Either the Crimson or the Big Green could clinch the North Division title this weekend.
The Crimson employed solid pitching and an explosive offensive attack in order to swept Yale with four convincing wins, maintaining its unblemished record in conference play.
Harvard (23-11, 9-0 Ivy) halted Princeton’s (14-22, 6-7) three-game win streak and maintained its undefeated record in the Ivy League.
Named to the second team All-Ivy in her sophomore campaign, Ricciardone has pitched at an even higher level in 2014. The Slidel, La., native is 11-5 in the circle this year and has posted a team best 1.90 ERA.
The Harvard softball team did not trail once against Brown this weekend to remain undefeated in the Ivy League.
The Harvard softball team is riding an 18-game winning streak into the final stretch of its season. With wins this weekend against Dartmouth, the squad could clinch the Division Title.
Though Ivy League play has commenced, Harvard continued its hot streak against the Rams with another dominant performance in the 5-1 victory. Junior pitcher Laura Ricciardone took the circle and the spotlight for the Crimson on the day.
The Crimson went undefeated this weekend against Penn and Columbia, winning three and storming back to tie up a game against the defending conference champion Quakers, which will be completed at a later date.
In conference play, Harvard will need more clutch hitting, especially if it hopes to overtake Dartmouth and Penn in the Ivy League standings.
Last season, then-freshman pitcher Morgan Groom started 19 games, posted the third-best ERA in the Ivy League at 2.58, and finished in the league’s top five with 96 strikeouts. Despite those electric numbers, Groom has gone from the number one option in the circle to the third for the Harvard softball team.
At the top of the 10th inning, freshman designated hitter Savannah Bradley stepped up to the plate with a runner on second base.
To say that co-captains Shelbi Olson and Kasey Lange have merely had an impact on the Harvard softball program would be an understatement. In fact, the duo has propelled the Crimson both offensively and defensively for much of their careers.
