Junior goalie Molly Tissenbaum’s first career shutout for Harvard Women’s ice hockey on Friday earned her The Crimson’s Athlete of the Week title. But in a big week for Crimson athletics, quite a few Harvard athletes showed impressive performances deserving acknowledgement on the runners-up list.
Nearly one month ago, Harvard women’s volleyball easily handed rivals Penn and Princeton straight-set losses. In that critical weekend sweep, the Crimson not only shut both the Quakers and the Tigers out, but also snapped Penn’s four-match winning streak.
The Crimson (10-8, 6-2 Ivy) will look to repeat its performance from four weeks ago as it travels first to take on Penn (9-11, 3-5), followed by the Tigers (9-8, 4-4) for the second time this season.
Four members of the Harvard women’s tennis team traveled to Dartmouth for the three-day Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s Northeast Regional Championships this weekend. Two Crimson players picked up victories, with sophomore Nikki Kallenberg leading the way with three.
This past weekend marked a roller coaster performance for the Harvard women’s field hockey team. Despite strong play in its games against Cornell on Saturday and New Hampshire on Sunday, the Crimson dropped both games, and slipped into a tie for fourth in the Ivy League standings.
Bracing torrential downpour and icy winds for most of the weekend, the Harvard women’s golf team edged Princeton out by one stroke to rise from fourth on Saturday to first place on Sunday in the Princeton Invitational.
