On a weekend where six Harvard athletes made it to the national semifinals, the Dublin native saved two championship points to capture the 36th men’s title in program history with a 12-10 fifth-game victory.
“The win this year was more about backing up what we had already achieved,” sophomore Gina Kennedy said.
In straight sweeps of No. 5 Yale and No. 10 Brown, Harvard increased its undefeated streak to 50 matches—spanning more than three years—and claimed its third straight outright Ivy League title.
On Saturday, the No. 2 Crimson faced No. 1 Princeton in a grudge match of the unbeatens. Just a day later, the team was set for a rematch of last year’s national championship against No. 7 Penn. For the third and fourth times, Harvard bended as far as it has all season. The Crimson dropped just one match each day.
