For the past two years, the Harvard softball team has entered the final weekend of Ivy League play within striking distance of reaching the championship series. Each time, the Crimson has won the first game of a weekend series with Dartmouth and then dropped the final three.
In its home opener, the Harvard softball team mercy-ruled Rhode Island (1-20) in back-to-back games on Tuesday afternoon at Soldiers Field.
Harvard’s softball team headed to Dartmouth to play a crucial doubleheader on Sunday. The Crimson split the games, winning the first game 2-0 in the eighth inning and losing the second on a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning.
