Fall Preview


The footballers hope to repeat last season’s winning record (8-2; 7-0 Ivy), which culminated in head coach Tim Murphy’s fourth Ivy League championship in 14 years on the job. Though the team lost nine starters to graduation, 22 return to defend the title. A prospectus of the 2008 season appears at gocrimson.com.


Men’s Soccer

Head coach Jamie Clark is green, but his team, which was 12-4-2 (5-2-0 Ivy) last year, is not. Clark starts his first season at Harvard, and first as head coach, with nine of 11 starters returning from a team that went to the first round of the NCAA championships in 2007. Follow devastating scorers Michael Fucito ’09 (see "Back on the Field") and André Akpan ’10 (see “Powers of the Pitch,” September-October 2007, page 74) at gocrimson.com.


Women’s Soccer

The netwomen look to improve on last year’s 10-6-1 (3-4-0 Ivy) record with the assistance of sophomore sensations Katherine Sheeleigh and Gina Wideroff. The young team welcomes eight new players even as it retains all 11 starters from the 2007 campaign.
