Female Athlete of the Year Runner-Up: Jillian Dempsey

On a squad that preaches “Team First,” it might seem difficult to single out and recognize an individual player. But co-captain Jillian Dempsey is no ordinary player.

Men's Basketball

Male Athlete of the Year Runner-Up: Siyani Chambers

As the first freshman in conference history to be selected to the All-Ivy First Team, the national leader among freshmen in minutes per game played, and the runner-up for rookies in assists per game with 5.6 a game, it is safe to say that point guard Siyani Chambers had a memorable first year on campus.

Women's Basketball

Female Athlete of the Year Runner-Up: Victoria Lippert

“Victoria is maybe at the top of the list of all student-athletes I’ve coached in the 30-odd years I’ve been coaching,”Crimson coach Kathy Delaney-Smith said. “If she’s not the best, she’s one of the best athletes who can handle pressure and who wants the ball in her hands with a chance to win.”


Female Athlete of the Year Runner-Up: Kasey Lange

Male Athlete of the Year Runner-Up: Wesley Saunders

Following the departures of the entire 2012 backcourt, the Harvard men’s basketball team needed someone to step up. Oliver McNally had graduated, senior Brandyn Curry had taken a leave of absence, and sophomore Corbin Miller had left on a two-year mission for the Church of Latter Day Saints. The only person left in the rotation was 6’6” sophomore wing Wesley Saunders.


Male Athlete of the Year Runner-Up: Kyle Juszczyk

A two-time All-American selection, Juszczyk was invaluable to the offense as a blocker for the top rushing offense in the Ivy League. But the senior’s role was expanded beyond the traditional tight end position, as Juszczyk became Chapple’s primary target and led the receiving corps.

Female Athlete of the Year: Amanda Sobhy

Sobhy became the first player in over a decade to clinch back-to-back Ramsay Cups. But her quest is not over yet, as the sophomore hopes to become the first player in over 30 years to win four straight individual national titles.
