Play Ball


Harvard (21-20-1 overall) finished the Ivy season with the league’s best record, 14-6, winning the tough Red Rolfe division by one game over Dartmouth. Gehrig division winner Princeton brought an 11-9 record (and 1-7 mark against Rolfe opponents) to the Ivy Championship series, but nonetheless upset Harvard there, 9-3 and 8-2. The past 11 Ivy titles have gone to either Harvard or Princeton, with the Tigers now leading that skein, 6-5.



The softballers had a 20-24 overall record and a 6-8 mark in Ivy contests, good for fifth place in the league. Pitcher Amanda Watkins ’08 was a second team all-Ivy selection, with catcher Erin Halpenny ’06 and third baseman Rachel Murray ’06 earning honorable mentions.
