Winter Sports

March-April 2009

After a strong start that was followed by various disappointing midseason setbacks, the women’s team (11-7-3, 3-2 Ivy) reeled off a five-game winning streak, capped by an 8-0 thrashing of Boston University during the first round of the Beanpot tournament. Senior Sarah Vaillancourt, last year’s Kazmaier Award winner, led the offense with 14 goals and 30 points.

The men’s team (5-11-5, 1-3-3 Ivy) got knotted up in a plethora of ties, and in mid November stumbled into a two-month, 13-game winless streak before breaking the curse with a 3-1 victory over Union. Junior defenseman Alex Biega led the scoring with 15 points and 3 goals.
