Soccer Champs

The men’s soccer squad (14-4-1, 5-1-1 Ivy) ended their season as Ivy League champions, ranked tenth in the nation. They reached the third round of the NCAA tournament after a bye and a 3-0 win over Monmouth before falling, 2-0, to Maryland, the defending national champions. Andre Akpan ’10 was named Ivy League Player of the Year and is Harvard’s all-time leading scorer with 127 points (47 goals, 33 assists); those 47 goals tie him with Chris Ohiri ’64 for a Harvard record. Brian Rogers ’13 was Ivy Rookie of the Year.

The women booters (9-7-1, 6-1 Ivy) also captured an outright Ivy championship after sharing it in 2008. Boston College ousted Harvard, 1-0, in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Leading scorer (21 points) Katherine Sheeleigh ’11 was a First Team all-Ivy selection.
