Under the bright lights of Cumnock Field, the Harvard women’s rugby team took the field Tuesday night for its first-ever game as a varsity squad.
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.
After capturing the CSA National Championships last year, the team repeated its success, dropping just one match overall.
The Crimson cruised through an undefeated dual meet season en route to a second place finish at Ivy League Championships.
As the Harvard women’s rugby team transitions to varsity status next year, the Crimson will have an experienced leader at the helm of the emerging program. The Harvard Athletic Department announced the hiring of Sue Parker last Wednesday. Parker will take over as head coach of the varsity team starting in the fall of 2013.
The Harvard sailing team split up along the Charles River, as the Crimson competed in three regattas in the Boston area.
The team looked to capitalize on its success from last weekend, when Harvard notched a victory at the Ted Ferrarone Team Race.
Harvard’s performance at the season-ending meet did not quite live up to its regular-season promise. The Crimson turned in eight top-30 performances but failed to reach the finals in any event.
In their final competitive event of the season, eight members of the Harvard men’s swimming and diving team will hit the water in Indianapolis to compete in the 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships. Coming off a season in which the Crimson went undefeated in dual meets before barely losing the Ivy League Championships to four-time defending champion Princeton, Harvard will have one final test against the nation’s best squads.
While the rest of her team’s season concluded with a fifth-place finish at the ECAC Championships, junior Sara Li’s season was not quite over. This past weekend, the co-captain was the lone member of the Harvard women’s swimming and diving team to compete at the 2013 NCAA Championships.
With a second-place finish in the one-meter, Mosca became the first Harvard diver since 2003 to punch his ticket to the NCAA Championships.
With an undefeated dual meet season in the books, the No. 18 Harvard men’s swimming and diving team entered this weekend pursuing one last goal for the season: an Ivy League title. But after three days of competition, the Crimson eventually fell short of its last goal, losing the Ivy League Championships by a mere 68 points to Princeton.
This time around, Sobhy wasted little time, stringing together 11-8, 11-7, and 11-8 wins to pick up the victory and seal the national title for the Crimson.
Having taken down all other opponents, the Crimson had its eyes set on an undefeated dual meet season. All that stood in the way was one last matchup against conference foe Penn.
With a historic win against Princeton two weekends ago in the books, the No. 16 Harvard men’s swimming and diving team had just one dual meet left on its schedule. Having taken down all other opponents, the Crimson had its eyes set on its second undefeated dual season in the past three years. All that stood in the way was its last home meet of the season against conference foe Penn.
