Women's Water Polo

The Harvard women's water polo team triumphed once again yesterday afternoon, drowning MIT 11-7.

The win lifted Harvard's record to 10-1, the only loss having come last weekend at the hands of Slippery Rock College.

Harvard seized the lead early, notching two quick goals. The Crimson's Kristan Johnson and Annie Wilson lit the scoreboard, before MIT's Lisa Fried punched in a powerplay goal--her first of three.

Harvard's Catherine Ysrael dominated the second quarter. First she scored off a steal by Johnson, and then assisted the next three goals--connecting with Alison Greis twice and then with Patti Wiedeman on a nice give and go play. Kelley Withy then pumped in one from way outside, running the score up to 7-1.

MIT staged a partial comeback, cranking in four unanswered goals. Fried floated one over the outstretched hands of Crimson goalie Tanya Humphreys, and then assisted teammate Clea Waite, Kathy Warren notched two successive short-handed goals, closing the gap to 7-5.

Lynley Ogilvie broke Harvard's dry spell, beating the MIT goalie to the corner. But MIT gained an easy tally when the Crimson netminder, Johnson, illegally brought the ball back into the net with her.

Withy and Fried exchanged powerplay goals for a 9-7 score before Wilson, displaying great finesse, spun past her defenders and pumped one into the corner of the net. Withy added an insurance goal for the 11-7 final.

Harvard will travel to MIT once again this weekend, for a four game tournament.

Radcliffe Rugby

The indomitable Radcliffe rugby squad triumphed once again yesterday, blanking Boston College, 4-0.

"This was definitely the most thrilling game of our season," said Claudia O'Grady after the road win.

The big thrill-producer was senior Cassandra Coe, who scored the Black and White's one and only try for the victory. Coe kicked from the 22-yard line, recovered the ball herself, and touched a down.

Also turning in outstanding efforts for Radcliffe were back Captain Elise Balboni, fullback Jill Vialet, and hooker O'Grady.

This Saturday, the Black and White plays its season finale, hosting arch-rival Dartmouth in a 2:30 p.m. The Big Green fell to Radcliffe earlier in the season at the Ivy Championships.

"It will be yet another, undefeated season, should we win," Maria Argento said.

Red Sox

BOSTON--Slugging outfielder Jim Rice is the new team captain of the Boston Red Sox. The designation was announced Monday, on the eve of the three-game series in New York. The Sox defeated the Yankees in the series opener last night, 5-4 in 11 innings.
