This upcoming weekend, the Harvard women’s soccer team will bid farewell to its departing class of six seniors in its last home game of the regular season.
The Crimson is set to take on Columbia for Senior Day this Saturday at Ohiri Field at 11 a.m.
This year’s seniors—Kerry Kartsonis, Caroline Kutler, Katherine Kuzma, Katherine Sheeleigh, Katherine Thurber, and Gina Wideroff—have been on the Harvard squad for a total of two Ivy League Championships and 36 wins over the course of the last four years, and they will try to finish their collegiate careers with one more home win over the Lions this weekend.
Each Thursday, The Crimson will compile a series of unique statistics about Harvard's sports scene. Welcome to the Magic of Numbers—without the problem sets. We'll do the math for you.
1: Number of starts by junior quarterback Collier Winters this season, which came in last week’s 30-14 shellacking of Dartmouth.
212: Yards thrown by Winters in the win over the Big Green.
-18: Yards rushing allowed by Harvard’s defense against Columbia last year. The stout run defense–led by tackles Josue Ortiz and Chuks Obi–will look to again stuff the Lions’ running attack this Saturday at home.
53: Wins against Columbia all-time for Harvard. The Lions have mustered only 14 wins against the Crimson.
With its 3-2 loss to Dartmouth, the Harvard women’s soccer team may have just missed its shot at a three-peat as Ivy League champions, but certain team members still have reason to celebrate.

They're going to the 'ship.
Classmates Esther Lofgren '07-'09 and Henrik Rummel '09 are bound for the Grand Finals for a chance to win the World Championships. The road to the finals was relatively painless for Lofgren, whose 8+ won its heat convincingly. Rummel, on the other hand, had to take a slightly longer route: after taking second in its heat, his four had to brave repechage to make it to the finals.
While most of us were busy planning costumes for a weekend of Halloween mayhem, Francesca Den Hartog ’83 readied herself for a different sort of celebration.
Last weekend, the former Harvard women’s lacrosse captain and two-time All-America honoree was inducted, along with seven other lacrosse greats, into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
