Playing at Bright-Landry Hockey Center for the first time in over a month, the No. 10/10 Harvard women’s ice hockey beat the Big Green, 4-1.
With 15 minutes left on the clock, the Harvard football team found itself in unfamiliar territory. Trailing in the second half for the first time since week two, the Crimson needed to mount a fourth quarter comeback to defeat Penn.
Among rugby's senior standouts was co-captain Xanni Brown, who spearheaded the Crimson’s offensive charge as the team’s leading scorer.
Heading into its 2013-2014 season, the Harvard women’s ice hockey team was already facing an uphill battle. The Crimson had graduated its leading scorer, Jillian Dempsey ’13, and had lost three other key players along with long-tenured coach, Katey Stone, to the Olympic roster.
Entering its first USA Rugby Division I National Championships as a varsity squad, the Harvard women’s rugby team (7-6) looked compete against the country’s top teams in the Sweet Sixteen.
