For many wrestlers, the offseason is long because it is not truly off. Depending how you look at it, wrestling either never stops or rarely starts. Months of practice time overshadow minutes of live action.
Last Friday night, Harvard men’s volleyball suffered perhaps the most crushing loss of the season. The result, which stranded Harvard in fourth in the EIVA, left a bitter taste. Also lingering was the question of how the Crimson would respond to such an emotional bender. The answer came exactly four nights later.
Last weekend loomed as a threat to the Crimson’s reign, as the squad visited the No. 2 Quakers and No. 4 Princeton. But the threat never materialized, as Harvard dropped its first matches of the season but still dispatched Penn and the Tigers, 7-2 and 8-1, respectively.
