While freshman Bente van Vlijmen took home Athlete of the Week honors after leading the field hockey team to an Ivy League-clinching victory over the weekend, three other Crimson student-athletes had especially notable performances, earning this week’s Athlete of the Week runners-up honors.
Vince’s path to the Olympics began in 8th grade, when he picked up the sport of rowing to satisfy his school’s athletic requirement. Despite his family history in water sports, in particular swimming and water polo, Breet decided his abilities were best suited for an on-the-surface activity.
As Harvard’s scoring leader for the 2015 campaign, senior forward Jake Freeman finds himself in a somewhat unsurprising position: He sits atop the Ancient Eight in points with 16, already flirting with the 17 points he amassed last season.
The Harvard football team does not lose to non-conference opponents. The Crimson has beaten every non-Ivy League team it has faced since dropping its season opener at Holy Cross in 2011. That was long enough ago that not a single member of the current squad was there to suffer defeat.
Despite solid play from junior outside hitter Paige Kebe, the Crimson continues to skid after dropping last night’s match to UNH by a score of three sets to none, Harvard suffered sixth-consecutive loss this season.
