Spring Sports

July-August 2004

Rowing

The men's heavyweight crew capped its second consecutive undefeated season by repeating as national champions at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association regatta in Camden, N.J. Harvard won the Ten Eyck Cup for overall heavyweight supremacy. The varsity had previously won the Eastern Sprints, where the Crimson took home both the Rowe and Jope Cups for dominance in heavyweight and lightweight events, respectively. Harvard captured five of the top six Sprints events as the freshman and JV heavyweight eights, and freshman and JV lightweight crews, also won. Postseason, the varsity was headed for international competition at the FISA World Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland, and at the Henley Royal Regatta in England.

The women's lightweight varsity crew triumphed in the Eastern Sprints, while the heavyweight boat took the silver medal, one second behind Princeton.

 

Tennis

The men's tennis team (21-6, 7-0 Ivy) repeated as Ivy League champions and beat Tulane in the NCAAs and nearly upset (4-3) Illinois, the top team in the nation. Senior Dave Lingman was again named Ivy League Player of the Year.

The women's team (14-10, 7-0 Ivy) also defended their Ivy title without a loss. Courtney Bergman '05 was named Ivy League Player of the Year.
