W. Water Polo Endures Marathon Spring Break

If you're looking for stamina, look no further than the women's water polo team.

Harvard (11-7, 1-3 Ivy) criss-crossed the country last week, playing eight away games in 10 days.

In a test of their endurance as well as their playing skills, the women's marathon break included face-offs against longtime rivals UMass, Princeton and Brown. While the Crimson fell to its Ivy League opponents, captains Jesse Gunderson and Natasha Magnuson led the team from Connecticut to California to capture five solid wins.

The Crimson's first stop on its national tour was Connecticut College, where it faced off against UMass and the home team. Harvard's defense was in top form against the Minutewomen. Junior goalkeeper Danielle McCarthy made an impressive eight saves and Gunderson drew four kick-outs in order to keep the Crimson women within striking distance early on. After being down early, Harvard scored three goals in the third quarter to tie the score up at 4-4.
