Class is now in session for Duke’s quarterbacks

(09/03/10 8:00am)

One of the most important classes at Duke this fall semester can’t be found in ACES. It’s not on file at the registrar’s office. Its enrollment this semester is limited to just four students. There is no classroom available for its sessions, so the four meet nearly every morning at 7:15 in an office on the second floor of the Yoh Football Center.

Duke duo wins regional title

(10/20/09 8:00am)

How do you improve a tennis team that lost more than half the doubles points it played in 2009?  With a solid right-handed player returning in Reid Carleton, the Blue Devils couldn’t go wrong by bringing in prized lefty recruit Henrique Cunha from Brazil. That approach has worked dazzlingly for Duke so far, as Carleton and Cunha emerged as champions from the ITA Carolina Regionals.
