In his 38th season as head coach, Dave Fish '72 looks to earn his 22nd Ivy League title and 22nd NCAA tournament appearance with the Harvard men's tennis team.
In his 38th season as a Harvard head coach, Dave Fish '72 is the brains behind an Ivy League tennis dynasty.
Despite entering the weekend behind both teams in the Ancient Eight, the No. 31 Crimson (14-6, 3-1 Ivy) swept both the Quakers (6-11, 2-2) and Tigers (12-10, 2-3) by a score of 4-0.
The No. 34 Crimson had an uneven road trip, getting blanked by surging Columbia, 7-0, on Saturday, before turning things around against Cornell Sunday afternoon.
The No. 30 Crimson outlasted the Red Storm, overcoming a slow start to capture its seventh win in eight all-time matchups against St. Johns.
Last season, the Harvard men’s tennis team took home the title at the Mission Valley Spring Classic, defeating the Drake Bulldogs. This year, Drake returned the favor.
Junior Shaun Chaudhuri, shown here in earlier action, clinched the Harvard men's tennis match over St. Johns with a 6-2, 6-4 win. The team posted a 5-2 victory to close out non-conference play.
In its final matches before its annual spring break trip, the Harvard men’s tennis team was in top form, besting Michigan State, 5-2, and downing Bryant, 6-1, on Saturday at the Murr Center.
The No. 24 Crimson displayed poise in finishing off a 4-3 win against No. 29 Northwestern and dominance in a 6-1 margin over the Terriers, while coming up short against No. 22 Memphis.
The top-seeded Crimson dropped just one match en route to the championship round but was swept by the second-seeded Lions.
Harvard athletes are accustomed to competing on the national level, but seldom do they have the opportunity to cross oceans and play in international tournaments. Eric Butorac, a volunteer coach on the Harvard men’s tennis team, did just that this past January at the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia.
After starting its spring season with two losses, the Harvard men’s tennis team (2-2) turned things around, defeating both No. 39 Minnesota (4-4) and No. 34 Tulsa (6-4) on the road.
In Mississippi, the No. 26 Harvard men's tennis team lost to No. 13 Mississippi State, 4-3, before falling to No. 18 South Carolina, 4-0 at the ITA Kickoff Weekend.
