Winter Sports

Women's Ice Hockey

By early December, the icewomen (7-1, 4-0 ECAC) were ranked first in the nation. Powered by recent Olympians Jennifer Botterill '02 ('03)‚ Angela Ruggiero '02 ('04), and Julie Chu '06—who own, collectively, five Olympic gold and silver medals—the Crimson showed its firepower early. Harvard blew out its first two Ivy opponents, Dartmouth, 9-2, and Cornell, 8-0, then edged Brown, 3-2. Only an early 4-3 loss to Minnesota marred their record.


Men's Ice Hockey

The men's team (7-3, 7-2 ECAC) handled most early opponents well, losing only in road games at Brown, Cornell, and Boston University. Juniors Tyler Kolarik and Tim Pettit led scorers with 13 points apiece, followed by seniors Brett Nowak and Dominic Moore, at 12 each.


Men's Basketball

The hoopsters (2-1) started well, led in scoring by seniors Patrick Harvey and Brady Merchant, who averaged 15.0 and 14.3 points apiece through three games.


Women's Basketball

The women's team (3-1) looks poised to retain its Ivy title. At the First Tennessee tournament, Harvard took an 84-44 drubbing at the hands of host Vanderbilt, but bounced back with a 69-58 win over Central Michigan. That victory was the three hundredth at Harvard for coach Kathy Delaney-Smith, now in her twenty-first season, and is the most ever recorded by any Harvard basketball coach.
