The Crimson (10-10-4, 9-6-3 ECAC) now turns its attention to Boston College (14-12-3, 14-6-0 Hockey East) as the team vies to stay above the .500 mark. Harvard played a portion of its fall schedule in sub-.500 territory and wants nothing less than to return there.
This year, the Crimson travels to New Haven to play an unfamiliar role: spoiler. While the Bulldogs have already clinched a share of the Ivy League title, Harvard aims to prevent Yale from earning an outright crown.
As much cold as winter can bring, Harvard basketball and ice hockey teams promise sizzling action this season. Both men's and women's basketball aim to take the next step and claim an elusive championship. Meanwhile, men's hockey looks to rediscover magic from last year, while women's hockey looks to rebound.
This supplemental issue is a snapshot of four Harvard sports—football, field hockey, women’s soccer, and men’s soccer. All have lost games. All have shown flashes of potential. And all face the bulk of Ivy League play, which will test the quality of these Crimson squads.
The fall has Harvard-Yale. The winter culminates in the madness of March. While the spring lacks a signature event, this 2017 season brings four teams with compelling storylines. Follow softball, baseball, men's lacrosse, and women's lacrosse as the teams vie for Ivy success and individual glory.
