Freshman midfielder Mai Le played on an Ivy League-winning team this year, but she isn’t the first in her family to do so. Her mother led Harvard to Ivy titles in the late ’70s and early ’80s and still holds program records.
Through nine games, freshman running back Zach Boden has exceeded expectations, rushing for five touchdowns and 464 yards.
Harvard freshman Hillary Crowe, shown here in previous action, tallied a power-play goal in the second period to cut the Crimson’s deficit to just one goal, but host Cornell scored two more in the final frame to pull away to a 5-3 win Saturday evening in Ithaca, N.Y., to hand Harvard its first loss.
Shown here in earlier action, junior goalie Laura Bellamy recorded a shutout Friday evening against Colgate in Hamilton, N.Y., where a short-handed Crimson squad scored 42 seconds into the game and did not look back on the way to a 2-0 victory. Bellamy’s goals-against average fell to 0.66, among the nation’s best.
Freshman Cheta Emba (right) and sophomore Jessica Wright console fellow goalkeeper Bethany Kanten after the Crimson’s 3-0 loss to BU in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The rookie starter recorded four saves.
Sophomore Laurent Rivard led the Crimson in three-point shooting last year.
Junior Kyle Casey and co-captain Keith Wright form a fearsome pairing in the Harvard frontcourt.
Rookie Temi Fagbenle (center) was the most highly-touted recruit in recent memory for the Harvard women's basketball program.
Co-captain Melanie Baskind paces the Crimson with eight goals and as many assists so far this season. Baskind and the Crimson seek retribution against crosstown rival Boston University in the first round of the NCAA tournament after falling to the Terriers, 3-0, earlier in the year.
Lindsay Hallion '08, shown above, and Juanise Cornell are two new recruits Harvard coach Kathy Delaney-Smith picked up—but for her coaching staff.
