THE HOTTEST SHOT ON ICE Tammy Shewchuck '01 has scored more than anyone else who has ever played ice hockey at Harvard.

Harvard Sports Information
Women's Hockey

The icewomen (23-10, 9-3 Ivy) had a thrilling campaign. They won the Beanpot, 4-3 in overtime against Northeastern. In the Ivies they were second to Dartmouth (top-ranked in the nation for most of the season), who also knocked Harvard out of the ECAC tournament, 3-1. At the first NCAA women's tournament, the eventual champions, Minnesota-Duluth, beat Harvard 6-3; however, the Crimson bested Dartmouth, 3-2 in their final game.

Ivy League Player of the Year Jennifer Botterill '02 won the Patty Kazmeier Award, the top individual honor in women's hockey. Her linemate Tammy Shewchuck '01 (see right) was one of the other two finalists.

Men's Hockey

The icemen (16-15-2, 5-3-2 Ivy) were second to Yale in the Ivies, but eliminated the Bulldogs from the ECAC tournament with 5-4 and 7-4 victories. But a 5-2 loss to Cornell took Harvard out of the ECACs.

Wrestling

The Ivy champion Crimson grapplers (9-4) won Harvard's first-ever Eastern Collegiate Wrestling Association title. Co-captain Matt Picarsic (133 lbs.) and heavyweight Dawid Rechul '02 won individual titles. Rechul pinned four opponents and was named Most Outstanding Wrestler, the first heavyweight so honored since 1940.

Men's Basketball

The men's team (14-12, 7-7 Ivy) peaked with a 77-62 blowout of Penn, breaking the Quakers' 25-game Ivy win streak. Princeton stole a 69-67 heartbreaker at the buzzer the next night, but Harvard finished the season with two Ivy wins to claim fourth in the Ancient Eight.

Women's Basketball

The women hoopsters (12-15 overall, 9-5 Ivy) finished second to Penn in the league, ending the season brightly with their second win over Dartmouth, 73-60.
