The Harvard men's volleyball team secured its first-ever EIVA postseason win with a 3-2 victory over George Mason on April 25.
The Harvard men’s volleyball team (7-2, 3-1 EIVA) added to the program’s best win over No. 9 Penn State by racking up another straight set conference victory over St. Francis (5-9, 2-3 EIVA) Saturday night at the Malkin Athletic Center, 3-0.
Harvard (9-1, 4-1 Ivy) was expected to have little trouble with the Lions Saturday afternoon, as Columbia is in its second season as a varsity program. On the other hand, the Big Red came to Cambridge with plans of snagging an upset against the 2012 CSA national champions. But after a sweep of the first round of matches, led by co-captain Natasha Kingshott, the win never looked in doubt for the hosts.
Junior forward Lyndsey Fry and sophomore defender Michelle Picard are used to taking the ice for Harvard women’s hockey coach Katey Stone in the Crimson’s red and white uniforms. But next month, the duo will be adding a third color to their jerseys when Stone sends them on the ice: blue.
