This weekend, freshman Meagan Popp helped the women’s swimming and diving team to its 12th Ivy League championship. At the meet, she set three school records in the 200 IM, 100 breast, and 200 breast events, resulting in a first, second, and tied for first placement, respectively. But several other Crimson athletes also had stellar performances this week as well.
Tommy McCarthy, Men's Basketball
After Harvard made an unlikely comeback from a 21-point second half deficit in its game against Cornell, Tommy McCarthy sealed the Crimson victory with a two-pointer with 5.5 seconds remaining.
McCarthy not only sunk the near-buzzer winning shot but also finished the game with a career high of 21 points and eight assists. His new record eclipsed his former 17-point career high set the night before against Columbia.
Hannah Allchurch, Women’s Swimming and Diving
Freshman diver Hannah Allchurch had a stellar performance for the Harvard women’s swimming and diving team at the Ivy League Championships. Allchurch took home the gold in the 3-meter event, breaking the pool record with a score of 334.95 and earning the Crimson 32 points for the meet in the process.
Additionally, Allchurch was one of the six Harvard divers to qualify to compete in the A Final for the 3-meter. Occupying six of the eight positions in this final and placing well, the divers earned the team a combined total of 153 points with Allchurch spearheading the charge in second place.
Seb Lloyd, Men’s Ice Hockey
After helping the team earn a share of the Ivy League title one-night prior, Seb Lloyd assisted in securing the men’s hockey team a 7-4 victory over Colgate Saturday night.
The British Columbia, Canada native earned two points this game with a pivotal goal at the start of the second period to lead the Crimson offense past the Raiders.
Julia Glynn, Women’s Lacrosse
The Long Island, N.Y. native helped the Crimson to a resounding 16-8 victory in its season-opening away game against Hofstra.
Glynn scored six goals against The Pride on eight shots, marking the most goals for a single player since junior Marissa Romeo tallied the same amount last year against Boston College.
