  • NCAA winter and spring championships cancelled

    The NCAA has cancelled the remainder of its 2020 winter and spring championships. This includes the Division I tournament, known as March Madness, and the Division III tournament Brockport is hosting.

  • Brockport to follow NCAA's policy for March Madness

    The NCAA did not specify what would happen with the Division II and Division III tournaments. The College at Brockport released a statement shortly after the NCAA with its intentions for the men's basketball team's Sweet 16 game against Tufts University on Saturday, March 14.

  • Women's lacrosse suffers first setback of 2020

    The College at Brockport women's lacrosse team has a grueling non-conference slate that should prepare the team for whatever is thrown its way during SUNYAC play. However, Brockport could trip up a few times along the way. For a team ranked in the IWLCA Coaches' top 25 at the beginning of the season, those losses will not help the Golden Eagles stay in the national picture.

  • Men's lacrosse starts season on a high note

    The College at Brockport is getting off to a much better start in the 2020 season than it did in 2019. Last season, Brockport lost three of its first four games and was never able to fully recover en route to a one-win conference record. This time around, the Golden Eagles have won two of their first three matchups and look to be on track for a much better season.

  • La Casa Rochester, New York

    One of the unfortunate things about life in Brockport is that the food scene is not very diverse. There are plenty of diners and pizza joints but not much authentic cultural food. In order to find truly authentic international cuisine, a trip to Rochester is necessary. Sometimes, you have to keep your eyes peeled to find a great spot.

  • Gymnastics suffers setback as regular season wraps up

    What seemed like another trip to Ithaca College for The College at Brockport gymnastics team on Sunday, Feb. 23, turned into a stunning defeat. Just a week later, Brockport suffered the same fate, and its spot in the NCGA ranking has dropped due to that.

  • Wrestling has three athletes competing at nationals

    After a highly successful regular season that saw The College at Brockport wrestling team go 9—1 in dual and tri-matches, the Golden Eagles were ready to move on to their postseason. With nine wrestlers finishing on the podium at the NCAA Mideast Regionals on Saturday, Feb. 29, and Sunday, March 1, at Ithaca College, the team announced its presence on a bigger stage.

  • Tyson Fury earns victory in heavyweight super fight

    Boxing has been able to draw the attention of the sporting world since the early 1900s. When watching sports became a pastime for people, boxing jumped to the forefront. Since then, boxing, specifically the heavyweight title fights, have been able to draw record crowds. Fighters such as Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson became household names for their respective reigns as heavyweight champion. On Saturday, Feb. 22, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder added to the legend of the heavyweight boxing title.

  • Baseball wins one of four in opening weekend

    In baseball, the adjustment from practicing indoors to playing outside is one that can take multiple games. For the pitchers, they are facing batters they are not familiar with and have to deal with whatever weather is present, which can affect their grip on the ball. Batters have to deal with a deeper backdrop that can affect their depth perception. With all those adjustments being made during the first weekend, The College at Brockport baseball team struggled in its first four games of the season.

  • Women's basketball enters SUNYAC Tournament at six seed

    In a year full of ups and downs for The College at Brockport women's basketball team, this past weekend was just another example of that trend. With SUNY New Paltz's win over SUNY Potsdam on Saturday, Feb. 22, Brockport had its spot in the SUNYAC Tournament locked up. However, the results of Friday's games in the league made Saturday's game at SUNY Oswego a must-win for Brockport.
