The Harvard women’s lacrosse team (7-7, 3-3 Ivy League) came up with a decisive 12-1 victory against UMass Lowell (0-16) on its home turf Tuesday night to even its record to .500 heading into the end of regular season play.
Although it currently stands with a .500 record at 4-4, the Harvard women’s lacrosse squad has sharpened a young team into a mature squad ready to dive into Ivy League play because of its tough schedule.
Harvard fell to No. 8 Virginia in Charlottesville, Va., on Tuesday night. Although the teams headed into halftime tied, 5-5, the Cavaliers outscored the Crimson 8-4 in the second frame to clinch the victory, 13-9.
On a windy day in April 2013, the Harvard baseball team took the field against Princeton in the rubber game of a doubleheader. The Crimson had decisively lost the first contest to the Tigers, 13-1, and was looking to bounce back to split the series at O’Donnell Field. What ensued was wilder than anyone could have imagined.
With a stacked recruiting class and returning lead scorer junior Meg Casscells-Hamby, Harvard promised a positive start to the season—heading winless into its fifth game was definitely not part of the game plan.
