Sports in Brief
The women’s team (12-5-1, 6-0-1 Ivy) had a banner campaign, winning the Ivy League championship outright to capture Harvard’s third title in the past four years. Among Ivy rivals this fall, only Cornell, which fought to a 2-2 tie after double overtime in Ithaca, was able even to tie the Crimson. In the first round of the NCAA tournament, Harvard lost to Boston University, 3-0.
Senior co-captain Melanie Baskind was unanimously named Ivy League Player of the Year; she led Harvard’s attack with eight goals and 24 points. Co-captain Lindsey Kowal ’12 and Peyton Johnson ’14 (next season’s co-captain with Catherine Coppinger ’13) also garnered First Team All-Ivy honors.
The men’s team (2-12-3, 0-6-1 Ivy) had a dismal fall, finishing last in the Ivies. All their losses, save two non-conference games, came by a single goal.
The men’s heavyweight crew won the Championship Eights event, the biggest prize at the Head of the Charles regatta in October. They finished well ahead of both the USRowing national team and Washington, national college champions.
