Fall Sports

Field Hockey

The stickwomen (5-1, 3-0 Ivy) got off to a fast start, knocking off Penn, Brown, and Yale in their first three Ivy contests. Goalie Katie Zacarian '04 notched three shutouts in the first six games. Sophomore midfielder Shelley Maasdorp, along with sisters Kate McDavitt '04 and Jen McDavitt '06—both midfielders—have helped spark the scoring.


Men's Soccer

The men's side (6-1, 1-0 Ivy) ran off five straight victories after a 5-1 blowout loss to Rhode Island. The Crimson's 2-1 win over Brown was their first against the Bruins since 1996, the year of Harvard's last Ivy title. Junior midfielders Ladd Fritz (seven goals) and Kevin Ara (eight goals) have led the offense.


Women's Soccer

After early losses to three nationally ranked teams, the women booters (3-4, 1-0 Ivy) shut out Brown, 1-0, but lost 2-1 to Hartford. Senior forward Joey Yenne, fifth on Harvard's all-time scoring list, had four goals and four assists to lead the Crimson in scoring.


Women's Volleyball

The female spikers (4-6, 1-0 Ivy) won the Dartmouth Invitational tournament, shutting out Dartmouth and Maine by 3-0 scores. Captain Mindy Jellin '03, averaging 10.5 assists per game, could become Harvard's all-time assist leader by season's end. Middle hitter Kaego Ogbechie '05 was tops in kills with 164 (4.21 per game average).
