The Harvard softball team came into Sunday knowing it needed to win both games in order to advance to the Ivy League Championship Series.

After sweeping Brown in a doubleheader Saturday, Harvard returned to the field in Providence, R.I., Sunday to complete its four-game series against the Bears.

The Harvard softball team (16-17, 8-4) has struggled to find consistency throughout the season, splitting many doubleheaders. This Saturday, however, it all came together in dominating Yale (8-26, 3-9) in consecutive games, defeating it, 7-4, in the first game and 4-2 in the second.
