Several Harvard athletes compete on multiple teams. They would not have it any other way.
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 losing to Brown last week due to an error-filled seventh inning, it was a close, hard fought loss this week that prevented the Crimson from returning to the ILCS for the fourth-straight year.
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 Crimson, having won the first game, appeared well on its way to a second win before losing a lead late to end up splitting the second doubleheader.
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.
Harvard grabbed the lead early, but the Crimson (9-15, 2-2) proved unable to hang on against the Friars (10-17-1), losing 5-3.
After dropping its first two games of the Ivy League season against Penn on Friday, Harvard softball bounced back to sweep Columbia on Saturday. The Crimson (9-14, 2-2 Ivy) relied on strong pitching to top the Lions (11-13, 1-3).
In its first weekday game of the season, the Harvard softball team lost a close 8-7 game to Loyola Marymount.
After opening the season 2-3, the Harvard softball team dropped three games this weekend.
For the fourth year in a row, the national championship went to a competitor in his first season at the collegiate level.
While most non-athletes are gradually easing back into the swing of classes and schoolwork, winter-sport athletes have been on the grind and back in Boston for a while now. It’s getting down to the wire as some winter sports face some tough tests towards the end of their schedule. How have they been faring recently? How's on the rise and who's stock is falling?

The Harvard men’s basketball team faces two league rivals at home this weekend, hosting Yale on Friday and Brown the following evening.
While J-Term is a time to get off campus for many Harvard students, winter athletes stay on campus to train and compete. This year, the wrestling team decided to devote some of its free time to community service.
It is said sports bring people together like nothing else. Families spend countless hours travelling to games and cheering each other on.
For the first time in recent memory, Harvard Campus Services and the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter have teamed to bring holiday cheer to Harvard Square’s homeless population.
The Crimson came into the exhibition game on a four-game winning streak, in which it had given up only three goals, while scoring 16, including a 6-0 victory over Dartmouth on Friday night.
