Fall Preview

Women’s Soccer

New head coach Ray Leone, who came to Harvard from Arizona State, leads the women booters into their fall season; he is the third head coach in three years, with predecessors Stephanie Erickson leaving after one season and Erica Walsh departing after a single, dreadful, 3-13-1 campaign last fall. But Walsh left Leone some gifted young play ers, including the Ivy League Rookie of the Year, Lauren Mann ’10, a goalkeeper, and Lizzy Nichols ’10, an all-Ivy defender who can also shoot. The Crimson also boasts perhaps the best crop of new recruits in the Ivies.


Despite the departure of record-breaking running back Clifton Dawson ’07, the footballers remain sturdy. Much of last year’s stingy defense returns, including all-Ivy cornerbacks Steven Williams ’08 and Andrew Berry ’09. The College Sporting News service has named Berry a preseason all-America candidate.
