Both junior Lane Leschly and sophomore Bo Leschly play varsity tennis at Harvard. Their grandfather, Jan Leschly, played professionally for Denmark. Their father, Mark Leschly ’90, also played for the Crimson.
The Crimson treats its fall off-season as practice, however, and is optimistic about future results.
Coming off two straight weekends of tournaments, both the men’s and women’s teams are looking to maintain their momentum after a hot start to the year. New and old faces on the team had their chance to hit the courts and see how their off-season training translated into in-season performance. And for many, the hard training paid off.
Both the men’s and women’s tennis teams both went 1-1 over the weekend, with both programs picking up wins versus the Big Red on Saturday before falling to the Lions on Sunday.
Men's and Women's Tennis both march on with positive performances this season.
Senior Erica Oosterhout tracks a backhand at the baseline. Oosterhout is playing from the Crimson’s No. 1 singles position this year. She was a unanimous All-Ivy First Team selection in singles play last season, a feat that she will aim to match in her final season playing on the Murr Center courts.
Despite a streaking hot start in the ECAC Championships and a series tie against Penn in the final, Harvard failed to win their final match.
