Despite losing senior quarterback Conner Hempel for one quarter and not having senior running back Andrew Casten in Hanover, the Harvard football team managed to hold on for 23-12 win over Dartmouth by persistent defense and strong playmaking from junior running back Paul Stanton. With the win, the Crimson remains undefeated and stands alone atop the Ivy League with just three games separating the squad from the end of the season and an Ivy crown.
Former world No. 4 and Harvard tennis star James Blake, who turned pro after his sophomore year in 1999, won his first round match against Thiemo de Bakker at Wimbledon Tuesday. The win advanced Blake to the second round at Wimbledon for the first time since he was ousted in the second round in 2008.
