The footballers hope to better last year's 5-5 (3-4 Ivy) record, good for fifth place in the league. The experienced offensive line, anchored by all-Ivy captain Mike Clare '01, is a strength. The graduation of two all-time Harvard leaders, back Chris Menick and pass receiver Terence Patterson, poses offensive questions. All-Ivy linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski has also moved on, and graduation has thinned the linebacker corps, but the defensive line looks reliable.
Coach John Kerr's second campaign, after last fall's 6-9-0 season (3-4 Ivy, fifth place) should be interesting. Nick Lenicheck '02, who had 14 points on 4 goals and 6 assists last year, will help take up the scoring and playmaking. In goal, returnee Mike Meagher '02 last year lived up to his name, posting a meager goals-against average of 1.87.
After a strong league championship campaign (14-2, 7-0 Ivy) last year, the netwomen would like to repeat as league champs and go further in postseason play. Look for strong offense from sophomore forwards Joey Yenne and Beth Totman and junior forward Colleen Moore. Cheryl Gunther '03, who sparkled in goal last year with a 0.44 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage, will return to the net.
