In late February, Angela Ruggiero ‘04—a former Harvard ice hockey player—stepped down from her position on the International Olympic Committee Athlete’s Commission.
Harvard split their road trip this weekend against two ranked opponents, going 1-1 in the last two matches of the 2017-2018 regular season. The Crimson took down No. 8/8 St. Lawrence on Friday night in before falling to ECAC-leaders, No. 2/2 Clarkson by a score of 3-1 on Saturday evening.
In the Beanpot consolation game, the Crimson overcame a 3-1 deficit thanks to a pair of goals by freshaman forward Becca Gilmore to defeat Northeastern, 4-3.
Harvard came up just short of a miraculous comeback against Boston University in the 2018 Beanpot semifinal on Tuesday evening, falling by a score of 3-2.
In a weekend that pitted the Crimson against two of the nation’s fiercest opponents, the Harvard women’s hockey team garnered mixed results, coming from behind to tie No. 5 Cornell, 2-2, on Friday, before falling to No. 4 Colgate, 4-0, on Saturday.
