After sharing the 2008 Ivy League championship with Princeton, the Harvard women’s soccer team took the field this past fall with the rest of the Ancient Eight clamoring to take the Crimson down. But last year’s win was no fluke.
While the week belonged to the ladies of the distance medley team—juniors co-captain Thea Lee and Claire Richardson and freshmen Carlyle Davis and Melissa Bellin—the weekend belonged to Harvard co-captain Jack Brady.
It was a decision that left some in shock, others in tears, and many more in disbelief. Satinder Bajwa, the men’s and women’s squash coach who served Harvard for 11 years, told both teams Thursday at the Murr Center that despite recent victories—including the 2010 women’s national championship and two individual titles—his contract would not be renewed for the upcoming year.
