago. In a tight match between the two postseason regulars, UChicago was able to pull out a victory over a Brandeis squad that continues to struggle against elite opponents.

Both teams ran hard, but the competition was stiff and the teams both placed sixth out of eight teams competing.

Going into this National Basketball Association season, there was much excitement and suspense. New acquisitions during the offseason had led to the creation of even more superteams, consolidating the NBA with even more elite teams. However, even though the buzz around the league was tangible, every basketball fan knew the ultimate truth; the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers would be meeting in the Finals come June. A little wrinkle in the plan has developed with both teams getting off to similarly sluggish starts, though.
