At the NCAA tournament in March, Jesse Jantzen '04 (left) became only the second Harvard grappler to win a national championship, which he did in the 149-pound class. (John Harkness '38, who won at 175 pounds in 1938, saw Jantzen's victory in St. Louis.) Jantzen's dominance earned him the title of Most Outstanding Wrestler for the tourney.

Ice Hockey

For the first time ever, one college won both the men's and women's ECAC Championships. The Crimson men vanquished Clarkson, 3-2, while the women took out St. Lawrence, 6-1. Maine's men rallied to beat Harvard, 5-4, in the NCAA first round; the icewomen went all the way to the NCAA final before falling to Minnesota, 6-2. Senior defender Angela Ruggiero won the Patty Kazmaier Award as the top player among college women.
