Fall Sports Championships

Field Hockey

The stickwomen (11-7, 6-1 Ivy) won a share (with Penn) of their first Ivy title since 1991. The Crimson's 3-1 victory over the Quakers earned them a trip to the NCAAs, where the eventual national champions, Wake Forest, knocked out Harvard, 7-1. Shelley Maasdorp '05 and Jennifer McDavitt '06 made First Team All-Ivy. Maasdorp, who led the league in scoring with 41 points, was named Ivy League Player of the Year.

 

Women's Volleyball

For the first time in program history, Harvard (15-10, 10-4 Ivy) earned an Ivy League championship, sharing the title with Yale, Princeton, and Cornell. Yale won a four-team playoff at Union College for the NCAA berth. Senior Kaego Ogbechie won her second Ivy League Player of the Year award, and this year became only the fourth Crimson player to record 1,000 career kills. Laura Mahon '08 was Ivy Rookie of the Year.
