Immediately after our last college finals ended, while camping in the woods, my Senior Outdoor Reflection Trip [SORT] of 11 people sat around in a circle, each person reflecting on their time at Harvard. By the time it got to me, it was pouring rain and pitch-black outside, but still, everyone turned to listen to my deep, thoughtful ruminations on the last four years.
The Harvard field hockey team had luck on its side up north this weekend, earning two wins over the University of Maine and the University of Vermont at the Catamount Classic Tournament. The Crimson’s four-game win streak is the team’s best start to the season since 2005, when the squad also started off 4-0.
For the third straight year, Amanda Sobhy cruised through the CSA Individual National Championships on her way to a Ramsay Cup victory. With the triumph, Sobhy became the first player in Harvard history to win the Ramsay Cup three times.
Junior Amanda Sobhy defeated Trinity’s Kanzy El Defrawy in three games for the second consecutive year to capture her third straight national title on the women’s side, while senior Ali Farag avenged last year’s semifinal loss to St. Lawrence’s Amr Khaled Khalifa with a 3-1 win in the men's finals.
