It might have been the first time that the No. 17 Harvard men’s lacrosse team (10-5, 3-3) appeared in the Ivy League tournament, but it looked like veteran squad, cruising past No. 15 Penn (8-6,4-2) Friday afternoon at Schoellkopf Field and earning a spot in the finals of the Ancient Eight tournament.
Luckily, that wasn’t the case Saturday night, as Harvard (6-14, 3-5 Ivy) earned a convincing victory over Brown (7-13, 1-7) on the day of co-captain Miyoko Pettit’s birthday. The Crimson went 1-1 in its pair of home matches, losing to Yale (12-7, 6-2) on Friday night.
Any athlete will tell you that no amount of practice can replace the experience gained from playing together in a live-game situation.
