During an exciting weekend of games in Providence, R.I., the Harvard women’s soccer team triumphed over two successive opponents to win the first-ever Ivy League Tournament in history. Thrilling wins against Princeton and Columbia capped the Crimson’s successful Ivy League season and guaranteed a spot in the upcoming NCAA tournament.
After an exciting start to the season, Harvard women’s soccer team began its Ivy League season with a match-up against one of its top rivals for the trophy: Brown. Although the Crimson did not achieve its desired result during that game, the team went on to sweep the opposition for three consecutive matches against conference opponents Columbia, Dartmouth, and Cornell to earn a conference record of 3-1.
Kicking off the weekend with two decisive doubleheader wins against Virginia Tech and local rival Boston University, the Crimson appeared undefeatable. This weekend, the No. 13 Harvard men’s tennis team put on a show in Cambridge, Mass. welcoming ACC foes No. 75 Virginia Tech and defending national champion No. 8 Virginia, alongside Boston University, for a three-day matchup at the Beren Tennis Center.
In a sport characterized by its downhill slopes, Harvard’s skiing season has been anything but downhill. The Crimson’s performance in the five races so far has shown great potential, not only for the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) regional carnival coming up this weekend but also for the NCAA Skiing Championships to be held in March at Lake Placid, N.Y..
