The Harvard women's volleyball team discovered this weekend that strong starts don't always equal strong finishes.
The Crimson (6-7, 0-0 Ivy)lost two of three matches at the Harvard Invitational, and in both of those losses, Harvard held commanding game leads that its opponents were able to erase quickly.
Even though the Crimson dominated Wagner in three quick games on Saturday morning, it was unable to maintain its offensive firepower during its matches against Northeastern Friday night and UNH Saturday afternoon.
"It was frustrating," freshman middle hitter Mariah Posipil said. "We are having a problem finishing out games."
In spite of losing two of three matches this weekend, the Crimson ended its tournament on a high note by placing two players on the All-Tournament Team. Senior co-captain and middle hitter Katherine Hart and junior outside hitter Erin Denniston, who leads the Crimson this season with an average of 3.71 kills per game, were honored for their stellar play this weekend.

"We played a great match," said Coach Jennifer Weiss. "It was hard-fought to the end."
