Freshman Kyle Rehkemper, shown above in previous action, put in a solid performance over the weekend for the Crimson—recording 23 kills—but it wasn’t enough to propel Harvard to victory. The Crimson dropped two road games, one at Saint Francis Friday and the other at Juniata the next day.
Freshman outside hitter Chris Gibbons, one of four rookie starters for the Crimson, was second on the squad with nine kills in a 3-0 win over Stevens at home Saturday night. Gibbons has picked up 61 kills on the year, helping spark Harvard to a 5-1 record—its best start since 2004.
Pascal Mensah, shown here in earlier action, took an unconventional path to Cambridge. He lived in Ghana, Suriname, North Carolina, and New Hampshire, but, thanks to his hard work and the kindness of numerous strangers, Mensah ultimately found his way to Harvard.
Co-captain Rob Millock played the final home game of his career on Saturday, a 1-0 loss to Columbia. Seniors Alex Chi, Shomesh Chaudhuri, James Pelletier, and co-captain Jaren LaGreca were also honored.
