Winter Sports in Progress

Ice Hockey

The men (8-11-2 overall, 6-8-1 ECAC) continued strong play that often has come up a goal or two short. By midseason, their only Ivy League win was a 4-1 November defeat of Yale. Yet, right after exams, the Crimson showed their strength in Providence, where league-leading Brown needed overtime to eke out its 2-1 victory. Tom Cavanagh '05 led scorers with 21 points on 12 goals and 9 assists; Tim Pettit '04 had 19 points on 6 goals and 13 assists.

After a dramatic 14-0-1 start, Harvard's women skaters (15-2-1, 6-2-0 ECAC) dropped two games to Ivy rivals Dartmouth and Princeton (where the teams drew a combined 21 penalties) before returning to their winning ways by overwhelming Yale, 5-1. Nicole Corriero '05 led the scoring with 43 points on 25 goals and 18 assists.

Basketball

Harvard's men's team (2-15, 1-3 Ivy) got off to a rough start, but won their first Ivy contest over Dartmouth, 56-54.

The women basketballers (8-8, 1-2 Ivy), Ivy champions the past two years, will need a surge to three-peat after losing to Dartmouth and Cornell. Senior Hana Peljto scored 39 points against Lafayette to tie Harvard's single-game record, set by Allison Feaster '98.
